It can be hard to find snack food that is prepackaged and clean. What I mean by clean is free of dairy, soy, gluten, added sugar, corn and other allergens. I miss the days when I was out and could just grab a bar of some kind that sounded good when I needed something quick. I don’t leave the house anymore without some kind of emergency snack. Here is my recipe for Blueberry Energy Bars that are really delicious! They are sweetened with dates. The ingredients are all nutritious and will give you energy. I make these in my food dehydrator.
Blueberry Energy Bars
You will need a food processor and a food dehydrator for this recipe.
1 Cup Raw Walnuts
1 Cup Raw Almonds
6 Medjool Dates (pitted)
1/2 Cup Finely Shredded Unsweetened Coconut
1/3 Cup Dried Blueberries
1 Tablespoon Vanilla Extract (Pure SCD Legal)
1/4 Teaspoon Himalayan Pink Salt
In a food processor, place the dates, walnuts and almonds and pulse until finely chopped. Add in the coconut, vanilla extract and salt. When it is all incorporated and starting to stick together (so you can form bars) add the blueberries and pulse a few times until they are incorporated. You want them to stay pretty much whole. On a teflon lined or parchment lined dehydrator tray, form the mixture into a dozen bars. Dehydrate for 22 hours at 105° degrees. Let cool, then individually wrap the bars.
You have a portable, delicious snack to take with you!
