Winter Running Energy BarSubmitted by: GEOGIRL
IntroductionRecipe from "Impact Magazine" Recipe from "Impact Magazine"
2 cups dates
1 TBSP Water
1/2 TBSP Lemon Juice
1/4 Cup Coconut
1/4 Cup Hemp Seeds
1/4 Cup Pumpkin or Sunflower Seeds
2 TBSP Dried Cranberries
Put dates, water and lemon juice in food processor and blend until dates become a sticky paste (play with the consistency). Now add in the rest of the ingredients and blend (mine formed a ball in the food processor).
When blended line a square baking dish with parchment paper and then press the mixture into the pan evenly. Put in the fridge for about an hour and then take it out and cut into your desired sized portions.
I find these ideal to take along on a winter run for energy since its so hard to find a gluten and nut free energy bar.
Number of Servings: 10
