Barre Menu: Energy Bars
This is one of our favourite grab and go snacks when we are running out the door on the way to barre! We found this gem @ Paleo Grubs, you can find the original link to this recipe and others by clicking here! Store bought energy bars can certainly get pricey, so why not try to make your own! The best thing about this recipe is that they are super easy to make and the perfect healthy option for that sweet tooth of yours. These bars are gluten free and can be made vegan by substituting the chocolate chips for raw cacao nibs. YUM!
1 cup almonds
1 cup dried cranberries
1 cup pitted dates
1 tbsp unsweetened coconut flakes
1/4 cup mini dark chocolate chips
Combine all of the ingredients in a blender or food processor. Pulse a few times to break everything up. Then blend continuously until the ingredients have broken down and start to clump together into a ball.
Using a spatula to scrape down the sides, turn out the mixture onto a piece of wax paper or plastic wrap. Press into an even square and chill, wrapped, for at least an hour. Cut into desired size of bars, wrapping each bar in plastic wrap to store in the fridge.
