These nutrient-dense bars are not only a delicious way to kickstart your day, but also make a great snack no matter the time. A mix of nuts, oats, dates, coconut oil, and a little vanilla give these bars a chewy texture and salty sweet flavor. Using a mix of nuts adds more flavor to these bars than sticking with only one type. We think almond butter is slightly more neutral than peanut butter in this recipe, but you can substitute with other nut butters if desired.
