  • For the base
  • 100g rolled oats
  • 3 tbsp cocoa or cacao powder
  • 1 tsp cinnamon
  • 1 banana
  • 3 tbsp peanut butter
  • 3 tbsp maple syrup
  • 1 tsp vanilla extract
  • For the date caramel
  • 150g dates, soaked in hot water for 10 minutes
  • 2 tbsp smooth peanut butter
  • Pinch of salt
  • For the topping
  • 100g crunchy chocolate granola
Prep Time


  1. Preheat the oven to 180 degrees C and grease and line a 20cm loose-bottomed cake tin.

  2. Place the base ingredients into your Ninja Nutri Blender and process until well blended and you have quite a sticky mixture. Spread this across the base of the tin and bake for 15 minutes.

  3. Meanwhile place the soaked dates and 4 tablespoons of the water plus peanut butter and salt into the blender and whizz up until you have a smooth, thick caramel.

  4. Bring the tin out of the oven, spread over the caramel in a generous layer to cover, and sprinkle over the granola to cover. Press in lightly so it sticks into the caramel.

  5. Return to the oven for a further 5-10 minutes then leave to cool completely in the tin. Gently remove and cut into 6-8 slabs and enjoy!

My love of healthy food was originally inspired by my commitment to fitness and wellbeing. But that's not to say I don't like a treat from time to time. It was when I started looking for healthy treats that still satisfied my sweet tooth that I realised how little there was to choose from. Despite being labelled 'healthy', many of the recipes I came across relied heavily on processed sugar and fat - which is why I decided to take matters into my own hands.
