I made these yesterday morning and they turned out amazing. Massive amounts of protein, omegas 6 and 3's as well as fiber. These power bars are low glycemic, low sugar and gluten free. This recipe is very forgiving and can be varied quite a bit. I made a second batch where I added chia seeds, hemp seeds and whole flax. You will find a little goes a long ways. They are very filling and will sustain you though the morning.
2 cups raw almonds
1/2 cup flaxseed meal
1/2 cup unsweetened shredded coconut
2 scoops whey protein powder
1/2 cup raw almond butter
1/2 teaspoon salt
1/2 cup coconut oil
1/8th cup Fructevia, Steviva Blend or a small dash to taste Steviva Brands Pure Stevia Powder
1 tablespoon pure vanilla extract
8 squares unsweetened chocolate, melted and sweetened to taste with stevia and cinnamon
Place almonds, flax meal, shredded coconut, whey powder, almond butter, and salt in a food processor. Pulse briefly, about 10 seconds. In a small sauce pan, melt coconut oil over very low heat.
Add coconut oil mixture to food processor and pulse until ingredients form a course paste.
Press mixture into an 8x8 glass baking dish oiled with coconut oil to reduce sticking.
Chill in refrigerator for 1 hour, until mixture hardens.
In a double boiler, melt chocolate, stirring in Fructevia, Steviva Blend or a dash to taste of Steviva Brands Pure Stevia Powder and cinnamon. Spread melted chocolate over bars; return to refrigerator for 30 minutes, until chocolate hardens. Remove from refrigerator, cut into bars, and serve. Deeeeelish.
