Oaty Apple, Chia and Date Bites

I love Haribo, like really love Haribo and when I’m training they are like my little treat. However, that kind of energy isn’t the type of energy I should be consuming on a regular basis. Instead I like to make my own energy based snacks to keep in the fridge or my handbag when I need them.  I’m always trying to make new varieties and this is my most recent.

Oaty Apple, Chia and Date Bites

Ingredients (Makes 15)

  • 150g rapeseed oil
  • 5 tbsp date syrup (I used Beloved)
  • 225g oats
  • 3 tbsp chia seeds
  • 200g applesauce
  • 100g dates, chopped
  • 2 tbsp roasted almonds
  • 50g dark chocolate


  1. Preheat oven to 180C.
  2. Melt the oil and the syrup together in a pan over low heat. Stir in the oats, chia seeds, apple sauce and dates. Spread the mixture onto a lined baking tray.
  3. Bake for 15-20 minutes until knife comes out clean. Allow to cool and cut into squares.
  4. Melt the chocolate and drizzle over bars. Decorate with roasted almonds

These will keep in the fridge for at least a week. I really like them served with Salted Caramel Oppo ice cream
