Homemade Energy Bars

 

 

A friend of mine gave me this receipe the other day and I picked up the ingriedients from the store . As soon as I got home I made up a batch of these delicious Paleo bars. Perfect for long rides or runs or for the weight room.

These will add 10 lbs to your dead lift no problem.

Ingredients for Energy Bar
1/3 cup dark chocolate cocoa powder, (optional: regular cocoa powder)
1.5 cups pitted dates
1/3 cup ground flax seed
1 teaspoon cinnamon
1/2 cup unsalted almonds
1/2 cup unsalted walnuts
1 teaspoon vanilla extract
1/2 cup dried cranberries, optional: goji berries, dried cherries
1-2 tablespoon coconut oil

Instructions for Energy Bars/Balls
Put your pitted dates in the food processor and puree until they’re smooth.
Add coconut oil, cocoa powder, cinnamon, flax seed, and vanilla. Pulse a few times until they’re combined.
Add almonds and walnuts and pulse again. Depending on how fine you want the texture of the nuts, be careful not to pulse too many times.
Stir in dried cranberries.
Transfer the date mixture to a pan lined with wax paper. Press the mixture down with a large wooden spoon until they’re about half an inch thick. Cover with Saran wrap and chill in refrigerator until they’re hard. Cut into squares
