A vegan, gluten-free, healthy almond energy bars that taste so good you won’t even believe it’s healthy.
It’s been a while since I posted a recipe on the blog, so I thought I’d share with you one of my all-time favorite healthy breakfast to grab on the go aka my almond energy bars.
They are amazing for that boost of energy in the morning, I am not a coffee drinker so I always need something to energize me and to really wake me up in the morning.
Super easy to make, no bake needed, all you really need is a food processor to make these almond energy bars.
You can make them ahead and keep them in the fridge up to 2 weeks, but I can assure you, they are so yummy that they won’t last that long!!

- 1 Cup Almonds
- 1 Cup Walnuts
- 1 Cup Oat
- 1/2 Cup Pitted dates
- 1 Tbsp Chia seeds
- 1 Tsp Vanilla extract
- 2 Tbsp Hot water
- 1/2 Tsp Salt
Start by pulsing the almonds and walnuts in a food processor for about 3 minutes or until you don't see big chunks of nuts.
Place your nut mixture in a bowl, add oat, salt and chia seeds. Mix well and reserve.
Place the pitted dates in your food processor and mix with the hot water. It will take 4 to 5 min to obtain a smooth paste.
Combine all of the ingredients together to form a sticky dough. You can adjust the texture; If your dough is too sticky, add some oat, if not sticky enough add some water.
Wrap a mold with plastic film. I used a silicone mold, but you can use anything you want.
Place the dough in the center of your mold, and spread it. Chill in the fridge for at least 1 hour before serving.
