Chilly Spiced Goji Bars (Raw-Vegan)

If you are travelling for work, or generally staying late at work, and you are not sure about the choice of food that you are going to have, it is always a good idea to pack some healthy alternatives from home. A bunch of apples, home made trail-mix with raw nuts/seeds/dry-fruits, home made energy bars etc. can always be handy. Here's a quick recipe for a spicy and nutritious energy bar.

  • Dried goji Berries - 1/2 cup
  • Medjool Dates - 10-12
  • Red chilly - 2-3 (control according to your spice level)
  • Sea salt - a pinch
  • Coconut oil - 1 tbsn
  • Chopped raw nuts - 1 cup (Raw cashews, almonds, walnuts or a mix)

  • Add goji berries, dates, chillies and salt into a dry blender jar and blend till you get a coarse mixture and everything start to bind together.
  • Transfer to a bowl and add coconut oil and chopped nuts and mix well.
  • Press into a shallow rectangular glass dish and keep refrigerated for couple of hours.
  • Cut into bars. This makes about 10 mini-bars.
