Chia Date & Almond Bars Recipe
Last week I made a similar recipe like this one. My husband loved the bars so much that I played around with the ingredients and made a different variation: Chia Date & Almond Bar Recipe. I doubled the quantities of Chia & Flax Seed to give it more nutritional properties.
These bars are chewy, leathery, sweet and wholesome. Perfect for kids and adults. And they are super easy to make! Just dump all the ingredients in a food processor or a Blendtec Blender with Twister Jar, refrigerate and that’s it. I don’t even bother cutting up the dates.
I cut them in pretty large bars but you can certainly cut them any way you would like. A great idea would be squares or little balls – I’ll try that next week. 🙂
These Chia Date & Almond Bars Recipe can be customized to suit your taste. If you’re not a fan of Dates you can try dried apples, oranges, prunes or any other dried fruit. Same with the Almonds – substitute with hazelnuts, walnuts, pecans. Whatever you heart desires. The possibilities are endless! If you don’t have Chia or Flax Seed at home, just leave them out.
For the bars you will need:
– Unsweetened Cranberries
– Almonds, toasted
– Walnut Oil
Grab all the ingredients and blend into a Food processor or a Blendtec Blender. If your food processor can’t handle that quantity of ingredients, blend the almonds first until you get a nice puree and then add the rest of the dried fruits.
Pour the entire mixture into an 8×8 pan lined with parchment paper. Place in the fridge for one hour and then cut into bars.
