It’s a Victoria day here in Canada today, which makes it a holiday, so I’m heading to the theme park with my friends to get a good scream from the roller coaster rides! However, I don’t want to eat any junk food today, and if you are well aware of theme parks, junk food is pretty much around you (hmmm funnel cake). Anyways, I decided to make healthy energy bars for us to enjoy as a snack. it will give us a boost of energy from the natural sugars in the dates and protein and healthy fatty oils from the nuts. So hopefully we wouldn’t be craving funnel cake *fingers crossed*

I also had some left overs which had less dates because I ran out, so I turned them into mini peanut butter squares 🙂


To all my Canadians, happy Victoria day! And to everyone else, have a great monday! 🙂

Recipe: yields 12-16 squares

1 cup raw almonds
1 cup raw pecans
1/4 cup organic raw peanut butter
1 cup medjool dates (pitted)

Place all ingredients in a food processor and puree until a well moulded sticky consistency forms.

Place mixture on parchment or foil paper and mould into a square or rectangle shape (depending on how thick or thin you want them).

Place your moulded mixture in the freezer for 5 minutes. When ready, cut into squares and consume.

Store remaining in the refrigerator. I believe you can store these in the freezer if you want them to preserve longer.
