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.
