I love making healthy (but delicous) bars because they are the perfect snack or breakfast to eat on-the-go or at home in between a meal. These bars are also great for a healthy dessert!
Filled with protein and fuel from the buckwheat and oats, iron and magnesium from the mood boosting cacao and vitamins, minerals and healthy fats from all the other ingredients!
What I also love about these bars is they are super simple to make with no baking involved.
These are seriously addictive!
No-Bake Chocolate Sea Salt Granola Bars
12-15 medjool dates
1 cup oats
1/2 cup buckwheat groats
2 tbsp almond butter (or nut butter of choice)
1-2 tbsp cacao nibs
1 tbsp chia seeds
1 bar of Seed & Bean Cornish Sea Salt chocolate (1/2 chopped into chunks & 1/2 for melting down)
Pinch of sea salt
In a large bowl or food processor add the pitted medjool dates with 1 tbsp of water.
If in a bowl, mash with a fork until dates become well combined and caramel like or blend in a food processor for a quick and easier option.
Add the rest of the ingredients to the bowl and mix together until well incorporated and until the mixture is sticking together. Using your hands works better for this!
Line a cake or bread tin with parchment paper and pour the mixture into it pressing the mixture down tightly and firmly.
Pop in the freezer to set for at least 1-2 hours.
Store in a container in the freezer.
