Cran-Goji Berry Bliss Bars

"My little taste tester" is my muse when it comes to making healthy goodies that we an eat on a regular basis, with whole ingredients and no additives.


Homemade, healthy snacks are the way to go. 


This is a recipe for a no-bake, raw bar.  Easy to make and simply delicious.

Cran-Goji Berry Bliss Bars 

Ingredients
 
1 1/2 cups Nuts or Seeds (walnuts, pecans, almonds, macadamia nuts, hazelnuts)
1/2 cup Raisins  
1/2 cup dried Cranberries   
1/4 cup Goji Berries, soaked for 20-30 minutes  
1/2 cup Dates, pitted and packed  
1/2 cup Coconut Oil
1/4 cup-1/2 cup Coconut Flour or Almond Flour (I used both)  
1 tsp Cocoa Powder
1 TBSP Nut Butter (I used Almond Butter)  
2 TBSP Hemp Protein Powder (optional)

Combine all ingredients in a food processor until chunky cookie dough texture is achieved.  
Press into a parchment paper-lined pan or cookie sheet.  
Chill in the fridge until firm, about 30 minutes or longer (or freeze for 15-20 minutes).
Cut into bars and drizzle with chocolate topping and coconut.

Chocolate Topping 

1/2 cup Cocoa Powder
2 TBSP Agave Nectar, Maple Syrup, or Honey  
3 tsp Coconut Oil, melted  
1/4 cup Water  

Stir all ingredients together and drizzle over bars. 
Enjoy!


Store in the fridge or freezer for a few weeks.
