Chia Almond Date Bars

Chia Almond Date Bars

Not only a yummy snack but also a way to occupy a 2 year old inside when theres a snow storm outside. Just dumping ingredients into a food processor and pressing buttons. Perfection. Also, the ingredient possibilities are endless! Expect some additions to this post.

3.29.13 Recipe updated and overhauled. I nixed the Raisins and added dates instead. Also added Pecans and Coconut Oil.


  • 1/2 Cup Almonds
  • 1/2 Cup Dates
  • 1/4 Cup Pecans
  • 1 tsp Coconut Oil
  • chia seeds (for the top)


  1. Dump the almonds into the food processor and process for a minute.
  2. Add the dried fruits and process until everything is chopped fine and sticks together when you press it.
  3. Form into bar shape or roll into balls. Pour chia seeds on a plate and press into them.
  4. Store in the fridge.
