1 Tbsp water – if needed

1 cup dates
1 cup mixed raisins and dried apple
2 tbsp cinnamon

1 cup almonds
1 cup dates
1 cup dried banana

Blueberry Muffin Power Bar

Carrot Cake Power Bar

1 cup mixed almonds and walnuts
1 cup mixed dates and raisins
1 cup mixed dried pineapple, shredded coconut, and carrot
1 tbsp coconut oil
2 tbsp cinnamon


In a food processor, pulse the nuts until they are broken into tiny pieces (do not pulse for too long, as it will turn into powder). Pit the dates (if  using dates in recipe)  and add them to the food processor. Blend ingredients together, occasionally scraping down the sides of the food processor. If the mixture is not sticking together, add one tablespoon of water and continue blending. The mixture should stick together and be pliable. Remove the mixture and form into a ball. Place the ball on a large piece of saran wrap. Cover the top of the ball with another layer of saran wrap and flatten with a rolling pin or your hands. Cut into 6 pieces and wrap individually in saran wrap. Refrigerate for 30 minutes and enjoy!
Note: Store the bars in the refrigerator or freezer for maximum life.
