3 Jun

Make the delicious energy bars from Escape to the Farm, perfect to keep you going on a long day.

Makes about 12 small bars


  • 120g oats
  • ½ tsp ground cinnamon
  • 40g soft brown sugar
  • ½ chopped apple
  • 5 chopped medjool dates
  • 60g raisins or sultanas
  • 20g dried cranberries
  • 35g melted coconut oil
  • 1 tbsp flaked almonds


  1. Preheat oven to 180°C/ gas 4
  2. Put half the oats and all of the other ingredient, except for the coconut oil and flaked almonds into the food processor – pulse until it forms lumps.
  3. Add the remaining oats and the coconut oil and pulse again to just mix them in.
  4. Put into a lined 1lb loaf tin and press down well, compacting it as much as possible.
  5. Sprinkle the almonds on top and press until they stick
  6. Bake for 10 minutes.
  7. Remove from the oven and allow to cool for 5 minutes in the tin
  8. Cover with baking parchment and weight it down (a second tin with a bag of sugar in it is perfect)
  9. Once cool, place in the fridge overnight.
  10. Cut into slices, then fingers. Either wrap individually, or layer in a container with baking paper between layers.
  11. These are great to have in the freezer, as they defrost very quickly in your pocket, or they last about 5 days fresh.
