I am so excited to share this new recipe that does not require baking, needs only 6 simple ingredients, takes only 10 minutes to prepare and is gluten-free, dairy-free with no sugar added!
Purchasing energy bars at the store can get expensive… and they don’t come in fun shapes!
These bars can be made for any holiday using cookie cutters or simply sliced into squares for every day enjoyment!
- 1 cup pitted dates (chopped)
- 1 cup almonds
- 1 tsp vanilla extract
- ¼ cup coconut
- 2 cups oats
- ½ cup honey
Simply place all of the above ingredients in a food processor.
Blend for 30-60 seconds or until a sticky ball forms.
Place the oat mixture on wax or parchment paper. (I found parchment paper worked better, less sticking!)
Press the mixture into a thin layer using your hands, or use a rolling pin to flatten the mixture.
Simply use cookie cutters to cut into desired shapes, or slice into squares with a knife.
Voila! A healthy Easter snack was just made in 10 minutes!
These are perfect to take for lunch or a mid-morning snack, eat for breakfast or even serve as a healthy dessert!
Dates are known as “nature’s candy” and produce a delicious natural sweetness! They are also a good source of fiber and vitamins!
The almonds help lower bad cholesterol and build strong bones and teeth, while the oats provide energy, nutrients and more fiber!
Who knew that such a cute little Bunny bar could pack so many health benefits!
