Fruit and Nut Bars

Fruit and Nut Bars

Fruit and nut bars make a great snack on the go. With 5 grams of protein and 4 grams of fiber per serving they can certainly help to curb your appetite. They are quite high in carbs (28 grams per serving) so you want to go easy on these and not eat the whole pan. Although they are delicious and you might be tempted!


1 cup pitted dates
1/4 cup almond butter
1/4 cup honey
1 teaspoon vanilla
1 cup chopped almonds
1/2 cup old-fashioned oats
1/2 cup dried fruit (raisins, cranberries . . .)


Chop dates in a food processor until they form a ball. 
In a medium sized glass bowl, add the almond butter, honey and vanilla. Heat at half power in 30 second increments until the almond butter is melted and the mixture is a little warm.
Add the chopped dates to the bowl and mix well. 
Stir in the chopped almonds, oats and dried fruits.
Press the mixture into a non-stick 8" pan. Place the pan in the freezer until the bars have hardened up.
Cut into 12 bars and store in the refrigerator until you are ready to eat them.
