My husband and I are celebrating our 10th anniversary so we have a trip planned to Belize (oh my can’t wait for that) and I am turning 40 this year and heading to New Mexico to bring in my 40th!  

A Healthy Treat For Traveling


Wow with so much going on and so much traveling, I felt the need to come up with some quick and easy snacks that we could pack and go.  

This week I am sharing some amazing energy bars!  Oh did I mention that there is no baking involved?  How easy is that!  

If you have been looking for some healthy energy bars, I am sure you have quickly learned that there really aren’t to many options out there.  That is ok!  Once you make these, you will not have to worry about that anymore.  

Customize These Energy Bars To Your Liking


Feel free to add items to these energy bars.  Some additional ingredients might be dried fruit (cranberries, pineapple, papaya, and organic raisins), coconut, carob chips to name a few.  

You could also omit the nut butter and add a tad bit more honey if desired.  Don’t be shy to play around.

Family Friendly Fridays ~ Finally A Healthy Organic "No Bake" Energy Bar Recipe!
Serves: 4 energy bars
  1. Mix together melted honey and nut butter. Allow to cool, you don't want to melt the chocolate chips.
  2. Mix the remaining ingredients together and press firmly into a small dish lined with parchment paper.
  3. Add a dash of salt to the top of the energy bars.
  4. Refrigerate for at least one hour and the energy bars will form together.
  5. Slice after well chilled.
  6. Store in refrigerator.
Special Note: If you are not soaking and dehydrating your nuts then add ¼ tsp of salt to the honey and nut butter mixture.

    Except I would try using Brown Rice Syrup in place of the honey

  10. ValerieAustinRibbron says:

    These are good!  Added a little coconut oil to my batch.  Will probably add shredded coconut to the next batch.

    These are my new favorite snack! 1 tbsp of honey is sweet enough for me and I added some chopped dark chocolate instead of the chips.  Love the salty, sweet, crunch…just perfect and very satisfying…thanks Halle!!
