These energy bars are loaded with nourishing plant-based ingredients and they work well as packable snacks, breakfast replacement bars or even dessert if you’re into something healthy as a sweet treat. Full of bold flavor, chewy and super easy to make, they’re also vegan and gluten free!

INGREDIENTS

2 cups Medjool dates, seeds removed

1 cup Navitas Organics Cashew Nuts

½ cup Navitas Organics Cacao Butter

½ cup coconut flakes

¾ cup Navitas Organics Chia Seeds

½ cup pumpkin seeds

1⁄3 cup maple syrup

¼ cup Navitas Organics Cacao Powder

Pecans, optional

DIRECTIONS

Line a square baking pan with parchment paper and set aside.

In a food processor, add the cashew nuts, coconut flakes, cacao butter and pumpkin seeds. Pulse for a few seconds until everything is broken down into small pieces.

Add in the dates, cacao powder, chia seeds, maple syrup and pinch of sea salt. Pulse for a few more seconds until all ingredients are well combined.

Pour the mixture into the prepared baking pan and evenly spread out using a rubber spatula, keeping it about ½ to 1-inch in thickness.

Cover baking pan with plastic wrap and place in the refrigerator until firm, about 2-3 hours. Once firm, gently uplift mixture out of the baking pan using the parchment paper and cut into bars.

Makes 8 bars
