No-bake energy nut bars

Energy bars are wonderful. They´re so practical to have by hand and they tastes pure deliciousness. All you need to do to make these treats is to basically throw together the simple ingredients and place it in the freezer and voila, you now have the most delicious, sweet and crunchy raw energy bars in the world! Give it a try. You´ll love them!

Makes 12 bars

1 cup almonds
1/2 cup macadamia nuts
1 cup dates (about 15 dates)
1/3 cup raisins
1/4 cup water
3 tbsps coconut oil, melted
2/3 cup large oats
3 tbsps pumpkin seeds
2 tbsps chia seeds

Pulse the almonds and macadamia nuts in a food processor five times until they are relatively well chopped, but it´s still able to see smaller and larger nut pieces. Add dates, water and coconut oil and mix once again until the mixture binds well. Place the mixture into a large mixing bowl and add the pumpkin seeds, oats and the chia seeds. Give it a good stir. Place a sheet of baking paper onto a rectangular middle-sized tin form and have the mixture on top. Spread it out and place it in the freezer for half an hour. Take it out and cut it into bars. I like to melt a tablespoon of coconut oil and a tablespoon of peanut butter and drizzle that on top, but you can choose any topping you want or just leave it as delicious as it is on itself! You can store the bars in the fridge for up to two weeks.
