Chocolate receives a lot of bad impressions due to its high fat and sugar content & about how it can cause acne, obesity, diabetes However it’s not all bad about chocolate some great benefits get foreshadowed by all of its demerits.

The key ingredients of any chocolate are cocoa and cocoa has various types of minerals that can be beneficial for your health such as copper, calcium, magnesium, zinc, and whatnot. The higher the cocoa content as in Dark chocolate the higher the benefits. Dark chocolate usually contains less sugar and fat comparing to the normal chocolate bar still I would suggest that you take a good look at the label and also check the nutritional value.

4. Melted Chocolate ( 1-2 Chocolate Bar )


Before we start to put the deseeded dates into a bowl of water and soak them for a few minutes while they are busy.

Take a pan and heat it on medium flame, put those 1/2 Cup peanuts into the pan, and roast them.

Take the roasted peanuts out and then take the Cup of oats put them in the pan and roast them.

Now take a grinder and grind the oats till they are in powder form and then empty the grinder jar in the plate and then fill the jar with deseeded oats and add some roasted peanuts with them and grind.

Now nicely mix the grinded oats and the paste that you got after grinding deseeded dates and peanuts to make a dough.

Now if you have a square or rectangular container that would be good, cause that would give it a proper bar-like shape now put foil paper in a container and spread that dough nicely, and garnish them with some left roasted peanuts and let it freeze for about an hour or two, so that will get its firm shape. I would suggest making this at night, so it can stay in the freezer overnight. ( If you like you can throw in some crushed almonds ).

Remove it and then cut them in the shape of a bar and dip them in melted chocolate and put them on a nice plate and freeze them for 20 to 30 minutes or so. (You can garnish it with choco chips, berries, etc.)

Voila !! there you have it, your homemade energy chocolate bars.
