1. In our large food processor bowl, pulse the nuts until finely ground (but stop before they start turning to nut butter!).
2. Add the oats, raisins, chia seeds, cinnamon and nutmeg to the nuts; pulse five (1-second) pulses to combine.
3. Add the peanut butter, honey and vanilla to the mixture; pulse until all of the ingredients are well blended, scraping the sides of the bowl as necessary.
4. Scrape the mixture into our Durane Speckled Square Roaster 22 x 22cm; firmly press into an even layer.
5. Cover and chill for two hours or until firm.
6. Use a knife to slice into bars.
7. Store leftovers in an airtight container in the refrigerator.


These Energy Bars are no-bake and do not harden. Keeping them chilled will firm them up, but they must be stored in and served from the fridge. They are not intended to be portable.
