Superfoods Almond Butter Bars

Superfoods Almond Butter Bars satisfy your mid-afternoon cravings and are a super healthy snack prep!

Sometimes you want a snack that just hits the spot and gives you a lot of crunch, but without sacrificing your health goals. These superfood almond butter bars give you all of that and then some. And it doesn't feel like you're eating bird food.... you know what we're talking about here, right? When you've got a snack that's healthy and feel virtuous but also doesn't really hit the spot because it's just nuts and seeds. However, this is different, thanks to the balanced fat, protein, and fiber macros!

The best part? It's a no-bake situation. You just press all the ingredients together in a pan and then stick them in the fridge for a couple of hours to set before slicing.

But enough nutrition talk. We all know superfoods are super and loaded with antioxidants and all sorts of other goodies, right? Let's figure out how to make these.

How to Serve and Store Superfoods Almond Butter Bars

These will keep best in an airtight container at room temperature for up to 5 or 6 days. You can freeze them if desired, as long as they're wrapped well and in an airtight container or freezer bag, for up to 3 months. Let them thaw a bit before you try eating them, though! You can thaw them at room temperature. Wrap them in foil or stash them in a container for a mid-afternoon snack, or pack them in your lunch, or someone else's!

Substitutions and Alterations

There's a fair degree of flexibility in this recipe.

Use peanut butter, cashew butter, or seed butter if desired.

If you can't find dried mulberries, as they're not always easy to find, and they can be expensive, use dried blueberries, cherries, or cranberries instead. They still have a lot of antioxidants and so they're still "superfoods." You could even use something like dried mango or apricots, but you'd need to chop them up pretty finely so they're evenly distributed.

Use sunflower seeds if desired instead of pumpkin seeds, or flax seeds instead of chia. Or play with the measurements/proportions of ingredients and swap out some of the chia for flax, or some of the pumpkin seeds for sunflower seeds. It'll still be delicious!

Use maple syrup or agave nectar instead of honey. Swap the coconut sugar for regular brown sugar if that's all you've got or if it's what you prefer.

Tip for Using Coconut Oil

We've added a bit of coconut oil as an optional ingredient. If the mix feels too dry and you need to hold it together a bit, melt some coconut oil and mix it into these ingredients. It should help things stay together more easily once you set them in the fridge.
