Matcha Energy Bars

Matcha Energy Bars

Recipe (for 6 bars)

  • 1¼ cups dates, pitted + roughly chopped
  • 1 cup mixed fruit and nuts (cashews, raisins, pecans etc) 
  • 1 tsp vanilla bean or pure vanilla extract 
  • 2 tsp PureChimp matcha powder + additional for sprinkling 
  • 2 tbsp cacao nibs
  • 1 tsp camu camu powder
  • ½ cup Sesame Seeds

Directions

1. Add dates, nuts, camu camu powder, sesame seeds, vanilla, + 2 tsp matcha powder to a food processor and pulse until well-combined. The mixture should stick together like a dough when pressed. If your mixture is falling apart, add a few more dates and blend again.

2. Add cacao nibs and pulse just enough for cacao to mix in. 

3. Line a small baking dish with parchment paper and add bars to a dish. Use hands or the back of a spoon to press the mixture down until it is compact and smooth. 

4. Sprinkle additional matcha on top and press down with the back of a spoon. 

5. Place in freezer for at least 30 minutes. 

6. Remove bars from the dish by pulling out parchment paper. Cut into bars + store in the fridge for up to 1 week.
