Breakfast Bar

These bars are quick to throw together, and are perfect for a bite on-the-go!

Soften the dates by soaking in some water water for about 15 minutes. Then use a knife to cut them in half to remove the pit. Finely chop dates by hand, or place in a food processor.

Once the wet and dry ingredients are mixed together, spread it out into parchment lined pan and press down firmly. Once chilled, remove from pan and cut into squares. If desired, melt some chocolate and place in a small plastic bag. Snip the corner of one end and drizzle over squares.

**TIP – So you don’t waste any leftover chocolate in the bag, place what’s left in the freezer. Once its solid turn the bag inside out and every bit of the chocolate will cleanly come out and you’ll be able to save it for another time!

      In North America, thanks to the new labeling laws passed a few years ago, all food products that are labelled ‘gluten free’ will indeed be gluten free. Off the top of my head…Chex and Rice Krispies both have gluten free cereals. Here is one of our articles with more information on malt: “Is Barely (or Malt) Gluten Free”.
