Hands up if you love Nakd Peanut Bars?
What if I told you, you could recreate them for a fraction of the price in 30 minutes. And all you need is peanuts and dates!
Gluten and fuss free, these bars are completely vegan and require no baking. Literally add soften dates to a food processor with peanuts, press blitz and voila. It literally couldn’t be any easier. They’re the perfect mid-morning, mid-afternoon or pre/post workout snack. And containing natural ingredients, they’re packed with healthy fats. Which our bodies need need need!
You might think dates come at a price, but if you’re from the UK, go to Holland and Barrett and grab yourself these . They’re 99p a pack, and just need to be soaked in boiling water for 10 minutes or so to soften them up, and you’ll be away! Just remember to drain them before you put them in anything (yes i’ve forgotten a few times!)
Keep a batch of these bars in your freezer, and they’ll be your saviour when you need a lil pick me up. Plus they can be eaten straight from the freezer. It literally doesn’t get any easier….
