You see them everywhere, Lara Bars, Cliff Bars, Bounce Balls, Kind Bars…the list is endless. Some are better for you than others and some taste better than others, one thing they all have in common is they cost a fortune! Make your own using my easy recipe and you can change-up the ingredients as you like.
Super Easy & Super Tasty Energy Bars
12 Large Pitted Medjool Dates
1/4 cup Honey
1/2 cup Rolled Oats (whatever kind you prefer)
1/4 cup Mini Chocolate Chips or Cocoa Nibs
1/3 cup Chia Seeds
1 Scoop Chocolate Protein Powder (whatever kind you prefer)
1/2 Cup Wow Butter (safe for school snacks) or 1/3 Cup Natural Peanut Butter
1/4 Cup Unsweetened Coconut (optional)
2 Tbsp Unsweeetned Cocoa Powder (optional)
Place all ingredients into a food processor, (or dough processor option on a blender like the NINJA). Blend on dough setting, scraping down the bowl every few seconds.
One desired consistency is reached, scrape the mixture into a lined baking pan or glass dish which will allow you to shape the mixture into a large square/rectangle.
Shape mixture into a square, with at least a one inch thickness of the mixture or it will be too thin to hold its shape. Put into the fridge and let set for 30 mins to overnight.
Once removed from the fridge, cut into squares or bars.
Wrap up the squares individually to keep fresh and use for lunches or quick energy snacks on the go! Enjoy!
