Fig, Grape and Walnut Bars
This nutrient-rich energy bar is a delicious treat after a run, as it contains natural sugars and will hydrate you.
I first chop 220g of dried figs (antioxidants and vitamin K). I place them in a food processor with the following ingredients:
- 270g fresh grapes (vitamin C)
- 100g crushed walnuts (manganese and folic acid)
- 10g milled flaxseed (vitamin B6 and Omega-3)
I spread the mixture in a loaf tin and placed it in the freezer for at least an hour. The loaf can then be cut into slices.
The bars are best eaten individually straight from the freezer as they quickly lose their shape due to the high water content.
