Vegan Recipe: Energy Bars

We all get a little peckish at times throughout the day so we thought we'd share a recipe for a little afternoon pick-me up to keep your energy levels up as they dip before the end of the working day. These yummy morsels are vegan, gluten-free and dairy-free to boot; what's not to like!



200g pecans

150g dried apricots

150g dates

1/2tsp cinnamon

1/2 tsp vanilla

25g tahini

40g buckwheat flour (or alternative should you prefer)



  1. Blitz the pecan nuts in a food processor
  2. Add the remaining ingredients and pulse in the food processor until well combined
  3. Once a dough-like texture forms, remove and flatten into a square mould
  4. Chill and cut in to 9 pieces
  5. Enjoy with a nice cup of tea (lemon and ginger seems to be the TTC favourite at the moment - yum!)
