Breakfast Bars:





Introduction: Breakfast Bars:

Full of protien and fiber, these breakfast bars are great for rushed mornings.

Step 1: Ingredients/Materials

- 1 c raw almonds (whole)
- 15 dates
- 1/2 c honey
- 1/2 tsp vanilla extract
- 1/2 tsp almond extract
- 1 1/2 c oat flour (this can be made by grinding oatmeal [unflavored] in food processor)
- 1/4 c unsweetened cocoa powder
- 1/4 c toasted pecans (whole)
- 1/4 c unsweetened shredded coconut
- 1/4 c chocolate chips
These measurements are not exact. I just estimated so feel free to alter them to fit your diet.
- Food processor
- Various measuring cups and spoons
- 8×8 pan
- Parchment paper

Step 2: Grind Almonds

Put the almonds in the food processor and grind for about 30 seconds, or until it reaches a wet, grainy, consistency. Not quite almond butter consistency however.

Step 3: Add Dates

Remove the pits from the dates and blend them with the almonds.

Step 4: Mix in Honey and Extracts

Add honey and extracts and blend.

Step 5: Oat Flour and Cocoa Powder

Add in the oat flour and cocoa powder (I forgot about the cocoa powder till after I mixed in the oat flour but it's fine to mix them in at the same time).

Step 6: Extras :)

Now comes the fun part, the extras :). Toasted pecans, coconut, and chocolate chips finish these bars off.

Step 7: Press Into Pan:

Press the mixture into your pan and chill.

Step 8: Final Notes:

I love these bars. They taste great and keep me going for hours. I made half this recipe (That's why I used a bread pan). This makes enough for about 7 bars. However, I think that I will make 14 (the amount that this recipe makes) next time. I haven't had any trouble with freezing them over a week (they've been gone by the end of the week so I don't know about keeping them longer than that but I think they should be okay). You can download the PDF or print the recipe below. Hope you enjoy them!

    These sound great! For those of us who don't have a food processor, would almond meal be a decent shortcut instead of whole almonds?

    That should be fine. However, some of the ingredients (pecans, dates) may need to be chopped first. Also, they may not stick together as nicely. I would love to know if it works!
