I got hooked on making my own energy bars after discovering how easy these were. I love to grab a bar to snack on while waiting in carpool like. I just hated paying the high price for the premade ones.

These couldn’t be more simple to make, literally toss everything in a food processor. You’ll then pulse until the mixture is the consistency you like. Do you like coarse chunks or a more fine texture? You’re in charge and you’ll quickly find out how fun and easy these are to make.

These energy bars are highly adaptable. You can substitute any dried fruit for the apricots or switch the almonds for another nut. It’s a great way to use up odd amounts of dried fruits and nuts and as long as the bars stick together, you’re good!

  • Line a 8x8 inch pan with aluminum foil or waxed paper, spray with non-stick spray if using foil.
  • Add all ingredients to a food processor. Pulse until mixture is the consistency you prefer. I go for medium texture, as seen.
  • Dump mixture into pan and press flat using your fingertips. Press firmly so mixture sticks together.
  • You can eat it right away or allow to set and it will stick and hold together better.

    I absolutely love both dried apricots and almonds so this is my kind of snack. Would they hold their shape as balls too?

  3. These look and sound fantastic – and they’re so healthy too! I can’t wait to try them.
    It’s great to have found you (we have a mutual friend – Brendan in San Francisco).
    Best to you and happy 2015!

  4. Love everything you used in these homemade energy bars! They sound perfect for after a workout or when you need a grab and go snack. So much better than anything from the store too! Pinning!

  5. LOVE these, Paula! I made some cashew date snack bars a few weeks ago (still need to post) and they were so good. I’ve found I really love the sweetness dates add to a recipe. Gonna have to try these bars sometime!

    1. I do too. I tried dates for the first time in some balls a couple years ago and I’m totally in love with them. Thanks for stopping by Julie.
