Almond Energy Bars

Mastermind Weekend 1/16

Hey there!

I'm Tina

I’m the owner of Carrots ‘N’ Cake as well as a Certified Nutrition Coach and Functional Diagnostic Nutrition Practitioner (FDN-P). I use macros and functional nutrition to help women find balance within their diets while achieving their body composition goals.


An in-depth, 4-week reverse dieting course for women who feel like their metabolism has slowed down, think they might have hormonal imbalance and can’t lose weight no matter what they do.

Looking for a mid-morning or afternoon snack that is nutritious, satisfying, and tastes great? Well, look no further. This snack is for you!

Made with rolled oats, brown rice cereal, almond flour, sliced almonds, and dried cranberries, these Almond Energy Bars will fill you up and please your taste buds at the same time. Unlike packaged energy bars, these ones are made from wholesome ingredients (none of that hard-to-pronounce, artificial stuff) and aren’t loaded with a ton of sugar. Each and every bite is healthy and delicious!

Serves 9


  • 1 cup brown rice cereal
  • 1 cup rolled oats
  • 1/2 cup almond flour
  • 2 eggs
  • 1/3 cup honey
  • 1 teaspoon vanilla extract
  • 1 tablespoon (1/2 ounce) chia seeds

  • 2 teaspoons cinnamon
  • 1/4 teaspoon sea salt


Preheat oven to 325 degrees F.

Combine all ingredients in a large bowl and mix well.

Coat an 8” X 8” baking pan with non-stick cooking spray.

Pour batter in pan and spread evenly. Flatten and smooth top with a spatula.

Bake for 25 minutes.

Remove from oven and allow to cool before slicing and serving.

I created this recipe for the Almond Board of California; check out my other delicious, comfort food remake recipes here:



  1. Looks delicious! I didn’t think I was a huge cranberry fan until I’ve had them a few times recently in other bar recipes. I love the subtle sweetness they add without overpowering the other ingredients. Can’t wait to try these!

  2. Are these crunchy crunchy? I think my daughter would love them but she’s only 2 1/2 so anything super crunchy doesn’t go over too well. We have some dried cherries waiting at home that would be great in here.

  3. These look great. Question for you- how do you determine when to use Almond meal v Almond Flour for recipes?
    I never know which to buy, and I want to start with one.
    Thanks : )

  4. Oh my goodness, these look delicious! I used to make homemade granola quite often and when I wanted more of a bar I’d add some almond butter and an egg to it and bake it in a square pan. I might have to bring that back after seeing these!

  5. I love easy recipes like this because bars are the best snack during the day or before a workout and so easy to carry to work or in my gym bag. I’ve loved the other almond recipes so I’m excited to try this one!

  6. I love making homemade energy bars! They are a staple in my house and so easy to make! I love how it’s really easy to mix it up with the fillings too so that they are always different! I’ll have to try your version out, thanks!

  7. Can’t wait to make these. I have a similar recipe with mini chocolate chips, but with no eggs and flour. Oh maybe I can add dried fruit to those! Thanks 🙂
