Ingredients:

  • 2 Weet-Bix™, crushed
  • 3/4 cup rolled oats
  • 1 cup Sanitarium™ Natural Peanut Butter, smooth or crunchy
  • 1 cup dried pitted dates, diced (150g)
  • 1/4 cup boiling water
  • pinch salt

Method:

  1. In a large bowl, pour boiling water over dates and set aside for 5 minutes until cool. Use a fork to roughly mash dates and liquid to a paste.
  2. Add peanut butter to dates and stir well. Add Weet-Bix and oats, stir again until mixture comes together into a dough.
  3. Line base and two sides of a 20cm tin with a strip of baking paper. Press mixture into pan. Refrigerate for 1 hour.
  4. Remove from pan and cut into 36 squares (6 x 6). Store in fridge or freezer.

Tips:

  • Dough can also be rolled into balls, rather than cut into bites, if preferred.
  • Fresh medjool dates can be used in place of dried dates, remember to remove pits.
