Super delicious protein bars for in between meals.
Here we go, I just developed this yummy recipe... it is gluten and dairy free (vegan) and contains no refined sugar(s)
1/2 cup pepitas
1 cup pecans
1 cup raw almonds
1 cup coconut dessicated
1 cup quinoa flakes
2 cups buckwheat or brown rice cereal puffs
1/4 teaspoon fine sea salt (ravida sea salt italian brand)
1 cup brown rice syrup
1/4 cup pure maple syrup
3 tablespoons coconut oil
1/2 cup chia seeds
1 teaspoon pure vanilla essence
1 teaspoon cinnamon
1 teaspoon cardamon powder
Put the pecans, almonds and pepitas (pumpkin seeds) in a dry fry pan and roast until crispy and aromatic (5-7 minutes)
Chop the nuts and pepitas roughly.
In a saucepan gently melt the coconut oil, brown rice syrup and maple syrup until warm.
In a bowl mix all the dry ingredients including the nuts, seeds spices, and pour over the warm coconut oil and brown rice syrup.
Stir well, and put into a square baking pan and put in the fridge for an hour or so.
As you can see from the photograph there is only one square left!
