I personally prefer making my own bars when I have the time versus buying the store bought one’s. Because it allows me to control how much sugar is put into them, what type of ingredients I put in them, as well as mixing it up every week so I don’t get bored. Have you ever tried making your own?

I like to make a big batch of these during my meal prep Sunday, so I have a quick snack during the work week. I sometimes will freeze 1/2 the batch for a week I don’t have time to meal prep.

What you will need to make these bars:

  1. Dates soaked
  2. Spouted GF oats
  3. Chia seeds
  4. Nut/seed butter of your choice
  5. Vanilla extract
  6. Goji berries
  7. Mulberries
  8. Sea salt
  9. Filtered water
  10. Optional add in: Unflavored collegen peptides

You are going to either use a food processor or a high powered blender and blend your dates and vanilla extract. Then add in the rest of the ingredients and process until you get desired consistency. Then add to an 8×8 baking dish lined with parchment paper, press down with your hands to create an even layer, and freeze for up to an hour. Once done freezing, with a sharp knife cut into your bars, drizzle with some cacao coconut butter.
