This incredible nut-free power bar recipe is made with just 7 healthy ingredients. Better yet? Paleo Cranberry Coconut Power Bars are also gluten-free and grain-free. 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).
Store these nut-free power bars in the refrigerator for up to 1 week.
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 ;-)
