So I made these bars on the weekend and made a few additions.
They turned out well, and the athletes that have tried them have all asked for the recipe so here it is. Easy to make and taste great.
Coconut Breakfast Bars
1/3 cup brazil nuts
1/3 cup organic raw walnuts
1/3 cup organic raw almonds
1/3 cup organic raw cashews
1/3 cup organic raw sunflower seeds
1/3 cup organic raw pumpkin seeds
1/3 cup organic unsweetened coconut flakes (plus extra to dust top)
1 tsp maca powder
1 tsp cinnamon
1/3 – 2/3 cup organic coconut butter
¼ cup Organic Chocolate Chips
¼ cup Organic Currants
1 Pack Vega Sport Performance Protein – Found at any good health food store or organic market. Calgary find it at Community Natural Foods
Place all nuts, seeds, coconut fl akes, cinnamon and maca in food
processor and grind to a coarse mealy texture. Add coconut butter
and Stevia and regrind. Press mixture in glass Pyrex dish and cut into
bars. Best served cold. Store in freezer.
In the instructions you mention Stevia, but in the quantities, you don’t list it. How much do you use, out of curiosity? Thank you for sharing your recipe. I’ve recently discovered coconut butter and am looking for recipes that use it.
Thanks for reading my posts.
I did mention Stevia as the original recipe did have it in. I did not add any as I used a vanilla Vega protein packet.
It would be to taste, but with the ingredients natural sweetness, I personally would not add any.
Hope that you enjoy them.
