Raw No-Bake Date And Coconut Energy Bars

raw no bake date and coconut power bars

I have made a decision.

A firm one.

After making these bars a few days ago I am now sure that I feel no need to go back to the store bought ones. These homemade energy bars are perfectly delicious. Containing wonderful natural ingredients like dates, coconut, cocoa powder, oats and coconut oil they are packed full of nutrients. And I know what went into every single bite… and that sure is a good feeling.

Another plus is that there’s no added sugar, all the sweetening job is done by the dates. These bars are just finger-licking good, very easy to make, and – needless to say – they are much less expensive than their store counterparts.

I am really looking forward to making many batches of this healthy snack in the future.

And here’s how…

1. Place all the ingredients in your food processor and mix for about 5-7 minutes until all is combined (reserve a little coconut to sprinkle on top).

2. Line a square baking pan with parchment paper – cut a length of parchment paper long enough to line the bottom of the pan with extra hanging over the sides (I used a 8 x 8 x 2-inch / 20 x 20 x 5 cm baking pan).

3. Pour the mixture into the pan and press it firmly to the bottom of the pan (you can use the bottom side of a glass to help you with that).

4. Cover the pan with a plastic wrap a place in the refrigerator for at least 3 hours (or overnight).

6. Use the overhanging part of parchment paper to remove the mixture from the pan.

7. Cut into bars (I made 4 x 1 1/2-inch /10×4 cm bars).

    These bars look scrumptious. I don’t have a food processor. Will a blender work?

      Hi Janet! I am not very sure here, but you can try it – I would recommend working with smaller portions. If you find some time, let us know how it worked out! 🙂 Petra
