I think of these tropical energy bars from Leroy Roots as my sunrise energy bars as they are the perfect healthy morning snack for work or school to make you smile.

Though they are also very good after a workout session at the gym. Plus they are just so easy to make, and they will keep for a few days.


1 tsp  sunflower oil
60g dried mango
75g rolled porridge oats
25g plain flour
50g dark muscovado sugar
1 tsp cinnamon
50g shelled, unsalted pistachios
50g pecans
50g dates
60g dried apricots
really good grating of nutmeg
2 large eggs
100g maple syrup
2 tbsp pumpkin seeds


  1. Pre-heat the oven to gas mark 4, 180°C or 350°F.  Lightly brush a 25cm x 25cm cake tin with oil. Soak the mango in warm water for 30 minutes.
  2. Drain the mango and put it in a food processor with all the other ingredients except for the eggs, maple syrup and pumpkin seeds. Pulse until finely chopped, do not over do it.
  3. Put the mixture in a bowl and add the eggs, maple syrup and pumpkin seeds and mix together.
  4. Transfer to your cake tin and spread out evenly.
  5. Bake in the oven for 20-25 minutes until light brown.
  6. Leave to cool then cut into squares and store in an airtight tin. These sunrise energy bars will keep for 3 days.
