No bake peanut butter and raspberry chocolate snack bars

I love a good no bake recipe! Packed with no nonsense healthy ingredients. A healthy dose of carbs and fats with an added chocolate treat.

I used Oh so good for you raspberry dark chocolate and it is INSANE in this recipe, I mean peanut butter and raspberry is a match made in heaven right!? It also has live cultures in, which is great for gut health!

The main ingredient of this recipe that binds the bars together so there’s no need to bake and has a delicious caramel flavour, is dates! I love big squishy medjool dates because they are much easier to blend. You will need a good high powered food processor to blitz them up into a paste. I would love to get my hands on a Vitamix one day, they look incredible.

After the dates I add peanut butter, I used my favourite crunchy peanut butter from Pics, but you can use any smooth or crunchy brand. I also added a little dose of honey because I just love the flavour and it sweetens the bars up perfectly, but you can use any liquid sweetener of choice like maple syrup or agave.

Finally, I added in rolled oats and sunflower seeds. Sunflower seeds add an amazing texture as well as a healthy dose of B vitamins.
