Yummy Raw Energy Bars

When you want to make some healthy cookies this is one of those go to recipes I like to use to make a delicious treat.

This is a divine little recipe that I have come across a couple of different ways to make these easy healthy cookies. You can choose to skip adding the 3/4 cup of hot water to the mixture and just make them completely raw cookies. I have done it both ways. I just prefer the softer texture of the oats when I use the hot water which softens the oats. Try it both ways and discover which way you like them best.


    • 2 1/2 cups old-fashioned organic quick oats
    • ½ cup whole flax seed
    • ¼ cup organic raw cacao powder
    • 3/4 cup raw almond butter
    • ½ cup agave
    • ½ tbsp spirulina (I once put in a few teaspoons thinking more would be better, it was not a good idea)
    • 3/4 cup hot water (can omit if you choose to have the bars raw)
    • Optional: In a coffee grinder or Vitamix, blend up a 1/2 cup of oats or nuts of your choice to dust the energy balls
    • Optional: Add 2-3 tbsp Hemp seeds


  • Mix ingredients all together.
  • Spread the mixture out in a 9 x 13 cake pan and cover for an hour or so to let them set up in the fridge. Take the cake pan of cookies and score/cut the mixture into squares. *These cookies are nice and gooey treats to eat right now, but to help keep the cookies from sticky, so I like to take each square cookie and roll it in the powder nuts and or oats.Some additional options to consider adding:
  • 1/4 cup of sunflower seeds
  • 2 Tbsp of sesame seeds
  • 1 Tbsp of chia seeds
  • Add 1/2 cup chopped walnuts or pecans
  • Sprinkle a dash of cinnamon or vanilla powder. These little raw cookies are easy to store in a zip lock bag and kept in the refrigerator for up to a week or you can put half in the freezer for a treat next week.

These are one of our favorite little raw bars that we can take on the go or enjoy anytime. I hope you give these tasty little healthy treats a try and have fun adding other nutritious options to your own mix.

Take a few minutes and whip up your own healthy treats and you might pass on those snack packages at the store.
