home made enrgy bars energy bars

Super simple, super delicious, super cheap. follow the recipe below to make your own energy boosting hunger banishers. The recipe is so simple you can add whatever powders and potions you like in your 'sports bar' (no not those kind of of powders and potions or that kind of sports bar) and they will keep happily stored in a sealed box in the fridge for a couple of weeks.

Of course they are vegan, free from processed sugars, blah blah blah blah, the good stuff!

1 + 1/2 cup chopped figs

1/2 cup almonds

1/2 cup cashews

6/7 tbsp hemp powder

any spices or whatever to taste (ginger, coconut, coco powder etc)


soak the figs for at least 30 mins, i use warm water

grind the nuts to dust in your food processor/blender then remove

when figs are ready remove from water (keep some of the water) chop off the hard stalks then blast in the food processor till paste like.

mix figs, nuts and everything else together in a bowl

press into a baking dish then place in the freezer for an hour

take out the freezer, cut into slices then store in the fridge.

the bars will probably be a little softer than shop bought ones, I use a little plastic tub to carry mine around.
