Date and Nut Bars - Live Slow Run Far

Date and Nut Bars

You can’t have too many recipes for homemade energy bars and here’s our latest addition to the rotation – a perfectly soft, chewy, nutty concoction that will propel any and all outdoors adventures, as well as get you out of those mid-afternoon dips. Wrap these up and bring them on the go, or just keep them in a container in the fridge and munch away as you please.

These have that classic date sweetness and a really nice nutty flavor, and if that’s not right up your alley, feel free to check out these Peanut Butter Chocolate Chunk Granola Bars – one of the most popular recipes on this site, as a matter of fact. Another favorite is these No-bake Apple Cinnamon Granola Bars, which accompanied us on our most recent ski trip. Basically, making your own energy bars is where it’s at, and we hope you’ll find your own favorite around here!
