I can’t justify spending over $1 each on brand name fruit and nut bars when it’s so easy to make them at home. Here are 2 varieties of nutrient-dense, enzyme-rich bars that are easy to pack, easy to eat, and fairly painless to put together.
These quick and easy homemade energy bites can be formed into balls or pressed and cut into bars. As long as your child is comfortable using a food processor, they can make them all by themselves! It’s my 8 year old demonstrating in the video!
These energy bites have simple ingredients and are naturally gluten, dairy, and egg-free. We’ve also included a nut-free version!
Once you get the process down and understand the ratios of dried fruit to nuts, you can
play around with new varieties on your own!
Makes 10-12 1 ½” x 3” bars or about a dozen 1-inch balls.
