Howdy, y’all! After stuffing myself with rich holiday foods, my body has been asking for a break. Perhaps yours has, too! 🙂 I thought our No Bake Tropical Energy Bars would be perfect for this. They are very quick to prepare, don’t require any baking as you can see, and are loaded with fiber, vitamins, minerals, and antioxidants from the tropical dried fruit mix and cashew nuts. They are also both gluten- and dairy-free, yet loaded with flavor.
Our energy bars can be served both for breakfast and as a healthy snack. They can also easily be carried to work, school, or any other place. Don’t you love them already?
I bought my tropical dried fruit mix at a Walmart supermarket. It contains raisins, dried pineapple and papaya, and also coconut and banana chips… Tropical fruits from my Brazil! Of course, if you dislike any of these fruits, or simply want to use a dried fruit or fruit blend that you already have in your pantry, you can certainly make a substitution. You can also substitute your favorite nuts for cashew nuts, which are native Brazilian ‘nuts.’ That is to say, you can personalize your energy bars — using these as a guide.
You can also choose whether you would like your energy bars with or without coffee crunch. If you are a coffee lover, you gotta have THE CRUNCH. 😉 It’s easy peasy to prepare!
Well, take great care of yourself and enjoy our healthy energy bars — with or without coffee crunch.
P.S.: This is our new photo shoot which my girls insisted on sharing with y’all! 🙂
