There is a great saying that goes something like–
“The difference between who you are and who you want to become is what you do.”
It’s even better when you add, “…and what you eat.”
Here is a recipe for a bar that will make your life a little better. Great for keeping yourself fueled before a workout or to keep you going after. It’s packed with protein and natural, refined sugar-free ingredients. These have a fresh, non-processed taste to them unlike most sports bars you would purchase in the store. They are soft and chewy.
Make them, Eat them, Love them….
Peanut Butter Crunch Flavor:
- 1 Cup Pitted & Soaked Dates (soak in water overnight or at least 4 hours)
- 1/2 Cup Cashews
- 1/2 cup Peanuts
- 2 Tbsp Natural Chunky Peanut Butter
- 2 Tbsp Cashew Butter
- 2 Tbsp Agave
- 1/2 tsp Vanilla
Place soaked Dates, peanut butter, cashew butter, vanilla, and agave in food processor. Blend until mixed. Add in nuts and pulse until nuts are incorporated into dough. You may add a few drops of water to get “dough” to stick and blend easier. Press mixture into a small glass or non-stick pan. I use an 8×6 glass pryex dish and get 4 big bars or 8 half-size bars which, I find are the perfect size. Once the mixture is pressed into the pan cover with wax paper. Using the back of a spatula flatten and shape into pan. Place in freezer for 20 minutes. Remove from freezer and using a knife or metal spatula cut your bars. Wrap in wax paper or sandwich bags for a snack on the go. These are best stored in the fridge but can travel well!
