How To Make Homemade Nakd Bars

We all love a good nakd bar don’t we. They are quick, convenient, healthy little snacks readily available to most of us but did you know that it is so simple and easy to make your own? They taste even better than the handy supermarket snack too! All you need is a food processor, some medjool dates (you can find them in the fruit and veg section of most supermarkets) and your favourite nuts and dried fruit.

Here are my favourite homemade nakd bar recipes:

1. Pecan PieClean Eating Pecan Pie Bars

2. Pina ColadaClean Eating No Bake Piña Colada Bars

3. Cranberry PistachioClean Eating No Bake Cranberry Pistachio Bars - The Kitchen Shed

4. Mango The Kitchen Shed - Clean Eating No Bake Mango Bars

5. CherryThe Kitchen Shed - Clean Eating No Bake Cherry Bars

6. Ginger Warrior – AKA Ginger & ApricotThe Kitchen Shed - Clean Eating Ginger Warrior Bars

 7.Cashew Cookie

Helpful Tip: Medjool dates come in different sizes, some are drier than others so when you are making the bars, keep adding medjool dates until the mixture sticks together when pressed between your finger and thumb.

 

I LOVE your comments! Leave me a comment below and let me know your favourite Nakd bar flavour.

    Hi, I’m not a fan of dates or any kind dried fruit, can the dates be made into a sort of smooth paste in a blender so there aren’t any bits before making the bars?

      They are really smooth in the bars, they blend up really well 🙂

    These are so yummy! Made them all the time before I gave up sugar! Soooooo much better than the naked bars which, weirdly, kick off my IBS!!!

      Hello. You can either buy pre chopped nuts (expensive!) or I’d be tempted to either manually chop them with a knife or slam them in a strong freezer bag and go to town with the rolling pin. You could de stone the dates and use a fork to mash them up – then get your hands in there and knead it up. I find fresher dates are best. Our local green grocer sells them by weight from a big box. Good luck…

      I buy my stuff from lidls, mixed nuts and dates, prob about £10- £15 for ingredients as I make a large batch, I make 30 bars from mine. They are bigger and have more nuts in them. I just use lidls mixed nuts and lidls dates at the higher end mine are 50p a bar

      I think it definitely depends on where you get your nuts and dates from, but I would say that they definitely could work out cheaper.

      Hiya, I haven’t ever tried but I would imagine that they wouldnt work quite the same. The medjool dates are very thick and sticky inside, but maybe a mixture of the two would be ok?

    I’m impressed, I must say. Rarely do I encounter a blog that’s both educative and entertaining,
    and without a doubt, you have hit the nail on the head. The issue is something too few people are speaking intelligently about.
    I’m very happy that I stumbled across this in my hunt for something
    regarding this.

    Hi, I wondered if there was any way to make the bars less sticky? Yesterday I made a bunch of bars, but when I take them out of the freezer and take them on the go, they’re all sticky and difficult to eat. Does anyone have any tips for this?
