it’s only tuesday, so we could all use some Healthy Vegan Energy Bars, am i right lol?! but really, they’re the ultimate energy bars to have on hand in the fridge for multiple reasons. first and foremost, they’re DELICIOUS. secondly, Healthy Vegan Energy Bars are super nutritious and packed with healthy fats. ah, and let’s not forget they contain ZERO added sugar unless you drizzle the top with sweetened chocolate.
another great feature of these bars? they’re no bake, so the prep is super easy!
Alex and i live for a good homemade bar, especially Alex though because he loves easy, healthy and portable snacks while he’s working. he’s on his feet all day long and a long lunch isn’t an option. anything that’s quick, packed with nutrients and will keep him feeling full is a must.
wholesome ingredients, simple flavors, and sweet enough to feel like dessert- that sounds like the ultimate bar right? there’s no sugar overload involved, just natural sweetness from dates, raisins and cranberries. it really is a great snack and i’m thrilled with how the recipe turned out!
whether you eat a Healthy Vegan Energy bar as a pre-workout snack or some fuel for a weekend adventure, you will 100% feel satisfied. they’re easy to put together using a food processor and you can definitely store them in the freezer instead of the fridge if you want to save some for later on. just thaw the bars a bit before eating!
ok friends, i’m off to the dentist, which i am soooo not excited about lol. then if the weather permits, i have a photoshoot for my new website (coming soon). i’ll be sure to have a Healthy Vegan Energy bar on hand if i get hungry <3
