Busy morning? Traveling? Experiencing mid-day snack cravings? That shouldn't mean you have to compromise your health. If you don't have time for a luxurious bowl of oatmeal or a power-packed smoothie, these bars are the perfect alternative. They pretty much incorporate all the ingredients I would put into my oatmeal, except they're on-the-go and eat-with-your-hand friendly. Sweetened with date paste and filled with nuts, goji berries, and spices, these chewy bars will give you the fuel you need to keep that beautiful body moving!
You can substitute any dried fruit or nuts you'd like for this recipe. I love using dried cherries and walnuts. Break up into pieces and use as granola. Don't have time to bake them? Pop in the freezer for about an hour (or until they fully set) and enjoy a raw version.
