Recipe: Vegan Granola Bars

Here's how to make Vegan Granola Bars within 15 minutes, so that you always have a snack with you.

What you need

  • mixing bowl
  • cooking pot
  • a spoon
  • baking dish (20 x 20cm)
  • baking paper (or aluminium foil)
  • knife
  • chopping board


  • rolled oats (120g)
  • pitted dates (deglet nour or medjool, 150g)
  • roasted, unsalted almonds (100g)
  • creamy peanut butter (80g)
  • agave nectar (100g)


Step 1

Chop the dates and prepare the mixing bowl

Chop dates into small pieces, then add to your mixing bowl with the almonds and rolled oats.

Step 2

Warm up agave syrup and peanut butter

Place peanut butter and the agave syrup in your cooking pot and heat over low/medium heat. You should constantly stir the mixture otherwise it will stick to the bottom. After 1 minute, remove from heat, pour over the dry ingredients and mix it. Make sure to disperse the dates, otherwise the mixture won't stick together later on.

Step 3

Put in the fridge

Once mixture is combined, line a baking dish with baking paper (or aluminium foil). Spoon mixture into baking dish and flatten with your palm until the mixture forms a thin layer. Cover and place in the fridge for 20 minute.

Step 4

Cut into pieces

Take it out of the fridge and put it on the chopping board. Then cut it into pieces. Now you have a quick work or school snack for when you're on the go!
