Bars

It’s hard to eat just one!

This nut-free, mineral rich bar is just heavenly. It contains all my favorite superfoods held together with creamy tahini and coconut oil. Be careful you don’t overdo it with this one. It’s hard to stop with just one.

High in protein, zinc, calcium and essential fatty acids, this makes a great post-workout or anytime snack and I love that it’s not too sweet. I use low glycemic coconut nectar but you can use yacon syrup, maple syrup or agave if you can’t find it in your area.

Serving size: makes 16 servings

Prep time: 20 minutes

Ingredients

½ cup coconut nectar
1/3 cup raw tahini
1/4 cup coconut oil, warmed to liquid
1 vanilla bean, scraped or pinch of vanilla powder
1 cup pumpkin seeds
1 cup sunflower seeds
1/2 cup goji berries
½ cup shredded coconut
¼ cup black sesame seeds
¼ cup cacao nibs
¼ cup hemp seeds
Pinch of salt

Directions

  1. In a blender, process coconut nectar, tahini, coconut oil, and vanilla until smooth and set aside.
  2. In a medium-size mixing bowl, combine remaining dry ingredients. Add in coconut nectar mixture and mix well using your hands. I recommend wearing gloves. It’ll be pretty sticky.
  3. Take half of the mixture and place in a food processor. Process until mixture breaks down into very small pieces.
  4. Transfer it back to the mixing bowl and combine with remaining mixture using your hands.
  5. Press into an 8×8-inch pan lined with parchment paper or plastic wrap and place in the freezer until firm—about 30-60 minutes.
  6. Cut bars into desired pieces and store in the refrigerator or in the freezer if you like them chewier.
