The advantages of food bars as nutrition supplements are that they consume little pack space, and they are at hand when energy levels slip, there is not time for a meal on the trail, or bad weather precludes food preparation.

The reason is that even the healthiest energy bars provide a limited nutrient profile, are very calorie dense, and have a low satiety index, so they quickly turn from a positive to a negative when relied on too heavily during the day.

  • Well I want to know if he said Place everything in a food processor concerning the first step do you add the water with the dates? If anybody knows the answer I really appreciate it if you respond with a yes or no. Thanks

  • I made this with chocolate peanut butter n came out super….also added sesame seeds…n sunflower seeds….thanks for the recipe….hunger savoiur….amazing flavor n healthy….thanks Aarti.

  • I don’t comment often on youtube but I wanted to let you know that I really appreciate this video. I actually am vegan since about a year or so. I still watch your videos because I like your skills and your wit. The part about the hybrids in the parking lot made me giggle. Thanks for this recipe and including something vegan:) Not all of us are preachy and we very much enjoy some good food just as everyone else.

  • For all you calorie counters such as my self, I made this and added honey roasted almonds, pecans and a few macadamia nuts, and put this into a 9×9 pan totaled 1,515 calories for the whole pan. Now. Cut that into 6 large bars? That’s just about 250 calories per bar. Not too shabby.

  • Thanks for the video. I made these after watching your video. Bars were really very tasty but when I cut them, these are broken. Thoda bikhre bikhre ho rahe hain. Can you please tell me why it is so?

  • These chewy bars turned out great! My family loved it and gave me the permission to make more! Usually they never like stuff I make, but they loved this. I’m happy. Thank you ma’am

  • I’ll tell you why it’s cheaper just to buy sugar cubes they do give you energy plus diabetes two and cancer cells thrive on glucose the more sugar faster the tumor grows oatmeal and weed are carbohydrates lots of sugarGoogle it

  • Hi Aarti,I really loved it,but am a diabetic patient,can I have it this or not, because my doctor and sister’s says you don’t eat honey and date, please reply me thank you ������

  • Hey thank you looks awesom… just wanted to know alternative for peanyt butter… am allergic to peanuts…. also i thin honey should never be heated. It loses its value….

  • awsome filling recipy.but ifI ate so much fat.I would get so fat,I do not know why I gain so much weight eating a lot of nuts and fat.but love your videos.this is a whole dinner,will make the recipy anyway

  • Hello Gemma, I really love making your recipes as I made these granola bars I like them a lot but I want little less sweet can u tell me how much I should take honey and brown sugar? Please guide me I really like the caramel taste.

  • Sorry first time trying to make this granola bars, I don’t think I put enough liquid you didn’t say how much to put. Came out to soft. I have the Recipe so I’ll try it again tomorrow. Thanks

  • I know you said quick cooking oats work really well with this recipe but I have old fashioned oats in my pantry would that still work as well?

  • I think I’ve only ever followed youtube recipes like 3 times in my life, and this was one of them. I love these! I was looking for a snack between meals and found myself often eating chocolate bars or cookies from the cafes nearby, and I wanted to make something that satisfied my sweet tooth without feeling guilty, and these fit that perfectly. I was skeptical about the dates because I’ve never liked eating them, but they create just the right sweetness balance here. Looking forward to trying your other stuff!

  • Just made it and i also added psilluim hulks, some nuts, cinnamon and i didnt add penut butter, but it turned out really good, thank you!!!

  • I love your voice so much that when I hear it I can’t stop imagining you telling me what position to be in
    while we’re in the sack. With the jokes included of course. Sorry, just my weird fantasy.

  • It’s Father’s Day 2020!:) Wanted to do some baking for my dad and he likes granola and peanuts so I thought let me make him homemade granola bars!:) Thanks so much for this simple and easy recipe.I packed it up with oats,peanuts,flaxseeds & raisins with some chocolate chips and a chocolate and peanut butter drizzle on top.Don’t know how it taste and won’t be trying it cause I actually don’t like nuts on a whole but my mom tried the batter and she said it was really good lol.Hope my dad enjoys it!!!:) Happy Father’s Day to Mr.Stafford and to all the Bigger Bolder Baking fathers tehe.Have a great day all:D

  • This is so ridiculous… I have tried for 2 months since I got a food processor to figure something out, and I was adding all kinds of stuff and either making chalk or pudding… THIS will be my go to recipe… I had no idea that processing that much would turn it into a bar that is storable.. Thanks!!!

  • Thank you so much for everything I loved everything you do it’s amazing ��can ask please if you don’t mind about your ingredients spoons where can I get thanks again ❤️

  • Recently I google to know much more about this paleo plan I heard about via a buddy who just drop a whopping Thirteen pounds! Visit Google and search “loso shocking plan”, you will know the things i`m talking about. They have a lot of tasty-looking recipes I am fired up to try.

