Ever feel like you need a little pick me up that’s vegan and is full of goodness? Well, this recipe by @SpamellaB could be the one for you. She has used our Avocado Oil as one of the ingredients to make these Spiced Carrot Energy Bars, that are super easy to make and, we are told, are super tasty too
Make them yourself with the recipe below:
2 tablespoons almond butter
2 tablespoons maple syrup
2 tablespoons Mokhado Avocado Oil
2 carrots, grated
80g walnuts, cut into pieces
50g pumpkin seeds
50g raisins or sultanas
3 teaspoons cinnamon
2 teaspoons ginger
1 teaspoon turmeric
Preheat the oven to 180 degrees C and grease and line a 9×9 in baking tin.
Place the dates in a pan with 200ml water and bring to the boil. Simmer for 10 minutes to allow to soften then set aside to cool a little.
Add the dates to a blender with the almond butter, avocado oil and maple syrup and blend to form a thick paste.
Mix together the oats, carrots, nuts, seeds, raisins/sultanas and spices in a large bowl. Add the date paste mixture and mix thoroughly to combine.
Spread the mixture out into the tin with a spoon. Bake for 25 minutes until golden and firm. Leave to cool in the tin for at least 10 minutes then cut into 9-12 pieces.
We hope you enjoy this easy and tasty recipe by @SpamellaB. Don’t forget to use #MokhadoRecipes if you use our oils in one of your recipes
