Homemade Energy Bars

Publish Date: December 03, 2015

Line a 9x5 loaf pan with plastic wrap and lightly coat with non-stick spray or oil of choice.

To soften dates and other fruits, combine with water in a small bowl and let stand for 5-10 minutes. Skip this step if your fruit is already soft.

In a food processor, add nuts and pulse until finely chopped, but not a paste. Drain the softened fruit from water. Add fruit and remaining ingredients to the food processor. Pulse for about 2 minutes, until fruit is finely chopped and the mixture starts to stick together.

Transfer mixture to prepared pan. To flatten the mixture into the pan, spray a piece of plastic wrap or parchment paper with nonstick spray, and use it to spread mixture evenly. Leave bars covered and refrigerate for 30 minutes.

Lift the plastic wrap from the bottom of the pan to remove bars, and transfer to a cutting board. Uncover and cut into 6 even bars.

Enjoy immediately or wrap each bar in plastic wrap. Bars will keep for 3 days at room temperature, or for up to 3 weeks in the fridge.

Each of the above recipes makes 6 bars.

Makes 6 servings. Serving size 1.0bar.
