These breakfast power bars pack a big punch of protein and fibre, and they're perfect for grabbing when you're on the go. 


  • 1 cup whole almonds, toasted

  • 1 cup pepitas

  • 1 cup dried cranberries

  • 1 cup chopped, pitted Medjool dates


  • WRAP a 9 × 5-in. loaf pan with overhanging plastic.

  • WHIRL almonds in a food processor, scraping down sides if needed, until a ball starts to form, about 4 min. Add pepitas, cranberries and dates. Whirl until well combined, 2 to 3 more min. Press mixture firmly into the bottom of the prepared pan. Cover with plastic wrap and chill until firm, about 1 hour.

  • REMOVE from pan and cut into bars. Keep refrigerated up to 2 weeks.
