This fruity energy bar recipe is not only simple to make but it's also packed full of fruit and made with Truvia so you can enjoy a sweet treat without the guilt!  

Method

  1. Preheat the oven to 190°C (fan 170°C, gas mark 5). Grease and line a shallow 17.5cm-square tin with baking paper.

  2. Peel, core and slice the apple and toss with the Truvia®. Place in a medium pan with 2 tsp water.

    • 1 Bramley Apple
    • 2 tsp Truvia Granulated Sweetener
    • 2 tsp Water
  3. Cover the pan and put it on the hob over a medium heat. Simmer for 4 minutes, stir and cook for a further 1-2 minutes or until the apple is beginning to become fluffy (you could also do this in the microwave). Leave to cool for 5 minutes.

  4. Put the dates and juice in a food processor and whizz until smooth. Add the stewed apple and whiz for a further 5 seconds.

    • 150g Dried Dates (Stoned)
  5. Melt the butter in a large pan over a low heat. Add the date purée and all of the other ingredients except the sesame seeds.

    • 150g Unsalted Butter
    • 3 tbsp Orange or Apple Juice
    • 30g Mixed Nuts (Roughly Chopped)
    • 150g Dried Mixed Fruits
    • 150g Porridge Oats
    • 150g Oatmeal
  6. Stir well, then press into the tin, sprinkle with the sesame seeds and press with the back of a spoon.  Bake for 20-25 minutes, or until just golden.

    • 1½ tsp Sesame Seeds
  7. Remove from the oven and cool for 10 minutes. Cut into slices in the tin. Cool completely before turning out and cutting into slices.
