A Great Snack For Busy Times
Welcome to Family Friendly Fridays! Summer is quickly approaching and that means BUSY times are coming!
We have an action packed summer planned this year! My girls have summer school, girls scout camp, swim lessons, vacation bible school and many other summer activities.
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 too 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.

Shawnie Imbert says
looks yummy! 🙂
Can you soak the nuts but not dehydrate them? Thanks
I can’t have honey on the candida diet what could I use instead of honey?
Bernadette Wheeler says
How can I add protein powder to this and still have it come out ok? I eat keto so no grains, gluten or sugar but I need to bump up my protein intake without adding too many more fats
Halle Cottis says
You could add some gelatin from a grass fed source. That would be the best choice for your needs.
Goodness this looks delicious! Bookmarking it. Thanks for sharing.
