New Recipe - Raw Cacao and Coconut Energy Bars

As promised on Instagram I am here today to share a new recipe with you! 
Its been a while since I have posted a recipe about a snack bar but I think it was worth the wait. This recipe is for a very yummy energy bar which can be eaten in place of those high sugar and expensive snack bars you can buy on the high street. I hope you get the chance to make this and enjoy it as much as me.............


Tamzin's Raw Cacao + Coconut Energy Bars

Ingredients:
1 Cup each of Quinoa Flakes, Oats and Dessicated Coconut
1/2 Cup Raw Cacao Nibs + 1/2 Cup Baked Cherries
1/2 Cup each of Apple Sauce, Maple Syrup (or any syrup you prefer) and Walnut Oil
2 Eggs + 1TBsp Truvia

Method:
Put all dry ingredients into a large bowl and mix. Add in wet ingredients and mix again until combined. Pour batter into a baking dish and bake in an oven Gas mark 4 for about 30/40 minutes. Check after 25 minutes to be safe, the batter should be nice and brown on the outside. Check with a knife to see if it comes out clean once it does remove from oven and leave to cool. Then enjoy!

I cut mine into bars and stuck in the freezer so I can take one out each day for a yummy healthy snack. These are also wheat and dairy free as well as super quick and easy to make : )


Perfect mid afternoon snackage!

I'm glad my 2013 goals are already on track, these bars are exactly what I was aiming for when I wrote in my Goals about making snacks. These save me money and are way healthier than shop bought alternatives!

Question:

Do you make your own version of something you can buy in the shops to save you money?

I will be making lots more snack bar varieties homemade lunches and all sorts of other goodies this coming year : )

  1. That looks great! I never thought about making my own energy bars (I've usually shied away from Tracker bars and the like because they're so expensive). I might give this a go - looks really easy to make too. Thanks :)
