Homemade Energy Bars
I enjoy to make my own energy bars out of dried fruit, almonds and seeds and I have it in the refrigerator to cut a small piece after training or if I would like some cake and choose this instead. Its very easy to make, but you need a food processor or a strong blender.
- 2 handful’s of almonds
- 2 spoonful’s of linseed
- 2 spoonful’s of hempseed
- 2 spoonful’s of chia seed
- 1-2 spoonful’s of good quality cocoa
- 2 spoonful’s of coconut oil
- 3 dates
- 3 apricots
- 2 spoonful’s. organic acai powder (from acaiacai® – www.acaiacai.dk) This firm’s homepage inspired me as I have enjoyed their lovely freeze-dried acai product.
If I don’t have this expensive acai powder I use hip rose powder instead. It’s possible to change the ingredients.
The health benefits of the acai berry should be outspoken in many areas that has to renewing the cells and detox liver and kidneys and it tastes very delicious too.
All ingredients goes into the blender until it’s a fine mass. A oven-proof dish or plastic bowl is greased with a little coconut oil. Press the mass into the dish and make it even. Put it in the refrigerator or freezer. After one hour you can cut it in smaller bits or bars.
