These no-bake chocolate energy bars are all natural, vegan and they have no added sugar. Great tasting energy boosting bars are full of good omegas, good fat, fruit sugar and complex carbohydrates, making them perfect to fuel on the go, during a long run or during the day as a snack.

180g pitted medjool dates
40g cocoa powder unsweetened
40g cup whole chia seeds
1 tsp. vanilla extract
40g unsweetened coconut flakes
1/4 tsp sea salt
120g walnut pieces
30g chopped dark chocolate or dark chocolate chips
40g oats

METHOD: Place dates in a blender or food processor and purée until a thick paste forms. Add cocoa powder, chia seeds, vanilla, coconut and salt. Pulse until all ingredients are combined.

Remove mixture from blender and place into a bowl. Mix in walnut, chocolate and oats.
Cut a large length of greaseproof paper and place one end of it into an 8×8 pan. Press mixture into pan.

Once it’s pressed into all corners, flip over and out of the pan. Wrap the block tightly with the excess paper and place in the refrigerator overnight.

In the morning, unwrap the block and cut into bars. Store in an air-tight container in the refrigerator.
