Mama Jen’s Raw Protein Bars
1/4 cup of coconut flour
1/2 cup of raw shredded coconut
1/2 cup of almond flour
1/4 cup of ground flaxseed
1/4 cup of cacao chocolate nibs
1/2 cup of oats – can use gluten free. I used TJ’s mix of oats, barley, and rye
2 tablespoons of dry chia seeds
1/4 cup of raw sunflower seeds from Go Raw
1/4 cup of raw pumpkin seeds from Go Raw
1/4 cup of goji berries
1 cup of unsweetened applesauce
1/4 cup of coconut oil
3/4 cup of sunflower seed butter
1/4 cup of raw honey
1 tsp cinnamon
Combine all wet ingredients into ball first. Then add all dry ingredients. Batter will be dense and should be moist. Ingredients should be sticking together and in a spreadable state. If batter is crumbly and falling apart, add more applesauce.
Prepare a pyrex dish with a little coconut oil spread all over the bottom.
Add batter and press down with a spatula so that mixture is solidified and dense. Refrigerate for 3-4 hours. Cut in squares and enjoy!
Note: These bars are loaded with nutrients and a good balance of heart healthy fats, proteins, and carbs. Because they are higher in calories, a little goes a long way, so you don’t need to eat a huge square! About an inch and a half by inch and a half should be perfect! I’d love to hear your feedback and how you like these bars! Get your kids to eat them too.
