Coffee Chocolate RXBAR

If you have yet to try an RXBAR, you’re missing out! These are exactly as advertised: protein packed with no B.S. ingredients. Unfortunately, they are pretty expensive ($2-3/bar), but they can be made easily at home.

Just six ingredients and a food processor is all you’ll need for this nutritious, raw snack. These bars are chocolaty, coffee-infused, protein packed, and nutty.

COFFEE CHOCOLATE RXBAR

Prep time: 10 minutes

Author: Envi Eats

Makes: 8 balls or squares

INGREDIENTS

  • 1/3 cup cup packed & pitted dates
  • 1/3 cup raw almonds
  • 1/4 cup unflavored egg white protein powder
  • 1/4 cup raw cashews
  • 4 tsp raw cacao nibs or cacao powder
  • 1 tsp espresso powder (sub cold brewed coffee or espresso, but add less water)
  • 2-4 tsp water

INSTRUCTIONS

  1. Add all ingredients to a food processor, and pulse until a dough is formed. Add enough water so that the dough sticks together when you press it between your fingers (I added about 3 tsp). Add less water if you are using espresso or cold brewed coffee.
  2. Roll into tight balls or press into a pan and cut to desired size.
  3. Store in the refirdgerator for up to a week, or on the counter top for up to 3 days!
