These energy boosting apricot – mango oat bars are an absolute dream! So chewvy, fruity and fragrant, a real crowd pleaser. I love having these in the morning with some warm milk or in the afternoon when I need a bit of energy boost.

And the best part? They take literally 5min prep time and 25min in the oven.

This recipe will make 16 chunky oat bars. You’ll need:

2 cups of oats

1 cup of dried unsulphured apricots

1/2 dried mango

2 tbsp almond butter

7 tbsp honey

1 tbsp cinnamon

4 tbsp melted coconut oil

1/2 cup of almonds

Pre-heat the oven to 140C.

Add all ingredients except almonds to the food processor and blend until a sticky dough forms. Then add almonds and whizz for a minute until they break down in chunks and mix in with the dough.

Transfer the dough into a baking tray and gently press down. Bake for 25mins, take out the oven and cut into oat bars.
