Delicious Energy Bars

Delicious Energy Bars



“I just took my energy bars out of the dehydrator and I wanted to show you what I’d like to do.”

Energy bars are very popular and often a quick grab and go for busy people. (That probably includes all of us). I have seen way too many using energy bars as a meal replacement. Not a good idea if you are serious about your health.

Energy bars are best when they become a treat and not a staple. I make mine small to avoid temptation. Using one prior to working out along with alkaline water is the very best option. After class, walking or training once again a small piece along with more alkaline water. (See previous post on healthy drinking water)

Because I am all about helping you along your prevention journey, it needs to be noted again that they are a treat, not a meal.

Energy Bars - Basic Recipe

Ingredients
  • 2 cup barley (soaked 3 days)
  • ¾ cup dates
  • 3T raw honey
  • 1tsp. cinnamon
  • 1tsp. non alcoholic organic vanilla extract
  • 1 cup walnuts soaked & chopped
  • ½ cup almonds soaked 5 & chopped
Instructions
  1. Place barley and dates in the food processor and mix
  2. Add honey, cinnamon, vanilla, almonds, walnuts and mix well.
  3. Place dough on Paraflexx sheets to prepare for the dehydrator.
  4. Tip: Place the dough on Paraflexx sheets that are on a hord surface prior to placing on dehydrator trays.
  5. Dehydrate at about 110 for 6-8 hours. Remove Paraflexx sheet and turn the bars over halfway.
  6. Note: If you do not have a dehydrator yet, and you will soon, bake bars at 250 for about 2-3 hours. Leave the oven slightly open using a towel to prop the door. Check for consistency and moisture.
  7. Place the bars into an air tight container. They will actually stay fresh for weeks. ………if they last that long!

Add honey, cinnamon, vanilla, almonds, walnuts and mix well.

“Hi, my name is Sydney and I’m Elaine’s granddaughter. We are making energy bars and I’m not sure we are going to be able to dehydrate them because they are so good, I’m eating it raw! Yummy!”
~~~~
Place on trays and cut into the size that works best for you. I usually do 1 ½ inch x1 ½ inches.

Devon: Hi, my name is Devon and I’m Elaine’s granddaughter and Sydney’s sister. And as you can see, our energy bars are ready to go in the dehydrator.

Syndey: Hi, Sydney again! As you already know, I’ve been eating the energy bars raw, so not all of mine is going to be able to make it to the dehydrator.
~~~~

Step 4
Dehydrate at about 110 for 6-8 hours. Remove Paraflexx sheet and turn the bars over halfway.
Note: If you do not have a dehydrator yet, and you will soon, bake bars at 250 for about 2-3 hours. Leave the oven slightly open using a towel to prop the door. Check for consistency and moisture.

Step 5
Place the bars into an air tight container. They will actually stay fresh for weeks. ………if they last that long!

  1. Can you tell me why you soak your nuts? I would think with these bars that wouldn’t be necessary? Looking forward to making this, my girls are always grabing energy bars on the run and as a meal replacement. Thanks, debbie

    • Great question Debbie,

      Nuts contain smaller amounts of phytic acid than grains. Their real issue for us is having high amounts of enzyme inhibitors. This can really place a strain on our digestive system.

      Soaking your nuts in warm water will neutralize these enzyme inhibitors, and also help encourage the production of beneficial enzymes.

      Look for Thursday’s post on digestive enzymes!

      Let me know how they turn out.

  2. hi elaine, we realized the dehydrator we received as a gift, and have been using, heats at 160 deg. so we’ll treat ourselves for our birthdays this spring and buy a lower temp dehydrator thru your website. so i see teh dehydrator has 9 shelves. how many flex sheets will we need to start with? is something like 2 practical, or is 9 right away kind of a must? (do you dehydrate with out a flex-tray? and only need a tray when doing somethign like energy bars? if you were dehydrating slices of veggies, would u also need a flex tray? or that would go right on ot the dehyadrator shelf? thanks!
    c

    • Hi Carolyn, You will love the dehydrator. One set of flex sheets is fine. I use according to the recipe instructions. It comes with a starter book but I suggest ordering a book via teh amazon store along with a Permachart on dehyration.
      You can get a dehydrator with less shelves but I gave my first one away and realized that it is a one time purchase so the bigger one was better. It is really fun to use. Let me know how it goes.

  3. ok great. is the book you’d recommend also avail thru your website?
    im using my current dehydrator right now, until i get the new one, even tho my crackers wont be “raw”, because i felt bad that i’ve been wasting the juice pulp. i have to say i never knew or considered that there is a recipe book! thanks for the tip adn if theres a specific book youd recommend let me know! thanks again! ps we’ll be buying a dehydrator thru your site, in may, once we get bday gift money from our parents!

    • Hi, Look at the Amazon Store. I just added a section on dehydration in the book area. Keep an eye out for cool recipes coming.Let us kno whow it goes.

Fresh Air helps Melissa & her boys
Feb 22, 2012 by Melissa Davis

Elaine recommended the fresh air system for us because our boys have asthma and allergies. Since installing the unit, my children have been doing so much better. They rarely ever use their inhalers and they are off all seasonal medications. I also don't believe in flu shots and I am happy to say that my children have not gotten the flu even through the swine flu epidemic. I really believe that ...

No more headaches!
Jan 31, 2012 by Bob LeMay

Upon moving into a new office, I began to have headaches from the new carpet and paint fumes. I purchased an air purifier and within a day and a half carpet and paint fumes disappeared along with my headaches! Our entire staff feels better. It was a natural decision to place two purifiers in our home. Now our office staff and my family enjoy safe clean air. Thank you, Bob LeMay...

A blessing during renovation...
Jan 31, 2012 by Nancy-jo

We love having the Fresh Air Purifier here at the Greater Springfield Chamber of Commerce office. It was quite a blessing during our recent renovations. The first odor to overcome was the harsh chemical smell used to "clean-up" after the asbestos abatement work. Then there was the dust, three months of dust. Now that the work is done, the Fresh Air Purifier keeps our beautiful new office ...

Air purifiers made a HUGE impact!
