No Bake Energy Bars with Oat, Peanut Butter, Carrot, Dates and Flax Seed.
These pocket-size no bake energy bars are so delicious, filling, unbelievably easy to make and only a few ingredients needed. Perfect for snack, workout food, and even for breakfast!
It’s a remake of my Energy Bars, but now it has better texture, more delicious and with a strong food processor, you can process and combine the ingredients all at once, which means way less mess!
I love to make my own chewy, healthy, divine energy bars, it’s a much better choice than buy one in the store! I know exactly what I put in them, I know there is no preservative, no additional food coloring, nor sugar!
Perfect grab-and-go for the busy days – which happen often these days -, you can make them ahead and store them in the fridge! Since it’s easy to reach (store in fridge, packet size), there is no more excuse to have a quick breakfast, and there is no need for junky snacks!No Bake Energy Bars with Oat, Peanut Butter, Carrot, Dates and Flax Seed. #recipe #fdbloggers Click To Tweet
No Bake Energy Bars
- 2 tbsp Flax seed

- 1 cup Dates (pitted, chopped)
- ½ cup Hot Water
- 1 tbsp Coconut Oil
- 1 tbsp Honey
- ¼ cup grated Carrot
- 2 tbsp Raisins * Optional
- 3 cup Oat
- ½ Lemon's Zest
- Pour hot water on the chopped dates.
- Add the coconut oil, the lemon zest and the honey to the dates, mix them well.
- Grind the flax seed with a spice grinder.
- Put the flax seed flour, the peanut butter and the grated carrot (plus the optional raisins) to the food processor.
- Add the oat and the dates with the water to the food processor too.
- Let them combine completely, it'll take a minute or two.
- Line a pan with plastic wrap. It'll make easier the bars to remove
- Pour the mixture to the pan, level it, so the energy bars will be even thickness everywhere.
- Put it in the fridge for at least minutes before serving it!
So, why would you buy energy bars, when you can make 20 in 15 minutes? Anyway, it was a lifesaver for me last week, we had a really busy week, so I hardly had any time to sit down and eat a normal breakfast. It was super delicious, I just grabbed one from the fridge or my bag and I was ready to go, and since it was so filling, I wasn’t hungry ’til lunch!
For customization I recommend a pinch of cinnamon, some chocolate chip, chopped nuts (if you’re not allergic to them), chopped cranberries or a drizzle of chocolate on the top.
Really worth to try it, so simple and delicious! Kids will love it too!
