No-Bake Cereal Date Bars Recipe
🔪Prep Time: 20 minutes
👩🍳Cook Time: 15 minutes
2 cups granola cereal
2 tablespoons flaxseed meal
2 tablespoons protein powder
½ cup peanuts, chopped
½ cup dates, chopped small
½ cup almond butter
½ cup brown rice syrup
¼ cup maple syrup
1Line an 8-inch square baking dish with parchment paper and come up about 3 inches on opposite sides. This will act as a handle to remove the bars from the pan.
2Combine the cereal, flaxseed meal, protein powder, peanuts, and dates in a large bowl.
3In a small saucepan, add the almond butter and both syrups. Bring to a boil and cook to the hard ball stage, 260°F, on a candy thermometer. Quickly stir into the cereal mixture and then spread into the prepared dish. It will cool quickly, so you can use your fingertips to press down into the dish as evenly as possible. Refrigerate for at least 30 minutes.
4Grab the “handles” of the parchment paper and lift out of the dish. Place on a cutting board and slice into sixteen squares.

Earth of Maria
I’ve never been good at introductions because when they’re needed, I seem to forget every single interesting thing about myself. But I guess we’ll start with the basics. My name is Maria, and I am a twenty year old student from England. I study history at the University of Oxford and live in Brighton, but I was born in Russia and moved to the UK around ten years ago. I’m a vegan foodie (as you can probably tell by this blog), a lover of long walks and somewhere awkwardly between extrovert and introvert. Veganism and healthy eating are a huge part of my life, given that both have helped me overcome an unhealthy relationship with food. Finding balance took a lot of time and patience. But, as with many things in life, hard work proved 110% worth it! Whenever I’m not in the kitchen or working in my room, you’ll often find me at the gym, or at the grocery store looking for inspo for my next recipe.
