Apple Cinnamon Chia Bars
Apple cinnamon chia bars are a hearty, chewy snack recipe that’s made in the food processor. Just six ingredients and a few minutes are all it takes to whip up healthy snacks for the week! This recipe is dairy-free, vegan, and naturally sweetened.
Prep Time 5 minutes
Total Time 5 minutes
- 8 whole, pitted Medjool dates
- 1/2 cup dried apple slices
- 1/4 cup cashews
- 1/4 cup walnuts
- 2 tbsp chia seeds
- 3/4 tsp ground cinnamon or more to taste
Add all ingredients to a food processor and process in 15-20 second bursts until the mixture resembles a slightly sticky, cohesive ball.
Place mixture on a sheet of plastic wrap and press down until it's in a square or rectangular shape, about 1/2" thick. Refrigerate for about 45 minutes (or longer) to help it harden.
Once hardened to your liking, cut into 8 slices (or however may you like). Bars are best stored in the refrigerator.
The dried apples I used have no sugar added. They have just one ingredient - apples!
I store these bars in the refrigerator, but I've kept one out for about 5-6 hours before eating and it was still great. Just a little softer.
