Anyone for some Spring Energy?

We’re back from our ski holiday and after all the snow fun, I’m ready for Spring!
Only it’s the end of February and probably a little early, but I’m bursting with energy. Maybe I could start with the spring cleaning?
But before I get started, here’s some spring energy (bars) for you…

The Ingredients
200g/ 1cup nuts (Hazelnuts,almonds,cashew nuts or any other you like)
200g/ 1cup oats
200g/ 1cup dried fruits (apricots, figs, cranberries, like above))
130g/ 0.5cup butter
120g/ 0.5cup honey
2 egg whites

Preheat the oven at 175°C/ 347°F. Chop up the nuts and roast until golden in a pan (without oil or butter). Chop up the fruit while the nuts cool down. Melt the butter with the honey and whip the egg whites. Mix it all together (add the egg last). Place into a baking tray, make sure it is a compact rectangle. Bake for about 25 minutes. Leave to cool for at least 10 minutes and then cut into bars. (If you’re not patient enough to wait for the 10 minutes, you’ll end up with granola, like I did with my first batch)

When cooled (at last) and cut into bars, you can store them in a biscuit tin for about two weeks. (If they last that long)

These two aren’t quite sure if it’s Spring yet…
Spring in the air? Spring cleaning?  Or hibernation?

  1. I hope you had a great time skiing! I know what you mean though, I cannot wait for spring to come! And these bars look like the perfect treat to have to forget about the long winter! I love your photos, you take some amazing shots! Monica x

  2. These look so good! My attempt will probably end up as granola though. I can never, ever resist freshly baked oat bars straight out of the oven.

    Looks like you beat me to the punch. I have “grab and glow” bars coming out in a couple of days that look mighty similar to what you have here. Thanks for visiting my blog and being so supportive. I have an extra special treat coming out very soon that you may like: easy to make “real” vegan white chocolate.

    These sound great, how well do they hold together? My energy bars always end up to crumbley trying not to add too much honey or syrup!

  6. Yum! We have something similar we make that is Indian.
    Energy bars are the best! You are full for so long afterwards and it is nice to know what you are eating is good for you!
