If you are trying to cut out processed foods in the new year this recipe is a great start! Filled with creamy peanut butter, nuts, chia seeds, and naturally sweetened with dates. These bars are a home run with my kids and husband so I have no doubt these will satisfy your crew. Perfect to pack in lunch boxes and healthy enough to eat for breakfast on the go. And as always, free of any refined sugar.  Enjoy!

Peanut Butter Chia Bars


  • 1 cup pitted dates(about 12)- *buy dates with pitted inside and remove pits before using.
  • 1/4C heaping creamy peanut butter
  • 1/4C cashews(could sub almond or whatever nuts you have on hand)
  • 2 tbsp cacao powder(linked below)
  • 1 1/2 tbsp chia seeds(linked below)

*Organic ingredients recommended when obtainable. 


  1. Combine all ingredients in food processor and pulse until sticky texture is formed. Take a piece of parchment paper and line a small baking sheet. Mine is 7”x9”. Form into one large  ball and roll onto parchment paper. Or you could alternatively roll into bite size balls if you want.
  2.  Place in fridge and let firm for 30-45 minutes. Remove and cut into bars, store in fridge for the week.
