Fruit & Nut Energy Bars

These simple, nutritious energy bars make great on-the-go snacks! I also make them into balls (shown in photo below), as they hold together better when traveling!

Ingredients:

½ cup seedless, pitless whole dates (unsweetened)

¼ cup raw almonds

3 Tbsp. creamy peanut butter (check out my blog on best peanut butters to buy)

With just three total ingredients, these bars are simple & nutritious.

Directions:

1. Add the dates to a food processor and process until it forms a thick fruit paste.

2. Remove the paste and set in a separate mixing bowl. Now process the nuts until they are fine, but not to a powder. Mix the nuts and peanut butter into the fruit paste until well combined.

3. Press the mixture into a lined dish to form bars to the thickness of your liking. Use your fingers or the back of a spoon to smooth them out evenly. Cover and refrigerate. Cut into bars when ready to eat.
