5 dl/ 1/4 cup creamy salted natural peanut or almons butter
112 g / 1 cup roasted unsalted almonds, loosely chopped
5 dl / 1 1/2 cups quick oats

Mix the dates in a food processor until only small bits remains and it’s a dough consistency.
Heat up the honey and peanut butter in a small pan on low heat. Stir and add the oats, almonds and the dates into it.
When it is all thouroughly mixed, spread it over a small pan covered in plastic wrap.
Press down firmly until its evenly thick, it can help to use a drinking glass to press down and to pack the bars thick, which helps them stick together better.
Cover the pan with plastic wrap and freeze for 15-20 min.
Once the 15-20 min has passed and the bars feel firm you remove them from the pan and chop into good-sized bars.
You can store the bars in the freezer to keep them fresh!
