Sticky Crunchy Natural Bars

I crave for bars all the time right after my workouts. Unfortunately those store bought bars are packed with refined sugars and chemicals  which are bad for health. 
Try these all natural 100% no refined sugar added and it's much more cheaper than the store bought! 
And it's vegan, too!

You'll need :
25-30 medjool dates ( no added sugar )
1 medium size banana
2 cups of oats
1 cup Rice Krispies ( you can sub with one more cup of oats )
1/3 cup of Goji berries ( or any dried berries of your choice )
1/2 cup raw almond ( chopped )
1/2 cup chocolate chips ( omit or sub with more berries or nuts of your choice )
1 tsp cinnamon 
1 scoop of milk powder ( Anlenne or protein powder ) ( or omit )

**you can add some protein powder for protein boost ! 
** can be no bake 

Steps : 

1. Soak the dates in hot water for 5 minutes to soften.
2. Drain the liquid and save some for blending. Remove the seeds from the dates and blend with  banana.
3. Mix all the dry ingredients together and set aside. 
4. Stir in the date paste and mix very well.
*ignore my feet * ><
5. Line 9x9 baking tin with parchment paper, press the mixture FIRMLY AND HARDinto the tin, and bake in a preheated 180°c oven for 20 minutes.
  ** no bake version- lined, PRESS HARD and refrigerate 
6. Let cool to room temperature, and cut into desired slices and serve! 

Firm up even more when it's cooled.
 Make sure you won't get controlled by these bars because they're sooooo addictive! It's sticky, crunchy and sweet!
