  3. In a saucepan, heat the honey, butter and brown sugar together till the sugar is completely dissolved and the mix starts to bubble.
  4. Working quickly, pour the syrup mix into the bowl over the dried ingredients. Make sure everything is coated in the syrup.
  5. Lightly grease a baking pan and pour the mix into the pan. Using the back of a spoon or a spatula, flatten the mix down into the pan.Homemade Energy Bar Chilled
  6. Leave in the fridge overnight to set.
  7. Once set, flip the pan upside down over a chopping board and cut into bars.

These bars are small but filling and they slowly release energy thanks to the oats and all bran. Perfect if I’m having a particularly busy day running about the place and need to keep my energy levels up. They’re great on hikes and for that extra boost before a session in the gym. I absolutely love them and they’re so unbelievably easy to make.
