Regular readers of my blog may remember that having received 12 free jars of Sun-Pat peanut butter, that I promised to share an energy boosting breakfast bar recipe. Well, here it is. Nice and healthy before we hit the excesses of the festive season.
Peanut Butter and Date Breakfast Bars
Ingredients (makes 9)
150g Sun-Pat peanut butter
10g chia seeds
About 200ml boiling water
1 tsp bicarbonate of soda
Preheat fan oven to 180 deg C.
Line a 20cm square baking tin with greaseproof paper.
Chop dates and place in basin.
Add bicarbonate of soda.
Add sufficient boiling water to cover.
Leave for 15 minutes, then strain, reserving the liquid.
Place peanut butter in mixing bowl.
Add chia seeds and linseeds.
Mix in oats along with 2 tbsp of the reserved liquid from the dates.
Put mixture into the tin, pressing down into the corners.
Cook in preheated oven for about 25 minutes until golden brown.
Leave in tin for 10 minutes, then turn onto cooling rack.
Once cool, cut into 9 squares.
Serve and enjoy.
Delicious and just what we needed for a quick energy boost ready for parkrun. And it must have done the trick, as son1 achieved a personal best for his run today.

Yum! I usually just put it in cakes and cheesecakes; I’m yet to develop confidence with energy bars, though I have attempted them in the past. I love the combination of peanut butter and dates, that sounds really tasty!
I haven’t tried it in either a cake or cheesecake. Will have to give those a try
