Peanut Butter Energy Bars

Simple to make would be an understatement. These chewy energy bars are super easy to whip up and make the perfect snack for carrying around for on the go. Instead of bars, you could alternatively roll into balls and enjoy on oatmeal, coated in chocolate, with ice cream or solo. The options are endless.

Two Ingredient Peanut Butter Energy Bars

Makes 12 to 15 bars

I N G R E D I E N T S

1 cup (180 g) crunchy peanut butter
2–3 cups (340–510 g) pitted dates, as needed
2 tbsp (14 g) ground flax seeds (optional)
⅛ tsp sea salt (optional)

Extras:
Cinnamon
Vanilla
Ginger
Chocolate chips
Hemp seeds 

M E T H O D

Throw both the ingredients in a food processor and process until you have a very thick dough. If it’s too moist and your food processor can’t handle it, add flax seeds and/or more dates to loosen up the dough. Add sea salt if desired. Feel free to add other flavourings like cinnamon, vanilla, ginger, chocolate chips, hemp seeds, etc. 

Press the dough firmly into a lined pan and leave it in the fridge for at least 2 hours; then slice it into bars and store in the fridge for up to a month. 

Note: Use whatever nut butter you like!
