Raw fruit & nut bar


I have been craving  a raw  bar I had many moons ago but I couldn’t remember the name of the bar or what was in it, all I remembered was that it was delicious and I wanted one right now. I just did my monthly winco bulk bin haul so I set out to try to recreate the flavor I was craving.

I may not have perfectly recreated the delicious treat I remembered but I think this might be even better. packed full of yummy seeds, nuts, fruits and even spirulina these raw bars are incredibly good for you.  They were a hit with the family especially after I cut some into heart shapes for the little one.

Next time  I think I am going to make a cashew, raw honey and  strawberry raw bar, yum! Be sure to store these in the fridge to keep them fresh and delicious!
