Homemade Energy Bars - Barres Énergétiques Maison

Homemade Energy Bars

I don't like to buy Energy Bars at the store because they are full of sugar and the list of ingredients is usually long. Also they don't taste that good. I have been making my own Energy Bars for a while now. Most of my recipes involves peanut butter, oats, dark chocolate. In this recipe I decided to add dates. I keep these raw, no-bake bars in a container in the fridge. They don't last long in my house.



1 cup oats
1 cup dates
1/4 cup almonds
1/4 cup pecans
1/3 cup peanut butter, I like unsalted
2 tablespoons honey, I like buckwheat
2 tablespoons chia seeds
3 tablespoons sweetened coconut 
1/4 cup dark chocolate chips.

1- Place oats, dates, almonds and pecans in a food processor. Pulse for about 30 seconds until the ingredients are broken down into crumb-sized pieces.
2- In a large bowl mix the peanut butter with honey, chia seeds and coconut flakes. Add the oats mixture and chocolate chips. Mix well.
3- Place a parchment paper in a 8x8 pan. 
4- Press the mixture into the pan. Place in the fridge and chill for about an hour before cutting into bars.
5- Store the bars in the fridge in an hermetic container. 



Les barres énergies du commerce ont une liste d'ingrédients très longue, ont trop de sucre et sont dispendieuses. J'aime essayer différentes recettes de barres énergétiques. J'y inclus du beurre d'arachide, des flocons d'avoine, des pépites de chocolat noir. Dans cette recette j'ai ajouté des dates, que c'est bon. Je garde ces barres au frigo dans un contenant hermétique. Mon fils les a dévoré en deux jours.


1 tasse de flocons d'avoine
1 tasse de dates
1/4 tasse d'amandes
1/4 tasse de pacanes
1/3 tasse de beurre d'arachide, j'utilises le sans sel
2 c. table de miel, j'utilises le sarrasin
2 c. table de graines de chia
3 c. table de noix de coco sucrée
1/4 tasse de pépites de chocolate noir

1- Mettre les flocons d'avoine, les dates, les amandes et les pacanes dans un robot culinaire. Mélanger  en mode impulsions jusqu'à ce que le mélange soit grossier.
2- Dans un grand bol mélanger le beurre d'arachide, le miel, les graines de chia et la noix de coco avec une fourchette.
3- Ajouter le mélange de flocons d'avoine et les pépites de chocolat. Bien mélanger.
4- Mettre du papier parchemin dans un plat de 8x8 pouces. Presser le mélange dans le plat.
5- Mettre au frigo pendant au moins une heure avant de couper en barres.
