Energy Bars / Nut Bars




Introduction: Energy Bars / Nut Bars

I always have a few nut bars with me. They are excellent as fuel after a long day or after workouts. All ingredients are natural, no additives that aren't common in nature.

Step 1: Ingredients

50 dates
350 grams of almonds
100 grams of hazelnuts
125 grams of unsweetened shredded coconut
2 eggs
25 grams of unsweetened cocoa, powdered

Step 2: The Making Of...

Grind all the nuts, or cut them with a knife if you don't mind if they are coarse ground.
Remove the seeds from the dates. Knead the dates into a thick dough. Cut through the dates with a knife to make sure there are no seeds left in the dough.
Break the eggs into a big bowl, and add the other ingredients. Mix into a thick, sticky dough. Shape it into small bars and bake it in the oven at 175 degrees Celsius (347 degrees Fahrenheit) for about 40 minutes.

Contains (approximate values) 54% fat, 37% carbohydrates, 9% protein. These bars works great as fuel right after workouts, or as a snack when you are just a bit hungry.

    ohh man!!! I love dates. I use to pack them as snack on every biking trip in the mountain. It has lots of vitamins and minerals. Dates fruits are nutritritious. I eat them as a substitute for energy bars.

    Bro, the one you made here is absolutely energy giver+protein!!! Thanks for sharing...

    I like it but I'd rather do pemmican. Way cheaper and a pound of meat will make enough pemmican that you can survive off it alone for 2 months. Specially if you have bread to fill your stomach up with the pemmican.

    I love dates, they are so great for you - just a bit high in calories per fruit. Be careful though, add honey to this mix and you easily call these aphrodisiac bars! Maybe them looking like human excrement is important to counter this effect.
