Berry and Walnut Energy Bars

Weaning myself off the Christmas chocolate! Think my body will go into shock if I suddenly withdraw it completely. These energy bars are full of healthy fats, crunchy nuts, fruity berry goodness and just the tiniest bit of dark chocolate.

Great as an on the go breakfast or a post work out snack.


100g butter

200g porridge oats

50g walnuts

3 tablespoons honey

100g light soft brown sugar

50g blueberries

50g cranberries

50g dark chocolate – snapped into small pieces


Pre heat oven to 170C / 150C fan

Grease and line your baking tin. I use a 28 x 19cm tin.

Mix to combine your oats, walnuts, berries and chocolate.

Warm your butter, honey and sugar in a pan over a low heat, stirring until fully melted.

Add the oat, nut, berry and chocolate mix, making sure all the ingredients are coated in the buttery liquid.

Transfer to your baking tin, press down to flatten and bake in the centre of the oven for 25 minutes.

Allow to cool but while still slightly warm transfer to a work surface and cut into 12 portions.

Eat one and feel gloriously full of energy.
