  • 160 g Almonds, roughly chopped
  • 40 g Chia seeds
  • 70 g Pitted dried dates, finely chopped
  1. Preheat oven to 180C/350F. Place the coconut oil, honey and sugar in a small saucepan over low heat and cook, stirring, for 3–4 minutes or until melted and combined.
  2. Pour into a large bowl and add the oats, coconut, bee pollen, almonds, chia seeds, dates and cinnamon and mix well to combine.
  3. Spoon into a lightly greased 20cm x 30cm baking pan lined with non-stick baking paper. Flatten the mixture using the back of a spoon. Bake for 25 minutes or until dark golden. Set aside to cool completely. Lift the slice from the pan and cut into bars to serve. | © 2016 | | © 2016 | | © 2016 |

Oh my..fantastic! What a great idea to add bee pollen.. a real superfood. I just saw it at an organic health shop and I was tempted to buy it. My grandad used to have bees and I had pollen all the time when I was growing up. So good for you.
Lovely recipe Angie.

Vicki Bensinger 14/7/16 18:19

I love this Angie. I'm going to be making some granola bars today as well but love the sound of the bee pollen. I've never used that before. I wonder if those allergic to bees would have a reaction? I would imagine they would. I'll have to check that out. Great recipe and perfect for summer hikes.

these look perfect for taking on a car trip or hike! you've turned very interesting ingredients into a very appealing bar!

Evelyne CulturEatz 14/7/16 19:53

And I was just in the mood lately to make bars again, muesli is a great choice and I have an excuse to take out my bee pollen!

Angie Schneider 14/7/16 20:21

@Vicki BensingerYes, if you are allergic to honey or bees, then bee pollen won't be good.

noobcook 22/7/16 08:49

Sophie's Foodie files 23/7/16 09:52

Waw, a truly adapted recipe of Donna hay! I made the original bars & now, I am loving the look of your tasty bars with bee pollen,...that is a tasty idea.

I happen to have bee pollen in the house & usually only use it in smoothies & in oat porridge with strawberries! These bars look utterly tasty too! xxx

Anca 23/7/16 10:51

The bars must be delicious and they are so healthy with pollen and chia. I should try the recipe.

Anne@ASaladForAllSeasons 26/7/16 16:10

These look absolutely delicious, Angie! I love eating healthy, fruity, grain filled bars like this. Such a perfect pick me up in the middle of the day. But I also like to have one in the morning with my yogurt. These are perfect! :)

Smitha 26/7/16 16:32

cute looking bars are great for travel and snacking. I loved the way you packed them into small picks

tigerfish 28/7/16 05:53

I started making oat-bars at home recently and really like the idea of having these convenient homemade bars on-the-go. Usually I skip the wet process and instead use quick-cook oats or fine oats (oat bran) with a little water plus peanut butter as the "binding" agent. I also skip the baking step, and just "set" the mixture in the fridge. Of course, they(my homemade bars) don't turn out as beautiful and perfect as yours.

Catherine 29/7/16 12:58

Dear Angie, what a healthy and delightful treat. These sound wonderful. xo, Catherine

Muna Kenny 2/8/16 03:08

How I wish I could grab at least one, so yummy Angie :)

Roz Corieri Paige 5/8/16 20:37

Angie, my neighbor is a bee-keeper and maybe I can get some bee pollen from him to make these incredible bars. Perfect for my long commute to work and back!

Mindy Boyd 14/9/16 00:35

I have never heard of using bee pollen before. You have enlightened me. Thanks!
