Protein Bars

These babies taste gourmet! You know those expensive protein bars you can buy at health food stores? Here is a great alternative recipe that will cost you half the price and be free of the preservatives that most other bars have. And, we were pleasantly surprised at how good they taste. If they were not so filling, I would be eating a lot more!

1 1/2 c. almonds
4 T. honey
1/2 c. unsweetened coconut (available at health food stores)
1/2 c. dried fruit (we used dried cherries, but it should also work with cranberries or dates)
2 t. chia

Chop nuts in food processor, then add remaining ingredients and chop them all together.

Press mixture into greased bread pan. Let set and then cut into bars. Prepackage in snack-sized bags for a quick, take-along snack.

A Note about Raw Foods

When foods aren't cooked and processed, more of the health benefits remain. And that fact makes me feel even better about the healthiness of this treat!
