  • 1 cup dates, pitted (soaked in warm water for 15-20 minutes)

🎉 Let's Get Cooking:

  1. Prepare Your Ingredients:

    • Start by soaking the dates in warm water to soften them for about 15-20 minutes. Once softened, drain the water.
  2. Blitz It Up:

    • In a food processor, combine the soaked dates and coconut oil (or ghee) and blend until you get a smooth, sticky paste.
  3. Mix and Match:

    • In a large mixing bowl, combine the dry ingredients - rolled oats, rice flakes, mixed seeds, mixed dry fruits, and matcha powder.
  4. The Binding Agent:

    • Add the date paste to the dry ingredients and mix well until everything is evenly combined. The stickiness of the date paste will help bind the mixture.

  5. Get Your Hands Dirty:

    • If the mixture isn’t sticking together, add a little more coconut oil or a drizzle of honey until you achieve a dough-like consistency.
  6. Press and Set:

    • Line a baking dish with parchment paper and transfer the mixture into the dish. Press it down firmly and evenly to create a compact layer.

  7. Chill Out:

    • Place the dish in the refrigerator for at least 2-3 hours, or until the mixture has set and become firm.
  8. Slice and Serve:

    • Once set, remove from the refrigerator, slice into bars, and enjoy your Matcha Magic Energy Bars whenever you need a boost of energy!

🍵 Tips and Alternatives:

  • Customize Your Bars: Feel free to experiment with other nuts, seeds, or dried fruits you have on hand.

  • Alternate Sweeteners: If you're not a fan of dates, you can use maple syrup, agave syrup, or any other sweetener of your choice.

  • Vegan-Friendly: To make this recipe vegan, substitute coconut oil for ghee.

  • Play with Flavors: Add a teaspoon of vanilla extract or a sprinkle of cinnamon for an extra flavor punch.
