Cranberry Coconut Power Bars are not only gluten-free and grain-free, they are nut-free to boot. Eat them after you go to your CrossFit workout, or if you’re more of a middle aged woman such as myself who prefers sleep to exercise, eat them after a long walk in the foothills, or a restorative yoga class.
I’m using Steve’s unsweetened dried cranberries for this recipe, which is based upon my Cherry Vanilla Power Bar recipe. I came to know Steve this past spring and have become a fan since we first met (via email). Of course it is not surprising that an Italian in New Jersey and a New York Jew would have affinity for one another. Steve is an astute businessman, supporting exercise and fitness for lower income children and underprivileged youth –who’s not a fan of that?! Steve is candid, smart and dedicated –what more need I say.
Here’s that Paleo Power Bar recipe for those of you who are tough (the CrossFitters) and those of you who are more mellow about your exercise (like myself).
Makes 25 bars –store in the refrigerator
What is your favorite form of exercise? Do you CrossFit? Would you lose sleep to workout? Leave a comment and let me know. I know a bunch about your food likes and habits, and now I’m curious about your activity levels…or lack thereof ;-)
