Preparation time: 15 minutes

Cooking time: 25 minutes

  • 1/2 cup (125ml) of organic Medjool dates
  • 1/4 cup (62.5ml) of water
  • 1 cup (250ml) of organic organic rolled oat
  • 1  1/2 cup (375ml) of organic quick oat flakes
  • 1/2 cup (125ml) of organic walnuts
  • 1/2 cup (125ml) of organic hemp seeds
  • 1/2 cup (125ml) of organic sultana raisins
  • 1/2 cup (125ml) of organic shredded coconut
  • 1/2 cup (125ml) of organic chocolate chips
  • 1/3 cup (83ml) of organic whole brown sugar
  • 1/3 cup (83ml) of organic melted vegan butter
  • 1/3 cup (83ml) of organic sunflower butter
  • 2tsp. (10ml) of vanilla
  1. Preheat you oven to 375º.
  2. In a small pot, make you dates puree by cooking your dates in the water. It takes about 5 minutes until it’s really smooth.
  3. In a medium bowl combine the oat flakes, the brown sugar, the walnuts, the raisins, the hemp seeds, the coconut and the chocolate chips.
  4. In a small bowl, mix the dates puree, the melted butter, the sunflower butter and the vanilla together.
  5. Put together the oat mix with the butter mix until it’s all well blended.
  6. In a 9″x13″ oven dish, spread your mix and gently press with your hands to make it even.
  7. Cook it in the oven for about 25 minutes or until golden.
  8. When you remove it from the oven, let it cool completely before you take it out of your dish. If it’s hot, it won’t hold and instead of bars, you’ll get granola cereals. 🙂

What do our readers say about this recipe?

“This was a big hit at my house! My family ate it as a snack the next day and the week after as a dessert with fruit. Great recipe! I am so excited to have found this website, you guys have made some great recipes! We will be moving soon and I am sure this website will help me keep my diet on track.”

“As far as granola bars go – these are GOOD. Flavorful – not overly sweet, but definitely sweet enough – stick-to-the-roof of your mouth goodness. Great texture – chewy, crispy and crunchy all at once.”

“I make this recipe all the time! My friends LOVE them, and I’ve made these for bake sales, school parties, etc. without any complaints. The last time I made these was to take to a potluck (an event for homeless and low-income families) at our church and they were a huge hit with everyone there.”

“I made these for my toddlers and we couldn’t stop eating them! When we bought them at the store we would always find that they were all smashed up (and expensive) after coming home from vacation.”

“This is a great recipe! I made these for my husband, who loves granola bars and eats them all the time. I was surprised by how much he liked it! These are wonderful with a cup of coffee in the morning. They make a great snack, too. I love the fact that they are not full of processed sugar and that they don’t have any grains in them.”

And a little note before I will finally say goodbye y’all: You’re 1 000, no 1 000 000, no 1 000 000 000 times more awesome and nice and excellent than every recipe here. Love you, love you all!
