I don’t know about you, but I love healthy snack bars! I always have them with me when I’m doing sports or going on a road trip. Suppose you combine them with fruits instead of chocolate. In that case, there is no reason to feel guilty about eating them because they are the perfect nutritious snack. 

 

dried figs, energy bar

 

I love this particular healthy fig bar recipe because it is vegan and has only 9 ingredients, and the healthy ones at that: nuts, dried figs, and some delicious maple syrup.

Some delicious store-bought energy bars out there taste great but are filled with lots of sugars, preservatives, additives, and other unwanted ingredients. There’s nothing quite like a freshly made walnut and fig energy Bar. Especially, one that you can make in minutes, tastes like heaven, makes you feel satisfied and full and provides lasting energy that you need to get through your day.
