Nut Free Power Bars

  • 1/2 cup pumpkin seeds
  • 1/ 2 cup sunflower seeds
  • 1 teaspoons olive oil or cooking spray
  • 1/8 teaspoon salt
  • 1 cup dates, pitted
  • 1 ½ tablespoons water


  1. Spray pan with cooking oil and then add seeds and salt.  On low heat, keep tossing seeds until light brown.
  2. Combine toasted seeds, dates and water in a food processor and puree until mixture starts to stick together. If needed add a bit more water.
  3. Line a square pan with saran wrap letting the saran wrap extend up and over the edges so that when you fold it back over the mixture, it covers the mixture entirely.  
  4. Pour mixture in.  Fold edges of saran wrap over the top of mixture and press down to form a flat even surface. You can snug the mixture up to the edges of the pan, pressing with your hands to form a nice square shape.
  5. Slice into even squares. For best results store in the fridge, although bars can be kept at room temperature.
