Healthy Living With TAU: Energy bars

Try your hand at making these wholesome, healthy snacks.

5 organic eggs

2 ½ cups (625ml) of organic spelled flour

1 teaspoon (5ml) baking soda

1 teaspoon (5ml) clove

1 teaspoon (5ml) cinnamon

2 cups (500ml) chopped pitted dates

1 cup (250ml) coarsely chopped walnuts

1 cup (250ml) coarsely chopped almonds

1 cup (250ml) of unpasteurized honey

1 cup (250ml) of sucanat

1/2 cup (125ml) of cooled coffee or organic juice

1/4 cup (65ml) organic soya or sunflower oil

1 tablespoon (15ml) plain yogurt


- Preheat the oven to 300 degrees F (150 degrees C.)

- Separate the yolks from the egg whites. Put aside.

- In a large bowl, combine flour, baking soda, dates, walnuts and almonds.

- In another bowl, combine the honey and the sucanat. Add egg yolks and mix well. Then add the coffee (or juice), oil and yogurt. Mix well.

- Incorporate the liquid mixture into the flour mixture. Mix well.

- Beat the eggs white in firm snow and add to the dough mixture.

- Pour dough into two pre-greased bread pans of about 4.5 X 10 inches (10cm X 25cm). Bake for about 60 minutes or until the blade of a knife comes out clean.

- Let cool before slicing about 1 inch (2cm). By drying, the slices become sweeter and have a texture that has the advantage of not crumbling. In the open air, they are consumed as such or soaked hot tea.

- These bars can be stored without refrigeration.
