Healthy No-Bake Breakfast Bars

My husband and I love all things granola bars! While often labeled as a "healthy" snack most of breakfast energy bars you find in the grocery store are far from that! If you do happen to find a truly pure bar there's often a steep price with it. Not only can you save money by making your own bars but you'll love being able to control the ingredients! These no-bake bars are a breeze to whip up and pretty darn tasty too! Softer than a Clif Bar with a bit more crunch than a Larabar these are the perfect grab and go breakfast or snack.

Healthy No-Bake Breakfast Bars

Yield: 16-20 Bars

Olive or coconut oil
1 3/4 cup pitted dates
1 tablespoon water
1/4 cup plus 1 tablespoon brown rice syrup
2/3 cup unsweetened nut butter
1/4 cup ground flax seeds
1/4 cup unsweetened coconut flakes
3/4 teaspoon cinnamon
1/4 cup chopped peanuts
1/3 cup slivered almonds
1 cup rolled oats
1/2 cup rice crisp cereal
1/3 cup raisins

Lightly oil a 9 x 13 inch pan with olive or coconut oil and set aside.

In a high power blender, pulse the dates and water until dates are finely minced. Add the rice syrup, nut butter, ground flax seeds and coconut flakes. Pulse until well mixed. Depending on the power of your blender you may want to stir in by hand your nut butter, ground flax and coconut flakes. Transfer mixture into a large bowl and stir in the remaining ingredients. At this point I put a little olive oil on my hands and mix everything together. Spread mixture evenly in prepared pan and firmly press. Cover and refrigerate for at least 2 hours before serving. Cut bars when chilled.

For easy convenience, individually wrap bars in plastic wrap and store in the fridge until ready to consume.
