Energy bars, cereals or others are a commercial option often used to quench hunger between meals or replenish energy after a workout. However, they are not as healthy as they seem but may contain trans fats, palm oil and even, sugars in appreciable amounts. In his replacement, today we bring a very simple recipe of fitness bars of oats and nuts that we recommend to try at home:

How to make fitness bars of oats and nuts

Difficulty: Easy
  • Total time20 m
  • Production20 m
  • Resth

To make these fitness bars we start by placing in a blender or in the glass of a kitchen engine the dried figs along with the liquid stevia and the juice of two segments of orange (approximately 4 tablespoons). We operate the engine and process until a consistent but moist paste is obtained. If necessary, add water little by little, a few tablespoons, until obtaining a paste of figs.

In a bowl we mixed the figs with all the dry ingredients : the oat flakes (I processed them a little to make them smaller), the grated coconut, the coarsely chopped nuts and the almonds cut in half. At this point you can add more water if necessary or more sweetener if having tasted seems to lack sweetness.

Unite all the ingredients with the help of a spoon or using your hands to achieve it and in a rectangular bowl place the preparation, flattening it and extending until it reaches a centimeter in thickness. We mark the bars (rectangular or square) and take them to the refrigerator for an hour.

After that time the bars will be firm, consistent and crispy. Unmold and ready to consume.

Tasting

These fitness bars are ideal to replace commercial options. And the best, we can make them one day and refrigerate to dispose of them all week.

They are very rich in fiber and vegetable proteins, so they satisfy easily without having free sugars or added. They are also an excellent choice for vegans and children love its sweet taste and crispy consistency