  • Please link the amounts of each ingredient for proportion or say it while doing it. So cumbersome all your recipes to find out how much to add

  • er… i like the recipes and stuff but the whole “chemicals are evil” thing would be more authentively predented if you would try out putting on just a little bit less make up ^^’
    i Really like your channel vut something like that bothers me:/

  • I don’t think I will like that. But now I wonder what is the difference between a date and a fig? I have dates. But I still do not think I will like that blended together.

  • I watched this,I got up and I made them ��,they are chilling I’m in love ♥️,thank you so much,I’m glad I came across it channel ��

  • Can you make these in bulk and freeze them? Would they stay good for a while that way? That would be perfect hiking food to always have ready.

  • I am definitely making those this weekend, they are exactly what I’ve been looking for! by the way there is something very soothing and hypnotic about your voice

  • I really like your videos, I’m going to try the vegan keto food, after having an emergency hysterectomy at the age of 52 and gaining 10lbs on my 5’1 100lb frame I had to change my ways of eating. I hadn’t eaten poultry or beef for the last 3 years only shell fish and fish, but for the last year I went strictly Vegan and tho I have lost 5 lbs I think my vegan diet has too many carbs. So thank you for your great videos. Dani

  • Can I use dates instead of raisin? N can I use cashew? I love your channel very much have been watching for 2 years ❤… Love you Gemma

  • I wonder if one could sell a product with the argument that it:
    has an easy to calculate amount of calories.
    lets say 10 balls are enough for the average human eat 9 or 8 to loose weight.
    And it contains everything you need.

  • my daughter has just made these, she has a lot of food intolerances and buying these in the shops are expensive and difficult to get her ones she can have. these were not only fast and easy to make, but we know exactly what is in them, and she can experiment on different fillings, they will be fantastic to take with us on our long bike rides.

  • I hope people don’t actually think of this as super healthy since your recipe itself is around 3200 calories which is more than what a very active man can consume in a day without getting into a surplus. I don’t think people will just eat 1 or 2 balls (if this recipe makes 12 balls then each one will have around 260 calories) so its better to find a lower-calorie alternative without including stuff like peanut butter and coconut oil and instead just use guar gum for mixing and powdered peanut butter with more protein. Also excess of flax seeds isn’t really needed as whole oats usually have enough fibre:)

  • we make these twice a week and enhance them by substituting 10g of almond meal with 10 g protein powder and 1 tbsp of cacao with maca powder. we also add some pure vanilla extract and always prepare a double batch:0 Thanks so much for this recipe!

  • Hey
    Loved these recipes
    Can you please make diet related recipes. Please!
    I follow only your recipes as I think they are the most authentic and easy ones.
    And I would be really delighted if you just upload some more healthy recipes.
    Thanks!

  • According to my calculations the total calories would be 3786 kcal and the macros: 508g carbs (53%), 156g fat (37%), 90g protein (10%).
    Im curious how many balls did he make, that way we can calculate the calories and macros for each ball based on the info i provided above.

  • I think I’ll make these bars, and wrap each one with a baking paper sheet for an easy way of eating without chocolate on my fingers, and carry them in a container.

  • Let me say it like that: Only the peanut butter has 630 calories or even more, so how is your plan to lose weight with those? Even though the oats are having 400 calories

  • I am 2 weeks into the keto lifestyle and so excited to find you and your recipes. Going to get the ingredients I need to try these out,

  • I have been watching your videos all day. You are SO eloquent, informative & I could just listen to your soothing voice on & on. Your recipes look amazing & I am SO looking forward to making some of them. Thank you for all your time & effort to share these! <3 All my best, Kari.

  • How can oats possibly be good for you? When you consume it… it breaks down into sugarsGlucose and Fructose… so your going to have a sugar spike… then a sugar low then cravings for more sugar so ultimately you’ll end up a fat git.

  • I tried this recipe. It was really good and just as easy as it looks with a food processor. This makes about 12 squares. Roughly each serving will be about 142 calories a square. You can add chia seeds and hemp hearts for plant protein and omegas. There will be added calories if you add these little goodies. Adjust accordingly…
    Thank you for this simple recipe!

  • Hi Aarti, can you please help me with a substitute for Honey? We don’t eat Honey..can we do anything with jaggery and How?
    Thanks for a healthy recipe!

  • Just saw your amazing recipe….my daughter is allergic to peanuts aka peanut butter…Wht can we use instead…pls will be very grateful ��…thnx a lot

  • Just made these! Put mine in a baking dish and cut bars, then stuck them in the freezer. I added mini chocolate chips. My kids and husband go crazy over these.

