Raw Paleo Apple Cinammon Fruit & Nut Bars

I like my bars to have a little texture. I don't puree them until they're completely smooth. I like to keep the apples and almonds a little chunky.

I love bars!  They are so convenient when you are on the go.  Unfortunately, the cheaper bars are glorified candy bars, and the nutritious bars can be quite pricey.  I decided to try making my own.  I’m very much inlove with dates these days.  They are like nature’s caramel.  I’ve seen some different recipes for homemade bars using dates and I wanted to attempt my own with ingredients I had on hand.  I like simple recipes.  This could not get any simpler!

Ingredients:

1 cup dates

3/4 cup dried apples

1/2 cup almonds

1/4tsp cinnamon

1/4tsp nutmeg

Directions:  Throw everything into your high-speed blender.  Puree for several minutes.  How long you puree is really personal preference.  I like my bars to have a little texture to them.  I pureed mine til it was very broken down, but I could still recognize almond and apple pieces amongst the date puree.  It’s not going to be a smooth cream.  It should be a thick grimy mixture. Dump contents (I’d say pour, but it’s really too thick to pour – you may even need a spoon to scoop some out) into small pan or container.  I poured mine into a sandwich-size airtight container.  I stored it in the fridge overnight before cutting it into 4 bars.  When I’m heading out, I wrap a bar in plastic wrap and throw it in my purse.

Voila! Ready to head out!

      I hope you enjoy it! I find that there are few commercially-made bars that are truly nutritious, cost-effective, and none that taste as good as homemade.
