Spirulina-Nut Energy Bars

When you want to buy a raw food bar from the grocery store and that little voice inside you says, “I can make that myself!”, here is how you can “make it yourself”.

I hardly ever justify spending $1.69 on one bar. Even though ingredients are costly these days, you still can make out better this way, plus you have almost the equivalent of a case of bars. And you may be more likely to adapt a healthier eating plan for the days following.

Many adjustments can be made here. There are no real laws to making raw food bars,except that you need something sticky to bind the nuts, coconut, and protein powders (if using) together.

You could easily leave out the spirulina, switch up some of the cashews and almonds for pecans, add a little cinnamon and you have pecan pie bars.

Ingredients:

  • 1/4 cup sunflower seeds
  • 1/2 cup cashews
  • 1/2 cup almonds
  • 1 cup pitted dates, soaked for 5 minutes if dry
  • 1 tablespoon spirulina powder
  • 1/2 cup shredded coconut
  • 1 tablespoon milled flax seeds

Using a food processor, process the sunflower seeds until fine. Add the remaining ingredients and process until mixture is consistent. Some nut chunks are okay and desirable. Scoop mixture with a 1/4-cup measuring cup. Form into bars and freeze or refrigerate. Makes 9-10.
