Instead of heading for the vending machine, try one of these nutritious energy bars instead.


  • 2 cups medjool dates, pitted

  • ¾ cup raw cashews

  • ¼ cup cashew butter*

  • 1 large Love Beets cooked beet (or alternative), chopped (1/2 cup)

  • ¼ cup coconut flour

  • ¼ teaspoon sea salt

  • ¾ teaspoon ground cinnamon

  • *You can also use creamy peanut butter


  • 1.

    Add all ingredients to a food processor and process until a sticky ball forms. You may need to start and stop the food processor and scrape the sides several times.

  • 2.

    Transfer the mixture to an 20cm x 20cm square baking dish and press mixture evenly into the pan (it will be sticky). You can use a piece of parchment paper to help level out the mixture.

  • 3.

    Cover bars and freeze for 30 minutes (or refrigerate for 2 hours). Use a sharp knife to cut bars. Makes 16 bars.
