CAUTION! These bars may cause extreme productivity and could possibly give you the greatest work out of your life.  Don't say I didn't warn you! 

Between the Matcha (powdered, concentrated green tea), dates, nuts and flax seeds, these bars are going to set you up for success.  Don't feel like waiting for them to set? Crumble up the mixture and throw it over greek yogurt and fruit.  Just like that, you're ready to kick Monday morning's ass. 

The Goods:

1/2 cup almonds

1/2 cup cashews 

8 - 10 pitted dates 

1/4 cup flax seed

1/4 cup almond butter 

2 tbl chia seeds 

2 tbl matcha powder 

1/4 cup coconut flakes 


The Method:

Blend everything in a food processor until well combined and sticky.  If the “dough” isn't sticky enough, add a few more dates.  Cover sheet pan with parchment paper or a silpat.  Scoop mixture onto prepared sheet pan. Push out to the edges and even out the depth of the bars.  Top with coconut. Freeze for at least 30 minutes before cutting.
