These no-bake energy bars are the perfect way to curb those "hangry" cravings.

// RECIPE //

INGREDIENTS:

  • 1 cup pitted, chopped dates
  • 1 cup nuts
  • 1 cup raisins
  • 2 tablespoons chia seeds

DIRECTIONS:

  • Place all ingredients in a food processor and mix until a ball forms – approx. 4-6 minutes.
  • Place date ball between 2 sheets of parchment paper and roll out evenly to a 9” x 9” square.
  • Refrigerate for 2 hours
  • Cut into squares (1 ½” x 1 ½”) 

*Dates act as a binding agent. Pick the freshest stickiest dates possible for best results

**Use whatever nuts you prefer – skinless almonds, cashews, or hazelnuts. You can also use sunflower seeds, pumpkin seeds or a mix of your favorite nuts and seeds. Just make sure the combination you use equals 1 cup.

***Raisins are good, but mix it up if you like. We tried raisins, dried cranberries and dried blueberries and the mix was good! Again, just make sure it equals 1 Cup. Other ideas: sultans, goji berries, dried figs or apricots.

After cutting bars/squares, keep refrigerated in an air tight container for up to 3 weeks.
