- Packed deseeded dates: 1 cup
- Gluten free rolled oats: 1 and 1/4 cups
- Almonds: 1/2 cup
- Honey: 1/4 cup

Step 1 :
For Almond Butter
Roast 1/2 cup of almonds for 3 minutes in a pan till they are golden brown, and then blend them in a high-speed mixer till a paste form.
Step 2 :
For Breakfast Bars
Blend the dates together so that they form a ball. You may need to add a teaspoon of water in case your dates are too hard. Roast the oats and mixed nuts for 2 minutes till they are toasted. Let the breakfast bars cool down, so you can store them in the same bowl as the blended dates.
Step 3 :
Measure out 1/4 cup of almond butter and mix it in with honey, salt and the date/oat mixture. After mixing all the ingredients thoroughly.
In a parchment paper-lined tin (8”X8”) take the mixture and press it down firmly on the parchment paper until it is even and flat. Cover with more parchment paper and let it become firm in the fridge for about 20 minutes. Once it’s firm, remove from it the pan and cut them into bar-shaped pieces. Store in an airtight container for up to one week.
