I wanted to share with you all Madeleine Shaw’s great little recipe for her Seedy Energy Bars. I made them a while ago and have only just got round to blogging about them! Whilst I was a bit apprehensive that these may taste a little too healthy to be enjoyable, I did really like them. (Although I did add a good dollop of honey for some extra sweetness!).
The recipe was really simple and the bars would be perfect to take to work to give you that much-needed energy boost!
- 1 ripe banana
- 2 tablespoons coconut oil, plus extra for greasing
- 4 tablespoons tahini
- pinch salt
- 1 teaspoon cinnamon
- 100g pumpkin seeds
- 100g sunflower seeds
- 2 tablespoons chia seeds
- 4 tablespoons sesame seeds
- In the food processor blend the banana, coconut oil, tahini, salt and cinnamon, until you have a paste.
- Add the rest of the ingredients and pulse for another minute.
- Pour the mixture out on to a coconut oil-greased roasting tin or cake tin, and put it in the freezer for 1 hour.
- Remove it form the freezer, cut into bars and transfer to the fridge. These bars will last for 1 week in the fridge.
Although, if you don’t have time to make these, I couldn’t recommend these seedy 9 Bars enough! I bought them when they were on offer the other week to take with me to work and they’re so delish. My favourite so far is definitely the Raspberry Cocoa Kick!
