Raw Cacao Energy Bars

Raw Cacao Energy Bar

This raw cacao energy bars recipe is designed to optimize your athletic function with a healthy blend of complex carbohydrates, protein, fats and sugars. These nutrients come from the base blend of nuts, flax and dates, which are combined in a ratio designed to provide long-lasting energy and satiation. The addition of CocoMojo powder, an organic raw cacao and guarana-based superfood blend, provides a potent source of antioxidants and muscle-fueling nutrients, as well as a sustainable energy boost.



  1. Place the Coco Gogo, flax seeds and cashews in a food processor. Process or pulse until the flax and cashews are finely chopped; the mixture should have a coarse crumbly texture.
  2. Add the almonds and dates. Process until dates and almonds are finely chopped and the mixture begins to pull together.
  3. Add the yacon syrup and coconut oil and process until just combined. The mixture should pull together into a ball and/or hold together when pressed between the palms.
  4. Line a small cookie sheet or baking dish with parchment paper.
  5. Place the mixture in the parchment-lined dish and use clean hands or a flat spatula to press it firmly and evenly into a 3/4 to 1-inch thick patty. Cut into 1 to 2 –inch pieces (or as otherwise desired).
  6. Wrap in plastic wrap and refrigerate for 20 minutes or up to 7 days until ready to eat. If desired, wrap each piece individually for easy packing. These bars make great lunchbox treats or on-the-trail snacks.
