Chocolate Covered Fruit and Nut Bars! (Gluten & Soy Free!)

Posted Jun 26 2012 9:01am

Morning again! Thank you so much for all the comments, tweets and emails I recieved after my post about my Pure Bliss Eats Small Business Journey. I loved reading every one of them. I’m so happy to be able to share my story with you and will continue to along the way.

Yesterday after packing up some boxes to be shipped out I decided to make a nice sweet snack. I have been slacking in the kitchen in a major way. I usually just throw things together that aren’t really blog worthy, so yesterday I figured why not make something I can actually post? I occasionally buy KIND bars, which has been a new treat for me. Yes, even though I own my own snack company, I still support other businesses. But yesterday I decided to make my own version of KIND bars…and I have to say they turned out very tasty!

I wanted to get this recipe up, but I will post better pictures soon!

Chocolate Covered Fruit & Nut Bars

These bars are a perfect snack for anytime of the day. They are chock full of  protein, healthy fat and anti-oxidants! 

Ingredients

  • 1 cup raw almonds
  • 1 cup walnuts
  • 1/4 cup shelled hemp
  • 1/4 cup chia seeds
  • 2 tbsp coconut oil
  • 1/3 cup + 1 tbsp honey
  • dash of salt
  • 1/3 cup freeze dried blueberries
  • 1/3 cup dried blueberries (infused with apple juice) (also feel free to use 2/3 cup of either blueberries)
  • 1/3 cup chocolate chips + 1 1/2 cups chocolate chips for melting

Preheat oven to 350 degrees. In a food processor, pulse almonds and walnuts so they are broken up into smaller pieces. Remove and place in a large bowl. Add all other dry ingredients: hemp, chia, blueberries, salt and chocolate chips. Mix together. Stir in honey and coconut oil and mix until it’s all evenly coated. Spread evenly in a 8×8 or 9×9 pan, depending on desired thickness. Press down with a spatula so it’s all even. Bake for 15 minutes. Remove from oven and let cool for 5-10 minutes. After cooled, melt chocolate. Spread an even layer over top of bars. Freeze until chocolate hardens. Take out of freezer, let sit for 3-5 minutes and cut into pieces. Enjoy!  

 

What’s your favorite homemade bar right now? Or packaged bar? 

I’m off for a run in this cooler temperature! Going to enjoy every single step! :)

Have a great day!
