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!
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)
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.
