Print Friendly 

Description:
This is a perfect energy bar full of nuts, berries and seeds that will curb your hunger and look after any cravings. As it is full of nuts and seeds it is a great protein source and would be a good snack.

Ingredients:
2 C pitted Dates
1/3 C agave nectar
½ C cashew butter
1 C ground almonds
½ C pumpkin seeds
½ C Hemp seeds
¼ C chia seeds
¼ C sesame seeds
½ dried Goji berries
½ C coconut
2/3 C organic chocolate chips or cocoa nibs.


Directions:
Mix all ingredients well in food processor. Spoon into 8 x 8 pan. ( I used a 9 x 13”) Refrigerate for at least 3 hours before cutting. Cut very small as they are filling, and individually wrap.
It filled the food processor, so I ended up processing it in two batches. I added a bit of cocoa powder as well, used hazelnut butter instead of cashew, and added nearly ¼ C warm water to help it mix. Maybe try adding some cayenne? Yum. Could be rolled into balls.

Wellness Tip
Bean Power
Beans, also called legumes, are inexpensive and quite filling. The U.S. Dietary Guidelines recommends eating them several times each week. Red, black, pinto, or kidney beans all pack a nutritional punch. One-third cup of cooked beans has only 80 calories, no cholesterol, lots of complex carbohydrates, and little fat. They are also a great source of protein, full of B vitamins, potassium, and fiber. Experts believe that eating beans may reduce blood cholesterol, a leading cause of heart disease.
