Raw Fruit and Nut Protein Bars


I’m currently doing the amazing 28 day Ultimate Fat loss Programme from Pure Form Fitness. It’s a fantastic eating programme with natural supplements and education and involves eliminating various allergens from your diet for the first 14 days. So as a result there’s been no baking this weekend but I was inspired by Gabby’s recipe at the veggienook and decided to make a programme friendly snack. It’s a combination of my raw cocoa-orange balls and Gabby’s recipe and it’s delish! I was sort of making it up as I went along so I’m sorry for the measurements but to be honest you can just adjust these as you like until you get the texture and taste you like – if you like more apricots throw some more in, if you are a nut fan up the nuts! simple! 🙂

handful of raw cashews

handful of raw almonds (normal or blanched – your choice)

5 – 8 dried dates

small handful of raisins

small handful of dried, unsweetened apricots (the nice juicy ones!)

A good handful of shelled hemp

I – 2 scoops of Pure Protein Powder (vanilla)

a squeeze of fresh lemon juice

Pop all the ingredients into a food processor and blitz until it forms a sticky dough/paste. Adjust the quantities if necessary – if it is too moist add some more nuts and shelled hemp, if too dry had a date or two, or an apricot. I tried to make this into bars – they’re a wee bit soft but they work ok! Line a tupperware box with clingfilm and then press the mixture in to it. Place in the fridge and then cut and eat whenever you need an extra protein boost, or just a nice yummy snack!

  1. Your version looks and sounds tasty! Good luck with your program! I am doing a cleanse at the moment and therefore did a complete 14 day detox at the beginning (no grains, sweeteners, except stevia, caffeine, alcohol, soy or gluten). It was so rewarding! I hope you experience the same thing 🙂

    • Thanks 🙂 This is the third time I’ve done this detox and I love it! I lose body fat, cm and kg every time. In week one I’ve lost nearly a kilo and over 1% body fat and 7.5cm (from various parts!). I feel great on it 🙂 It’s brilliant doing this sort of thing isn’t it? And the best bit is we can still have delicious treats 🙂
