Gluten, dairy, refined sugar free.
Prep Time 10 mins
Servings 5 bars

Ingredients
  

  • 1 tbsp coconut oil heaped
  • ¼ cup honey or pure maple
  • ½ cup nut butter whatever nut butter you enjoy
  • 1 cup organic rolled oats
  • ½ tsp cinnamon
  • 2 tbsp almond meal
  • 1 tbsp pumpkin or sunflower seeds or swap for crushed nuts
  • 1 tbsp desiccated coconut or swap for seeds or crushed nuts
  • 2 tbsp sugar free dark chocolate chips optional, to be pressed into top of bars

Instructions
 

  • In a medium pot, gently melt the coconut oil, honey/maple, nut butter until liquid and smooth and remove from heat.
  • Add in all the other ingredients except for the dark chocolate chips and stir together until you have a fudgy sticky mixture.
  • Line a loaf baking tin with baking paper and turn mixture into tin. Press out firmly until compacted and flat. Add evenly the dark chocolate chips and press into mixture.
  • Place in fridge to set for a few hours before removing and slicing (or in freezer if need faster!) Once sliced, store in fridge or freezer.

Notes

Additional flavours, the possibilities are endless – grate in lemon or orange rind and squeeze in some juice.  Use nitrate free sultanas instead of chocolate.
