Try out these raw superfood bars for a delicious on-the-go breakfast!

Breakfast really is the most important meal of the day. Failing to start your day with a nutritious meal will only lead to a lack of energy, decreased productivity levels and pesky cravings late in the day. And you don’t want that, now, do you?

I came across this downright delicious recipe for raw superfood bars a couple of months ago and have been making them almost weekly ever since. I can’t seem to get enough of them!

These tasty bars are far more budget-friendly than store-bought versions, only take a couple of minutes to make, and are perfect for an on-the-go breakfast. Because sometimes we just don’t have the time before work to cook up a big brekkie, right?

I hope you love this recipe as much as I do. Enjoy!

Raw superfood energy bars recipe

Makes: 6 bars

You’ll need:

  • 8 dates, pitted and chopped
  • 1/4 cup raw sunflower seeds
  • 1/4 cup raw almonds
  • 1/4 cup shredded coconut
  • 2 tbsp virgin organic coconut oil, softened
  • 1 tbsp chia seeds
  • 2 tbsp cacao nibs
  • Dash of salt

Optional ingredients:

  • Coconut butter, softened

What to do:

  1. Combine the dates, sunflower seeds, almonds, shredded coconut, coconut oil and salt in your food processor or blender.
  2. Blend the ingredients on high-speed until a textured batter is formed (should take two to three minutes). If the blending becomes difficult, start with one tablespoon of coconut oil and then add more as needed.
  3. Transfer the batter to a bowl and stir in the chia seeds and cacao nibs.
  4. Use your hands to form the batter into a rectangular shape on a baking sheet. It should be 1 cm to 1.5 cm thick.
  5. Place in the freezer for 10 to 15 minutes to let it harden, then remove and slice into six bars.
  6. If you’re using coconut butter, drizzle or spread it on top for added deliciousness.

You can store your energy bars in the fridge for up to four days.
