Are you looking for a delicious and healthy energy bar you can take with you on the go that doesn't cost 3 bucks a bar?
Want to eat something healthy and homemade, and can't spend all your time in the kitchen? Me neither!
Or (if you're like me) you aren't a very good baker.
I guess there's just something about having to perfectly measure ingredients that just makes me want to break the rules on purpose.
But seriously, I sometimes forget to put in an ingredient in when I'm baking and end up with a big flop.
This week I am sharing an amazing energy bar! Oh, did I mention that that it's a NO BAKE Energy bar!
How cool and easy is that?!!
It's a perfect fuel for on-the-go munching.
And, let's face the fact, most store-bought energy bars can take a toll on your budget and may contain unpronounceable preservatives. So why not make your own homemade -healthy energy bars in just a few minutes?
Our main ingredients for our energy bars are Dates and Pistachios.
Dates are best eaten when they are fresh and in season to get the health benefits from them. Plus they are ooey and gooey. Yum!
It's a Date!
Dates are an excellent source of vitamins, minerals, and fibers. This little fruit can give an extra energy needed to get through the day since it contains large amount of natural sugars. Dates are rich with potassium, which helps control heart rate and blood pressure.
Pistachios are harvested in late summer and early fall.
Pistachios are great antioxidants! High in fiber, which helps you feel fuller longer and promotes digestive health. Rich in vitamin A, which is key for healthy vision, proper cell growth and a strong immune system. Contains essential fatty acids. Finally, restores the balance of electrolytes in the body and keep muscles functioning at their best.
This makes these Date and Pistachio Bars ooey goodness that are good for you!
