These energy bars are naturally delicious and packed with lots of nutrients! They are really easy to make and perfect for lunch boxes, road trips or afternoon snacking. BONUS: They are also gluten-free, nut-free and dairy-free!

  • 2 tbsp coconut oil melted (one of our toothpaste ingredients!)

  2. Place dates, apricots and cinnamon in a blender, and pulse several times until dates and apricots turn into chunks.
  3. Add pumpkin, chia seeds and coconut oil to the mixture in the blender, and pulse until there are small chunks of pumpkin seeds.
  4. Press the mixture into the prepared pan.
  5. Roll the top with a glass to flatten completely.
