peanutbutter, hempseed granola bars

Since I am small I love granola bars. Already my mom made some by herself out of a charity cookbook
with all kinds of  "hippie food" like my grandma used to say.
Since my week is usually full with work, Swedish lessons and other activities, I often can feel
how my energylevel goes down after two hours of not eating. Granola bars are a great snack to kind of bridge the time until the next real meal and raise your engery levels.
I tried to make a healthier verson, cause I really do not like to use refined sugar.
Refined sugar is nothing more than pure, refined carbohydrates without any vitamins and minerals.
So you will find in my recipe a version with agave nectar, coconut sugar and dates.
The slowly realeasing carbohydrates and trace minerals of the agave sirup in combination with the glucose rich dates making these bars also perfect for a pre-workout or after-workout snack.

granola bars
  • 1 1/2 dl agave sirup
  • 1/2 dl  coconut sugar
  • 2 taplespoons peanutbutter
  • a pinch of salt and vanilla powder
  • 2 dl oats
  • 2 dl ricecereal
  • 1/2 dl hempseeds
  • a bit less then a handfull chopped dates
chocolate topping
  • 1 taplespoon coconut oil
  • 1 tablespoon agave sirup
  • 1 1/2 tablespoons cacao

Take a pot and heat up the agave sirup, coconut sugar, peanutbutter, salt and vanilla powder. Let it just boil for half a minute and then add the other ingredients. Spread the mixture in a form, which you before coated with oil or vegan butter. Place it for an hour in the freezer, then take it out and slice it.

Melt the coconut oil and mix it with the other ingredients for the chocolate topping and sprinkle over the bars. Place them in the fridge or freezer until the sprinkles are hard. Enjoy!
