This started out as my attempt to replicate a breakfast bar that was made by a Portland bakery that has since closed. I had to add more of the liquid ingredients to make the bars less crumbly, although they still crumble some if you aren't careful. Also, I like these better than the bars I started out trying to copy.
You can play around with pretty much everything here: your choice of sweetener, nut butter, nuts, fruits. Just make sure you have enough of the liquid ingredients and dates to bind this together.
I love these bars, and they have become my grab and go breakfast, along with a mug of matcha. They're vegan when made without honey. Enjoy!
A wholesome and delicious grab-and-go breakfast or snack.
Prep Time: 20 minutes
You can play around with the combination of nuts, using your favorites, and the liquid mixture. The same for the fruit.
Store in a sealed container. They also freeze well. You can also wrap the bars individually so you can take them to go.
