Things that are happening in my life right now: midterms and copious amounts of hot chocolate.
Things that aren’t: sleep. Which I miss.
But luckily energy bars are here to the rescue!
I used to think that any snack/protein/breakfast/energy bar was just a “granola” bar, but then I learned all these fun names for them, so you can expect to see a full variety of things in bar form on here at some point.
I love coconut, so I have a habit of just kind of pairing with whatever seasonal flavor I’m working with. Since it’s November, I’m all about Thanksgiving and the winter holidays and cranberries are kinda where it’s at.
But all that holiday eating can sometimes (read: always) be too much. And so these cranberry coconut energy bars are completely sugar-free, vegan, gluten-free, and raw. Definitely a guilt-free breakfast or snack!
- 2 cups raw cashews
- ½ cup dessicated unsweetened coconut
- 1 cup dried cranberries
- 3 tbsp water
- pinch salt
- Pulse cashews in a food processor until finely ground.
- Add other ingredients and pulse till a dough forms. Add more water if the mixture isn't coming together.
- Press into the bottom of a parchment paper-lined 8x8 pan and freeze for an hour or refrigerate overnight to set.
