A Well Seasoned Recipe - Visit us in store on 64th Avenue, in Langley, BC

  • 1 cup packed pitted dates
  • ½ cup honey
  • ½ cup creamy peanut butter or almond butter
  • 1 cup unsalted almonds, roughly chopped
  • 1 ½ cups rolled oats
  • optional additions:
  • chocolate chips, dried fruit, nuts, banana chips, vanilla, etc.
  1. Pulse dates in a food processor until small bits remain.
  2. On a sheet pan in a 350 degree F oven, toast the chopped almonds & oats for about 15 minutes or until slightly golden brown.
  3. Place oats, almonds and dates in a large mixing bowl - set aside.
  4. Melt honey and peanut butter in a small saucepan over low heat.
  5. Stir and pour over oat mixture and then mix, breaking up the dates to disperse throughout.
  6. Once thoroughly mixed, transfer to an 8x8-inch baking dish or other small pan lined with plastic wrap or parchment paper so they lift out easily.
  7. Press down firmly until uniformly flattened & tightly packed.
  8. Cover with parchment or plastic wrap, and let firm up in fridge for atleast 1 hour.
  9. Remove bars from pan and chop into bars.
  10. Store in an airtight container for up to a few days or freeze.

I made these but with some additions.
I added chopped dried apricots, pumpkin seeds, hemp hearts and dark chocolate chips.
I really like them.
Next time I’ll add chia seeds.

Cheers, Laura
