1/1

The latest favorite on-the-go snack for my kids are Chocolate Peanut Butter Health Warrior Chia Bars. It gives them a good energy boost and is a satisfying snack for during the school day and before sports practice. We've been going through quite a few of them in the first few weeks if school, so of course I thought I would give it a try to make them myself. We did a taste test, and mine were definitely more chocolatey and peanutty than the commercial ones (which were, for some reason, a bit fruity, almost peachy tasting.) I'm happy to say that my homemade version won this taste test! 

 

3/4 cup pitted dates

1/4 cup peanut butter, or any other nut / seed butter

2 Tbsp cacao powder

2 Tbsp chia seeds

3 Tbsp gluten free rolled oats

1/4 cup raw whole almonds

1/2 cup kamut or quinoa puffs

2 Tbsp maple syrup

 

  • In a food processor or herb chopper, process all the ingredients together until the almonds and everything else has broken down into a paste. 

  • Transfer to a piece of parchment paper and form a thick rectangular shape out of the paste. Place another piece of parchment on top and roll this out to about 1/4" - 1/3" thick. Using a sharp knife, cut them into bars and refrigerate. 

  • Wrap them up individually with the parchment paper, or place them in an airtight food container with layers of parchment in between each slice.
