Fruit-and-Nut Energy Bars
These chewy energy bars are packed with protein and fiber—perfect for a breakfast on the go or tiding you over between meals. A homemade bar is not only rewarding to make, but it doesn’t have any chemicals, stabilizers, or fillers—it’s just the good stuff. In the case of this recipe, that means fragrant toasted coconut for a ton of flavor without sugar and dried plums (which you might know as prunes) for sweetness. Look for glossy, plump dried plums, which will make these bars moister. Once you’ve tried the recipe customize to your heart’s delight—swap in your favorite nut for the walnuts, a different seed for the sunflowers, or even some dates to mix with the dried plums.
