Delicious Energy Bars

Delicious Energy Bars

Energy bars are very popular and often a quick grab and go for busy people. (That probably includes all of us). I have seen way too many using energy bars as a meal replacement. Not a good idea if you are serious about your health.

Energy bars are best when they become a treat and not a staple. I make mine small to avoid temptation. Using one prior to working out along with  alkaline water  is the very best option. After class, walking or training once again a small piece along with more alkaline water.  (See previous post on healthy drinking water)

Because I am all about helping you along your prevention journey, it needs to be noted again that they are a treat, not a meal.

Energy Bars Basic Recipe
2 cup barley (soaked 3 days)
¾ cup dates
3T raw honey
1tsp. cinnamon
1tsp. non alcoholic organic vanilla extract
1 cup walnuts soaked & chopped
½ cup almonds soaked 5 & chopped

Step 1

Place barley and dates in the food processor and mix

Step 2
Add honey, cinnamon, vanilla, almonds, walnuts and mix well.


Step 3
Place dough on  Paraflexx sheets  to prepare for the  dehydrator.
Tip: Place the dough on Paraflexx sheets that are on a hord surface prior to placing on dehydrator trays.

Place on trays and cut into the size that works best for you. I usually do 1 ½ inch x1 ½ inches.


Step 4

Dehydrate at about 110 for 6-8 hours. Remove Paraflexx sheet and turn the bars over halfway. 

Note:  If you do not have a dehydrator yet, and you will soon, bake bars at 250 for about 2-3 hours. Leave the oven slightly open using a towel to prop the door. Check for consistency and moisture.


Step 5
Place the bars into an air tight container. They will actually stay fresh for weeks. ………if they last that long!
