Caveman Crunch Bars

I have had lots of people asking me for alternatives to crappy grain ridden granola bars and they want them small and easy to take along, well this is what I came up with and boy are they addicting.  There are an endless amount of possibilities with these so feel free to play around and come up with your own creations.  Don’t forget to come by and tell me what you come up with or how much you love them.  Enjoy

  1. Made this weekend and the flavor is outstanding. The color is much darker than your picture and I would not call the ones I made bars. Turned into a crumble once I tried cutting them. Any thoughts on how to avoid them falling apart? I read a comment about keeping them refrigerated? Thanks!

  2. I’m new to paleo but I have a batch of these in the oven right now! In lieu of cranberries I used smaller portions of dried apricot, blueberry and mini chocolate chips. Very excited to see how these little energy bars turn out.

  3. Told you I was going to get home and make these! Delicious, I only had cashews and walnuts but they seem to have worked out, and I used one big duck egg instead of 2 eggs. Next time I will definitely add chocolate of some kind: chips or cacao powder….mmmm! These will be perfect for walking around NOLA this weekend!
