Quick and easy to make, these gluten-free bars, inspired by Elana’s Pantry, are a “kid-tested, mother-approved” sweet treat, as shown in the photo below.
And they offer some solid nutritional value! That’s because almond flour is high in protein and is also a great source of vitamin E; walnuts are packed with omega-3s; dried cranberries have numerous health benefits including immune system and cardiovascular support; and sweet, ripe dates help to provide a tasty source of fiber.
Originally, I was going to call these “Dried Fruitcake Bars,” but I was afraid the name would scare people. LOL! As you can see from the smiling faces below, these dried fruit bars are absolutely delicious!
