My alarm goes off at 6.45 a.m. Then the subsequent ones at 7 a.m., 7.15 a.m. and 7.20 a.m. to wake me up for school. As the winter months approach it’s (for some reason) even harder to have the motivation to get up, so there are some days when I open my eyes and it’s a quarter to eight. Needless to say, I have to rush to get out of the door. There’s definitely no time to make my carefully layered toast (with nut butter, honey and sliced fruit) or yoghurt and muesli, let alone enough time to eat them. That’s when things like granola bars (or cookies in this case) come in handy. I can grab one on my way out of the door for some no-fuss morning fuel.

Ingredients

Quantity Ingredient
70g rolled oats
90g pitted dates
35g almonds
2 tablespoons Almond butter
1 tablespoon maple syrup
1 tablespoon cocoa powder
30g dark chocolate, melted, (optional)
30g cornflakes
or 30g puffed rice cereal

Method

  1. Line a baking tray with baking parchment. Dry-toast the oats in a large frying pan over a high heat, stirring often, until fragrant. Remove from the heat and leave to cool in the pan.
  2. In a food processor, blend the dates, almonds, almond nut butter, maple syrup, 2 tablespoons of water and the cocoa powder until a paste is formed. Add the paste to the oats with the cornflakes and knead together gently with your hands. Divide into 7 balls and flatten them slightly onto the lined baking tray. Drizzle with the chocolate (if using) and leave to set at room temperature.
