3 Ingredient Energy Bars

Ingredients

  • 1 c nuts (I like to use almonds)
  • 1 c dried fruit (I like no sugar added cranberries)
  • 1 c pitted dates
  • any optional add-ins: chocolate chips, chia seeds, shredded coconut, cherries, cinnamon, protein powder, cocoa powder, almond (or other nut) butter, etc

Directions

  1. Combine nuts, dried fruit, and dates in a food processor, pulsing a few times first, then for 1-2 minutes until a ball forms.  (Scrape down sides as needed.)
  2. Mix in any optional ingredients either by hand (if you want them to remain chunky) or with the food processor.
  3. Place ball of ‘dough’ onto wax paper and using your hands, press into a square (about 8×8).
  4. Wrap and chill for at least an hour.
  5. Cut into smaller squares as desired and store separated by small pieces of wax paper (so they don’t stick together).
  6. Eat and enjoy!
