High protein granola bars

Makes 12 granola bars.


  • 2 cups of nuts and seeds - this depends entirely on your preference so use whichever variety you prefer
  • 1 ½ cups of oats
  • A generous half cup of peanut butter
  • A generous half cup of honey
  • 10-12 pitted dates
  • ½ a cup of shredded coconut (aim for an unsweetened variety)

  • A pinch of salt


  1. Put the dates in a blender and process until the chopped pieces easily stick together.
  2. Melt the peanut butter and the honey in a saucepan and add in the chopped dates.
  3. Stir until the dates have broken down and the mixture is smooth and spreadable.
  4. Add the vanilla extract and set aside.
  5. Blend the nuts and seeds into chunks and combine with the coconut, oats and salt.
  6. Add to the peanut butter and honey mixture and mix well.
  7. Line a baking dish with greaseproof paper and add the mixture, spreading evenly.
  8. Bake at 180 degrees (160 if using a fan oven) for approximately 30 minutes until golden brown.
  9. Once baked, cut into 12 bars whilst still warm, before the mixture hardens.
