Nutty Snack Bar

Recently I led nearly 20 people through a detox resulting in healthy glowing skin, weight loss, reduction of inflammation, improved digestion and happier attitudes among a plethora of additional benefits. During this detox we gave up all processed foods; it was important to cook most, if not all, of our own food.

Healthy, homemade snacks became important as we noshed on clean foods like carrots, hummus and avocado. Towards the end of the detox I yearned for something that is a little bit like a treat and I wanted a snack I could take with me on the go. That's when I tossed this recipe together and it really hit the spot.

These bars come together in a snap. Use whatever ingredients are in your pantry and cut them to whatever size works best for you. I like to make little bite-sized pieces for when I'm at home, but I cut some into a bar size to take on the go with me. Always remember moderation is key with all foods, these tasty little snacks can become addictive so it's best to portion them out

Great for a work or school snack, perfect for a plane trip or during a long sports day, these Fat and Happy Snack Bars will keep you going without gluten, dairy or refined white sugar.

Healthy Nutty Power Bar


1/2 cup crunchy almond butter
3 tbls honey
3 tbls maple syrup
3/4 cup gluten free oatmeal
2 tbls goji berries
2 tbls chia seeds
1/4 cup sunflower seeds
1/4 cup pepitas
1/4 cup of cashew pieces
1 tbs cocao nibs
 coarse salt (optional)


Cover the bottom of a container with parchment paper, I used a roughly 8x8 inch dish.

Warm the almond butter, honey and maple syrup in a pan over the stove. Remove from heat. Add the oatmeal and stir. Add the remaining ingredients and stir well.

Pour the mixture onto the prepared pan, sprinkle with coarse salt if using, spread and flatten. Place in the refrigerator for a few hours until solid. Cut into bars. Wrap in plastic wrap and wax paper. I like to keep them stored in a container in the fridge.
