4 Ingredient Ginger Snap Nutrition Bars

Print

I mix these do it yourself bars for my son and his friends. I think it takes less time to do than to buy them at the store, they’re that easy (and have you seen the lines at Whole Foods?). These have a kick from fresh ginger, a healthy anti-inflammatory bonus.

They’re my favorite grab-to-go snack too…and a whole lot better than some of the supposedly healthy bars out there.

Further Food Commentary:

Although a little denser than the lemon bar because of the pecans, this gingersnap bar would also make a great snack. I appreciate the minimal ingredients, so you know exactly what you're eating. You can whip up this bar in no time and have a great snack on hand that you can feel good about eating.

Ingredients

1 cup mixed almonds and pecans
1 cup dates

    These were delicious. I just made them for my daughter who is coming home from college this week. But they are going to be all gone by then! They are so easy to make though. I may try to substitute walnuts for pecans next time.

      You could definitely do that, however walnuts are a more bitter taste.. Then again, if you love walnuts, (and they are such amazing brain food!) then go right ahead!
