These Simple Natural Nut-Free |  Vegan | Gluten-Free Energy Bars are my favorite bars to take along when I know I will need some steady, quick energy! With a variety of food allergies, I like to stick with snack bars that have minimal whole food ingredients without added refined sugars, preservatives, artificial flavors or colors or chemical sweeteners. 

They pack well to take in your carry-on for a long plane flight, complement a picnic lunch perfectly and also make a satisfying and delicious treat for your healthy lunchbox!

The mix of satisfying fats and protein from the seeds, carbohydrates from the gluten-free oats and natural sugars in the dates provides the perfect mix of nutrients to prepare the body for a workout or recover after hitting a yoga class or the gym. Your post-workout recovery is boosted by the anti-inflammatory omega-3 fats and spices like ginger and Ceylon cinnamon.

Seeds are packed with plant-based nutrition and provide concentrated natural energy. Hemp, chia and flax seeds are all high in fiber and anti-inflammatory omega-3 fatty acids. Hemp hearts are also a complete protein providing all 19 essential amino acids which the body needs to carry out many important functions, ranging from immunity to energy production.  

In addition to the anti-inflammatory spices, raw cacao powder gives these Gluten-Free Energy Bars a chocolatey flavor along with a variety of vitamins and minerals, including zinc and magnesium


You can choose to add in some quinoa flakes in place of some of the gluten-free oats to boost protein. If you don’t have tigernut flour, you can substitute ground sunflower seed flour or almond flour or meal, if you don’t need to be nut-free.

These natural energy bars are sweetened with dates and coconut nectar instead of highly processed, refined sugars. These natural sugars help bind the bars together and give them some sweetness without the spike and crash you get from more refined sugars.
