Day of DIY # 12.

I haven't had a DIY post in a while so that's what's up for today :) When I was working I made a smoothie in the morning and brought that to work as my second breakfast. I eat breakfast at 6-6.30 and lunch isn't til 12 so I need something in between. I really like smoothies but I wanted something that was easier to bring when school starts so I experimented a little with some kind of bar ;p

I read a little on the web to see how it could be done and bought some dried fruit (no sugar added). Here you can see the ingredients. Hazelnuts, oatmeal, honey, coconut oil, dried figs and apricots, pumpkin-, sunflower- and flax seeds, goji berries, shredded coconut and some oil.

In you go! Mix it up.

Then I spread it out and poured some more shredded coconut on top to make it a bit less sticky. I didn't bake these. Half of what I made went in the fridge and then I put the rest in the freezer (after cutting them into bar-y pieces lol). I had mine in the fridge for several weeks and thought they held up nicely :) No conservatives there! And they taste good :)

Have you tried making your own bars? Next time I want to try making them a bit more salty by adding peanuts :)