  • Wooooow, I was buying these so called energy balls before, which is expensive!!! thank you so much for sharing this simple recipe. I am making a batch on my day off and they are the best after work, healthy snack that I enjoy on my way back home:-))))

  • Easy recipe. Thank you for sharing. I learn a lot from you. This is a hard time with covid 19 and we have to stay home but I love to stay home and watch you on your channel. Thanks again.

  • can I suggest you something can you go eat at texas road house ask for 16oz ribe eye medium fell the taste and teach us how to cook the same exact taste pls thank you

  • I used this video to help me create my own version! <3 I did 1 cup dates, 1 cup dried cranberries and 1 cup cashews. I then added 1/2 cup dark chocolate chips (vegan). They turned out great! The chocolate melted in and infused with the flavour, but I think next time I'll fold them in at the end:). Thanks for the tips! I love Larabars, but they get very costly! So this was a nice compromise.

  • Hi, i am following the keto way of eating, non vegan. I just made your bars and they are AMAZING! I used pecans to keep my macros down. They taste very,very expensive. Thank you so much for sharing your recipe and I cant wait to make your flatbread ��

  • When you said rice crispies, I think I heard you right, but is that Rice Krispies cereal or something else? Unless it was due to the close up, they looked longer than the cereal, but the cereal seems to be all I can find online. Thanks in advance for your help.

  • I am DEF making these to take with me in the car!!
    I think I will use some MCT oil, tho, just to up the energy potential. And I’ll use the nuts/seeds I like and have. I like

    ILOVE2FeelGOOD
    ‘s suggestions, so I might try some of those. I’m using alot of orange extract lately and vanilla. I suspect this will be good here too. And I’ve just found out about using essential oils instead of extracts. I have to do more research, but that looks promising!
    Thank you!

  • No butter. gross. And anytime honey is heated it kills all the good things honey has to offer. I’m watching this just to get the basic idea but this has many flaws, IMHO. Thanks for sharing, tho.

  • Ah, I made these a few years ago when I was first learning about avoiding processed sugar and flour. My favorite variation I made was chocolate with dried cherries replacing some of the dates. Very tasty.

  • they look good, but i don’t eat gluten.. all grains have gluten, without the gluten, it cannot germinate and sprout. If oats, corn, rice or amaranth didn’t have gluten we wouldn’t have grains. A botanical impossibility.. Gluten from grains is what causes all auto-immune diseases. i use 3 cups nuts, (pecans, walnuts, almonds) with 1 cup dates, 1/4 cacao powder, and coconut. Cranberries are great.. my recipe is one to try.. Almond butter is a nice addition, just cut back on the majool dates..

  • Gemma hopefully you see my comment

    Does pancake syrup (low sugar) work, replace Honey. Guess I’m looking for a low sugar version ��

    Also craisins taste better, not as sweet as raisins.

  • I just made these with my mom, so good!! The only thing was, we have a smaller food processor so the recipe itself was too big for it. The recipe is a good amount, so next time we’ll split the ingredients and do two small batches so it gets mixed easier.

  • I had seen this video when it came out a few years ago but never tried to make it. And today, I made the chocolate granola bars and they turned out to be the BEST GRANOLA BARS I HAVE EVER HAD. Thanks to you, Gemma! This recipe is a BOMB! ❤️❤️❤️❤️

  • Love your recipe & I realise cling film is easy but not too good for the environment and land fill. Perhaps old fashioned grease proof paper. Personally I’m doing all I can to rid my home of plastics. Not easy but it’s my promise to mother earth. Love your videos. Thank you x

  • If the purpose of the cherries is to bind, can I use tahini instead.  Also, I think I would add cocoa or cacao powder to this and dehydrate it  thoroughly.  The bars will last indefinitely.

  • I probably missed it but definitely mix your more liquid ingredients together first otherwise you’ll be squishing forever to get the peanut butter incorporated if you dont have a processor. If you have RA thats not fun.

  • Healthy loving this for my family and friends and enemies and children and grandchildren ������ lots of love from London Lawrence Simon Anne Marie ❤️������

  • Thank you for this great recipe. I’ll make this.
    May I use chia seeds instead of flax seeds? If yes, what quantity? Thank you so much.

  • Can I replace the coconut oil with olive oil? I am a student and I love this recipe, but the budget does not really follow with this ingredient x’) Thanks!

  • I made these energy bars and they were really good, my only complaint was that the ingredients where I live were very expensive, especially the dried cherries which cost about $6 for only 4-5 ounces

  • Hey, I have a question on recipe changes, basically exactly this but hazelnuts instead of almonds, and add cacao powder to make like a nutella bar

  • This video was very helpful! I would greatly appreciate if you could tell us how many grams of total carbohydrates are in the lovely energy bars?

  • I just discovered your youtube channel and fell in love with it instantly! Subscribed!! Can we use dried figs instead of dried cherries in this recipe?

