Almond Cacao Nibs Energy Bars
These Almond Cacao Nibs Energy Bars are super quick to make and they’re the perfect snack when you’re in a hurry or want something healthier.
Energy bars are kinda expensive for just a small serving size, so why not make them at home? If you love energy bars, you really have to try to make them at home. They’re easy to make and with just a few ingredients, you have amazing bars. And you can make more to freeze for later and when you go out, just take some on the go.
- 100 g of raw almonds
- 250 g of pitted dates
- 50 g of dried figs
- 1 tablespoon of desiccated coconut
- 1 tablespoon of raw cacao nibs
- 1 teaspoon of cinnamon
- 1 teaspoon of ground flax seeds
- 1 tablespoon of chia seeds
Start by blending the almonds. You can blend them as fine as you want. I like to blend it until they’re just cut into small pieces.
Now, add the dates in and blend until it almost forms a ball. Lastly, add the rest of the ingredients and blend just to incorporate them.
Line a small baking sheet with foil and pour the «batter» in. My baking sheet is 20×15. Pat it down with your hands to even it out so that the bars will stick together.
Put the baking sheet in the fridge for at least 2 hours to cool. Then, take it out and carefully, cut the bars.
Keep the bars in the fridge in an airtight container to stay fresh and delicious. Or you can freeze them and take them out whenever you need something sweet but healthier.
