10 Homemade Nakd Bars Style Recipes That Won't Break the Bank
Nakd bars are becoming increasingly popular and are sold widely in an extensive range of shops. With their ever growing popularity, the makers are constantly developing new and unique flavours to keep up with the snack bar market.
Hungry, health conscious people are inclined to pick their nutty goodness over any other rivals due to their natural, unprocessed ingredients. My lunch breaks usually consist of scouring the shelves of Holland and Barrett looking for the next flavour to try. Unsurprisingly, it’s not very cost effective on my part and I tend to by 3 or more at a time.
I looked into making my own homemade nakd bars by following the recipes on the back of the packs. Cashew Cookie is my favourite flavour and also happens to be one of the flavours with the least ingredients. I think it was literally dates and cashews!
When you get the consistency right they taste delicious. Make sure you have a good food processor. I tried making them in my boyfriend’s smoothie maker and broke the whole thing….oops!
Here I’ve compiled a list of the Ten Best Homemade Nakd Bars and healthy snack recipes I could find online:
Similar to standard Nakd bars. Except they’re balls. These seeded protein balls are made with the exact same principles. Nuts & fruit. Except Protein promo has added a few twists. By swapping the dates to prunes and halving the nuts to replace with seeds they have almost halved the calorie content. They’ve even added some vegan protein powder and coconut oil to make it even more nutritious and filling. These are honestly so tasty and satisfying, I know this because I made them.
With a taste like cookies and rainbows, these no bake cherry and vanilla protein bars are perfect for people following a raw vegan diet who want a convenient flavourful snack. Loaded with nutritious goodies like flax seeds, almond butter and oats these are perfect for hitting those macro goals. If you want to recreate this recipe you’ll find the vanilla protein powder recommended is only available for American buyers.
Perfect for packed lunches now that the kids are back at school, My Whole Food Life features a video of her making these delicious goodies with her daughter. Filled with wholesome ingredients and my favourite NUT BUTTER these are brilliant for keeping you or children energised for the long day ahead.
If you like cookie dough then you like these. Gooey and ooey like cookie dough these bars are not as compact and firm as the other bars due to their sticky texture. However, you can make a giant batch of them and pop them in the freezer to toughen them up a bit more.
Under 300 calories to a giant wholesome bar these, are brilliant low calorie, filling bars. Great for a grab and go breakfast, on the run lunch or just for a midday snack. Whip up a big batch now and watch your household flock to the kitchen for a bite.
Ok so technically not like Homemade Nakd bars as they’re not vegan. They are, however, tasty, nourishing, sweet and filling. Having family who live in Spain I’ve had my fair share of Turron. This festive snack is great all year round and not just Christmas, although require a bit more work than other recipes. And be warned, it’s extremely moreish.
If you thought slow cookers were just for stews and casseroles you were mistaken. These energy bars are quickly whisked together and left in the slow cooker for around 3 hours leaving a sweet scented, almond fragrance around the home.
Leave the sugar filled candy bars in the supermarkets and reach for one of these superfood packed, vegan, raw, cruelty-free energy bars. This Superfood snack is high in nutrients to keep you full and healthy, give them a go today.
The creator of this recipe was drawn into the Raw food hype via her friend. Declaring the benefits from the energy her plant-based diet gave her. Here she has created a quick simplistic nutty energy bar – perfect as a post workout snack.
Dates, pomegranates and quinoa aren’t like your, typical snack bar ingredients. However vegan Ann has managed to cram as much healthy goodness as she can into one delicious batch of bars, and they look divine.
