No Bake Granola Bars

2 cups pitted dates
¾ cup peanut butter (preferably unsweetened: literally just nuts and salt) Substitute: any unsweetened nut butter

¼ cup honey

2 2/3 cups old-fashioned oats

2 scoops Nourished in 5

1/3 cup chopped walnuts Substitute: any other nuts

¼ cup vegan mini chocolate chips Substitute: any other topping you’d like

1 teaspoon cinnamon

¼ teaspoon salt

    • Put dates in bowl and cover completely with water. Microwave for 2 minutes. Place dates along with ½ cup of the water in a food processor. Pulse until chopped and blended thoroughly.

    • Combine nut butter and honey in a small saucepan, and melt over low heat. Stir together until mixed well and fairly warm.

    • Place dates, oats, Nourished in 5, walnuts, chocolate chips, cinnamon, salt, and nut butter/honey mixture in a large bowl. Mix until all ingredients are thoroughly and evenly distributed. It will be very thick, so be patient with it. (I actually used my hands at one point, but if you do, make sure to coat your hands with cooking spray or some kind of oil).

    • Line a glass dish or cookie sheet with parchment paper or tin foil. It really doesn’t matter what size you use, but know that the bigger you go, the thinner the granola bars. Using a spoon, place the mixture into the dish/pan. Using a spatula, make sure the mixture is spread evenly among the dish. Press down in all places to make sure it is compact.

    • Place the dish/pan into the freezer for about one hour. It will be set by then. Slice into bars. I made 12 bars with mine, but once again, it depends on your pan.

Make sure you store them in the fridge. 


Enjoy wholesome goodness!
