HEALTHY NO-BAKE ENERGY BARS

Finding healthy snacks has become one of my favorite things. It's probably because I really like to eat and I really like food. I like creating and finding healthy snacks that are fun and super yummy that I can share with you. I'm often thinking about snacks that we can have with us while on the go. We love getting outside during the warmer months and I've been wanting to find healthy snacks to go along with our outdoor adventures. When I saw Amy make these and I knew I had to try them too.

HEALTHY NO-BAKE ENERGY BARS

INGREDIENTS : 

  • 1 1/4 cups Old Fashioned Oats
  • 3/4 cup of chopped almonds
  • 2/3 cup Toasted Coconut Flakes
  • 3/4 cup Peanut Butter
  • 1/3 cup Honey
  • 1 tsp. Vanilla Extract
  • 1/2 cup chopped dark chocolate

METHOD : In a medium size bowl mix together all ingredients. Chill in refrigerator for one hour. Once chilled form into small bars, wrap in plastic wrap and return to refrigerator. If your mixture is too dry add a bit more peanut butter and honey.

One thing that I really love about these bars is that they kind of remind me of Cliff Bars, which we love to take with us on hikes. These bars are going to be perfect for a lovely afternoon adventure. xo. Samantha
