My husband and I have made the performance energy bars (most contain fruit) from the recipes in the book: THRIVE: The Vegan Nutrition Guide to Optimal Performance in Sports and Life, by Brenden Brazier, a Vegan triathlete.
The recipes are a little labor intensive, but we loved the coconut mango energy bars, and I just make an extra batch for the freezer. I can sparkmail u the recipe, if you don't have access to/want to buy the book. There are recipes in the book for banana energy bars, pomogranate amaranth energy bars, papaya yerba Mate energy bars, ginger pear, apple cinnamon, etc etc.
You'll need stuff like cooked quinoa, ground flaxseed and sometimes hemp protein for many of the recipes.
PS: Just now read Ev's post below: Same book referenced. It's a good one for vegan athletes!
