If you're stuck somewhere and need a nutritional pick-me-up, bars can be a great option. But they can also be expensive (costing upward of $5 depending on where you purchase them) and often include a ton of hard-to-pronounce ingredients. After experimenting with and tasting pretty much every vegan energy bar out there, searching for a cleaner, higher-protein bar that had ingredients I could actually say, it occurred to me that I could make them at home, save a bunch of money, and rest easy knowing where they came from.
Here are a few of my favorite super-easy and delicious recipes. These bars won't weigh you down, and they'll give you the energy you need to tackle your busy daily life. Most require no cooking, and all of them can be stored in an airtight container for up to a week or wrapped individually in parchment paper and stored in the refrigerator or freezer for any time you are on the go.
