{recipe} No-Bake Date Nut Snack Bars

Are you prone to snack attacks? Heaven forbid I’m not carrying a bag of nuts or crackers with me at all times – because I get seriously hangry and it’s not pretty. In an attempt to make things a little more interesting and a little more healthy, I have been experimenting with some snack bars. These are the simplest and the best – with just dates, nuts, coconut, and a sprinkling of flaky sea salt.

These are great for an airplane ride, hike, or post-gym snack – or just to carry in your purse in case of emergency. You just pulse everything together in the food processor, press it into a pan, refrigerate and cut. And then: snack!

Oh, and this recipe is also Paleo and Whole30 compliant – in case you’re into that kind of thing! Is it snack time yet?