  • I’m 174 now I’ve lost 50 lbs. but I was flagging. Finding your channel is a life saver. I have environmental disorder with complex problems..I’m in a seniors home with meals I cannot eat…but slowly have been eating more food that makes me very ill. Now I am using your info…very seriously

  • I made this recipe today, but didnt have all of the ingredients. I used khalas dates, pistachios, pumpkin seeds, and dried cranberries. they turned out amazing!!!! Thank you so much for sharing this recipe! They taste like the inside of a fig newton cookie! I’m going to try adding some cocoa powder next time! Please keep making videos! Much love from South Korea:)

  • Hey there, this is Afrin from Bangladesh. I have a little query: how long will these bars remain well in a container outside of the refrigerator? Please do reply.

  • I fucking hate raw vegans. Thanks for throwing a vegan recipe out there. I can’t make most of the recipes you make, but I love your channel

  • Where are you from? Lol I love your accent! Anywhere near UK? Elegantly presented as a real human being ( unlike those others:)!! ) I may just have found the road to my own keto experience! Thanks so much! PS Wanna go somewhere nice?

  • Look up Adventist World Radio, Unlocking Bible Prophecies with Cami Oetman. If it’s in the Bible, I believe it. If it’s not in the Bible, it’s not for me.

  • Where can we get cranberry? Also any alternative to it? In Mumbai any specific stores I will get cranberries like big bazar, hypercity?

  • This looks like an easy and delicious recipe!
    Question: how do I make blueberry yogurt granola bars out of these?
    Could you please share the yogurt coating recipe for the same? Thanks in advance!

  • Today, I made the first batch of the energy bars by following your recipe with macadamia nut filling and pumpkin seed topping but I skipped sweetener (because I am not sure stevia doesn’t make my glucose rise). My husband and I loved the energy bars. I haven’t really had deserts since I started Keto from August 2019. I am so grateful to learn this from your channel. I will check your other recipes and see if there are other simple ones to follow (as I am not a good cook). Thanks a lot, Fan for sharing what you know with us. Btw, I have been a vegetarian since 1996.

  • 50 grams is 1/4 cup Incase like myself you needed to know ��
    Love your recipes for easy, quick and healthy breakfast bars especially….

  • Fascinated with the delicious almost carb free diet. Perfect recipes for me, just must tweek some of the veggies. Thanks for the detailed instructions. Love watching you try your food and the enjoyment. Thanks so much for the recipes. Love the english/asian accent and the timbre of your voice…very pleasant to hear! Subscribed.

  • How do you store these? (In the fridge or outside on the counter?) Thanks for the video, these bars turned out really good and delicious! ��❤

  • Thank you again for this great recipe, I am gonna try it. The only thing what I would add: I love cheshews as well, because they are very sweet, but I have just learnt from Dr. Ekberg on you-tubecheshews are not so good in a keto diet. First of all high in carbs, and the Omega 3 and 6 ratio also over 1:4 what means better to avoid. The best choise according to dr. Ekberg Macadamia and walnuts and you can eat pumpkin seeds as well. I have started my keto diet only 20 days ago, so I am trying to follow the instuctions. So I am measuring everything and counting caloria ratios. But luckily this energy bar can be done with other seeds as well. It will be sweet anyway, cos the stevia. Thank you again. Best regards Heavenly Angel. Love your way of talking. Calming and pleasant. Anyway your whole personality is very likeable.

  • Hi Sasha, I found your channel few days ago and I love your healthy recipes with ingredients almost everybody have at home or they are not hard to find or pay. I will try some of them for sure. Thanks again. Greetings

  • Thank you for sharing your vegan keto recipes. I discovered your channel yesterday and I’m a new “fan”! Can’t wait for you to post your first yoga video. ��

  • Is it possible to use Quacker’s Instant Oats for this?
    Just wanna to use that instead coz I bought one that’s too big for my actual consumption

  • Hello; I’d like to thank you for your magical recipes ; I tried this recipe and it succeeded so delicious �� ; I appropriate your great work ����❤️

  • Dates seem to be a trend in your videos…I’m not saying that’s a bad thing, it’s just that I love dates but I break out in rashes whenever I eat them:(

  • I love her she’s so soothing when she talks and I can’t wait to make these i’m not keto but i’ve been wanting to start for my kids so they’ll kick the sugar craze

  • My date purée has turned out very runny. I’m hoping if I add a tradition oat mix plus peanut butter powder they will still turn out okay. Otherwise I will try and soak more dates but with hardly any water to add to the original amount.

  • Great vegan recipe. On my second batch. Any suggestions about how to make if a little less ‘melty’ in this heat wave we’re having in the UK?

  • Quick question: How well do these hold up on hikes? I am curious because I don’t want these delicious little bars to melt in my bag along the way haha
