Xocolate Energy Bars

Two chocolate energy bars on plate

Car­ry­ing ener­gy bars with you can help you eat health­i­er and save on mon­ey and time.  But bars can get expen­sive if you eat them all the time that’s why I came up with my own.  These bars are nutri­tious,  easy to make, and less expen­sive than store bought bars. They are rich in fiber, pro­tein, healthy fats, vit­a­mins and min­er­als. Add a fruit or a glass of skim milk and you have a healthy snack or small meal.

You need a food proces­sor for this recipe.

Ingre­di­ents:

1 cup quick-cook­ing oats

12 cup raw almonds

12 cup raw sun­flower seeds

14 cup whole wheat flour

12 cup raisins

12 cup pit­ted dried dates

12 cup dried figs

12 cup non­fat dry milk

12 cup cocoa

14 cup maple syrup or agave nec­tar

2 large eggs

12 cup semi-sweet choco­late chips

 

Direc­tions:

1. Pre­heat oven to 350°F and spray a bak­ing sheet with cook­ing spray.

2.  Place all ingre­di­ents, except the maple syrup, eggs and choco­late chips, into food proces­sor and pulse until fine­ly chopped.

3.  Add the maple syrup, eggs and choco­late chips and pulse until all ingre­di­ents are hydrat­ed and form a paste.

4.  Place mix­ture onto bak­ing sheet and spread even­ly.  Spread until it’s  about 14 inch thick.  Bake for 15–20 min­utes.  Cut into rec­tan­gles and let cool.  Wrap each bar in saran wrap or place in snack size ziploc bags.
