To follow on from our savoury snack recipes, this week we look at something for your sweet tooth. For a treat, try these recipes at home. Both are packed with energy boosting nuts and neither use refined sugar for sweetness.


For a home made sweet treat, why not make your own granola?

175g mixed nuts
450g rolled oats
50g sesame seeds
50g sunflower seeds
125ml sunflower oil
100ml honey


Preheat your oven to 190c (170c for fan ovens).

While waiting for the oven to heat, mix your seeds, nuts and oil together and add a pinch of salt. Stir in the honey, making sure there are no large clumps in the mixture.

Pour the mix onto a non stick baking tray and bake for 20-25 minutes. Stir twice during the baking time, pulling the mixture in from the edges.

Cook until golden, then transfer to a bowl to cool.

Serve with generous helpings of yoghurt and fruit of your choice. Try some energy boosting ingredients like bananas. The honey can be substituted for the honey of you choice; try acacia or manuka honey.


Fruit and Nut Energy Bars

A no bake recipe!

175g pitted medjool dates
175g dried apricots
160g almonds


Put all of the ingredients into a food processor and pulse a few times, to begin. Then blend until the ingredients are a relatively smooth mixture.

During blending, you will need to stop and regularly stir the mixture to stop the ingredients from clumping.

Once the mixture is smooth, remove from the food processor and spread the mixture across grease proof paper until it is around 1cm deep.

Leave this to chill in the fridge for at least an hour, then cut into slices and enjoy!

Try as many variations on this recipe as you like with different nuts and dried fruits.

  • “I have been using the Kokoon Headphones for over a year now nearly daily. Initially, I bought them as a way to help me sleep as I was suffering from insomnia during a rather stressful period of my life. They worked like a charm and from day one (or shall I say night one!) I was able to fall asleep within minutes. Since then I have been using them a lot as high-end headphones for their excellent noise-cancellation ability. I have tested different types of music and sounds and I discovered what works for me in different circumstances i.e. when I want to fall asleep, just relax, or be energized in the gym.⠀
So today, my Kokoon Headphones together with my smartphone are my life's companions!” – Vassilis S on Highya⠀
