Paleo Bars

Nut bars make for an easy go-to breakfast, a delectable pre-workout snack, or a pick-me-up to beat the afternoon slump. They’re also a great way to get in a healthy dose of protein, fiber, and healthy fats. However, you might be surprised to find that many of these so-called “healthy” nut bars aren’t Paleo-friendly. If they contain peanuts, grains, or processed sugar, you can’t eat them on a Paleo diet. Luckily, you can find plenty of recipes for all-natural paleo nut bars that will satisfy virtually any craving you have.

How to Make Paleo Bars

The Paleo diet is less of a “diet” and more of a lifestyle change. Proponents of this way of eating choose foods that may have been eaten during the Paleolithic era before farming took over. The idea behind the Paleo diet is the belief that humans haven’t adapted to this rapid change in food supply and are better off eating similarly to our ancestors. All types of processed foods, grains, sugar, dairy, and legumes (including peanuts) are avoided.

Fruits, vegetables, nuts, seeds, lean meats, and more are allowed on the Paleo diet. These healthy, all-natural ingredients can be combined to create any flavor combination, especially when it comes to nut bars. Macadamia nuts, almonds, cashews, and pistachios are all fair game. Mix them with dried fruit such as dates, cherries, or berries to add a bit of sweetness without processed sugar. You can even add Paleo-friendly chocolate chips or cocoa to create a decadent, crave-worthy dessert bar.

For another type of Paleo-friendly snack that’s sure to delight, consider our Double Dark Chocolate Bites. They include a rich chocolate ganache filling covered in crunchy cacao nibs and are made with real ingredients and no sugar or carbs.
