This is an excellent recipe to have snacks for on the run. These are better than any energy bars on the market, store well in the heat and have a wide variety of nutrients. Using only a few dates help balance the glycemic index and the flax and almonds provide Omega-6 poly and monounsaturated fats as well as omega-3 fatty acids.


1/2 c almonds, ground

1/3 c ground flax seeds

1 c oats

1/2 t cinnamon

1 t cacao nib

2 Tbsp coconut flakes

1/2 c figs

1 c dried fruit of your choice

1 t vanilla

1/2 t cinnamon

1/4 t salt
