What is Spirulina?

Spirulina is a nutrient-dense organism found in fresh and salt water1. It is a type of cynobacteria, or a blue-green algae2. Spirulina is a source of protein, rich in vitamins, and source of gamma linolenic acid, which is an essential fatty acid1,2.

What You’ll Need:

Almond Pulp: Use leftover almond pulp from making your own almond pulp or substitute with almond flour.

Rolled Oats: You will need rolled oats for this recipe. Be sure to purchase gluten free rolled oats if you need to be gluten free.

Dates: These bars are naturally sweetened by the dates and contain no added sugar! Soak the dates overnight to help them blend easier.

Spirulina: You will need a small amount of spirulina to make these bars.

Coconut Oil: Coconut oil helps to blend the bars and gives them a rich taste.

How to Make Spirulina Almond Pulp Bars:

  1. Place the oats and coconut oil in a microwave safe container. Microwave for 1-2 minutes or until the coconut oil melts. It is important to include the oats so that they will slightly heat and get a little crispy. Set aside to cool.
  2. Once cooled, remove the pits from the fresh dates and place all ingredients in a food processor. I recommend soaking the dates in advance to help them blend easier. Blend until the mixture is fully blended and starts to stick together. You will need to scoop the mixture off the sides of the food processor a several times throughout the blending process.
  3. Line a small square dish (I used a bread pan dish) with parchment paper. Place the mixture on top of the parchment paper and flatten out until it evenly spreads across the dish. The mixture should be thick and sticking together.
  4. Place the dish in the fridge to cool for about 30 minutes. Remove from the refrigerator and cut into square bars. Enjoy!

Store the bars in the fridge.
