This little square of pure deliciousness happened because of someone at the gym had given me a YES Bar…never heard of them..they say “Paleo Friendly” so that’s exciting!!!! He gave it to me (so nice!!!) & told me that I could probably make it! (But could I?!?!) I thought it was delicious, but I wanted to change a few things! (Of course right?! Can’t just leave well enough alone!) So, this inspired me to create my own! (& it’s cheaper :-)) So here is my version of a loaded delicious paleo power bar… & what’s even more exciting… NO BAKING NECCESSARY! 🙂

Super Loaded Paleo Power/Breakfast Bar:

1 cup raw unsalted cashews
1 cup raw unsalted almond
1 cup raw, shelled, unsalted sunflower seeds
1 cup raw, shelled, unsalted pumpkin seeds
1/2 cup flax seeds
1/4 cup chia seeds
1/2 cups dried cranberries (unsweetened or fruit juice sweetened!)
1/2 cup tahini
1/4 cup coconut butter
alittle over 1/4 cup coconut oil
One generous TBSP raw honey
2 tsp cinnamon

Okkkkkk for the directions…. First ill have you know I actually paid attention to how much I was using of each ingredient so I could give actual measurements instead of… A handful of this or dashhhh of that! Hah! Well here we go! In your food processor, add the nuts, sunflower seeds & pumpkin seeds, pulse until you have a chunky consistency, (not a fine flour consistency). Dump that into a large bowl, add flax seeds, chia seeds cranberries & cinnamon. Stir to combine. Then in a microwave safe bowl (I used a large Pyrex measuring cup), add the tahini, coconut oil, coconut butter & raw honey. Microwave or heat on stovetop In a small pot, until everything is liquified & combined! Add liquid to dry mix and mix REALLY well!!! You may need to use your hands for this! (If still seems alittle dry, add another tbsp or 2 of melted coconut oil, alttle at a time… u might NOT need this) After thoroughly combined, line a 9×13 glass Pyrex dish with wax or parchment paper, spread out mixture from edge to edge & pack down firmly! Put in freezer for an hour + until firm & cold. Take out, lift out parchment & cut to size! Store in refrigerator! 🙂 Makes about 20 good size bars! Enjoy!
