Easy Homemade Energy Bars or Bites- Healthy Energy bars with Oats, Mixed Nuts, Dates and Flax Seeds

Homemade and healthy Energy bars or bites made with mixed nuts, dates and flax seeds…

Making homemade healthy energy bars or bites couldn’t get any easier. These are super healthy and nutritious energy bars that can be enjoyed for breakfast and will help you to kick start your day in a healthy and energetic way.

I have literally stopped buying store brought energy bars, I make these quite often over the weekend, store them in an airtight container and enjoy them during the week for breakfast or as a snack in the late afternoon.

Any kind of mixed nuts can be added, I’ve added cashew nuts & almonds. Crushed pecans and walnuts can also be added. Adding dates is a must as it will help to bind everything together and to be rolled into round or any other shapes.
