These raw fruit and nut bars are quick and full of wholesome ingredients. They’re the perfect snack to keep with you throughout the day to eat when you’re feeling hungry or need a burst of energy. The thing I love about them is that they are pretty fool-proof, meaning they’re hard to mess up! You can easily substitute many of the ingredients with ones you may already have on hand. Kind of like a clean-out-the-pantry bar!
The only thing you really have to do to make these work is to get the right ratio of wet to dry ingredients. I use dried figs, coconut oil, and some maple syrup to bind together the almonds, coconut, flaxseed, chia seed, pumpkin seeds, and cranberries. As I said earlier, you can easily substitute any of these ingredients for an equal portion of nuts, seeds, or dried fruit.
Use dates instead of figs or walnuts instead of almonds if you prefer. If your mixture is too dry, add in a few more figs or a drizzle of maple syrup and if it’s too wet, just blend in a few more nuts or seeds. See, it’s super easy!
These are not only a delicious snack, they are full of healthy fats, omega-3s, fiber, and many nutritious vitamins and minerals. Take them with you to work or to work out! Either way, I hope you enjoy them!
