Leslies 'on the run' snack bars


Fig & dark chocolate snack bars



We all love a date, but in this recipe we decided to give them a wee break and add in a fig or two.


200 grams dried figs

140 grams sunflower seeds

50 grams oats

1 tbsp coconut oil, or walnut oil or hazelnut oil

2 tbsp dark chocolate sprinkles

1 tsp cinnamon

¼ tsp nutmeg

Pinch of salt

Dark chocolate, for topping


Soak the figs in hot water for 30-60 mins, until soft. Drain and lightly squeeze the figs to release any excess water.

Blend (in a food processor) the sunflower seeds and oats for 30 seconds approx. Add the figs, spices, chocolate sprinkles and oil and blend until it forms a ball of dough.

Line a small square tin with parchment paper. Press the dough into the tin, firmly and as evenly as possible. Place in freezer for approx. 1 hr until it has set. Remove and drizzle with the melted dark chocolate. Cut into desired size squares. Store in fridge or airtight container.


"You only need to spend a few minutes with Kerry to feel how passionate and dedicated she is to sport and running in particular. Her ultra marathon successes are an inspiration. I’d be happy to recommend her".
