Cherry, Chocolate And Almond Super Power Bars


115g old fashioned rolled oats

40g flaked almonds

1 tbsp golden linseeds

1 tbsp sesame seeds

35g unsweetened whole grain-puffed cereal

160g dried cherries

80g chopped dried apricots

50g good quality dark vegan chocolate, roughly chopped

100g crunchy almond butter

80g coconut sugar

125g agave syrup

1/2 tsp vanilla extract

Generous pinch of sea salt flakes


  1. Preheat oven to 180C and grease an 8 inch square baking pan with oil.
  2. Mix together rolled oats, flaked almonds, linseeds and sesame seeds. Place on a baking tray and bake for 5-8 minutes until lightly toasted. Shake the pan halfway through to ensure even browning.
  3. Allow oat mixture to cool slightly. In the meantime, in large bowl, combine  cereal, dried cherries, dried apricots, dark chocolate. Now add the oat mixture and combine together.
  4. In a small saucepan combine almond butter, sugar, agave, vanilla extract and salt. Cook over medium heat until the mixture begins to bubble and the coconut sugar has dissolved. This should take 3-4 minutes.
  5. Allow liquid to cool for 5 minutes and then pour mixture over the dry ingredients and mix with a spatula. Transfer the mixture to your baking tray. Put some oil on your hands and press the mixture down firmly to create an even layer.
  6. Refrigerate until firm, this should take about 30 minutes. Once firm, cut into 8 bars.
