Chocolate Coconut Raw Food Energy Bars. ( an alternate to Brownies ) 

Print Friendly 

Description:
This is a perfect energy bar full of nuts, berries and seeds that will curb your hunger and look after any cravings. As it is full of nuts and seeds it is a great protein source and would be a good snack.

Ingredients:
2 C pitted Dates
1/3 C agave nectar
½ C cashew butter
1 C ground almonds
½ C pumpkin seeds
½ C Hemp seeds
¼ C chia seeds
¼ C sesame seeds
½ dried Goji berries
½ C coconut
2/3 C organic chocolate chips or cocoa nibs.


Directions:
Mix all ingredients well in food processor. Spoon into 8 x 8 pan. ( I used a 9 x 13”) Refrigerate for at least 3 hours before cutting. Cut very small as they are filling, and individually wrap.
It filled the food processor, so I ended up processing it in two batches. I added a bit of cocoa powder as well, used hazelnut butter instead of cashew, and added nearly ¼ C warm water to help it mix. Maybe try adding some cayenne? Yum. Could be rolled into balls.

Recipe
Sodium-Reduce Banana Bread
Category: Low or No Salt

If you've never experimented with different ingredients, making changes to a recipe may seem daunting. To be fair, sometimes simple changes can ruin a recipe. But with some knowledge of the ingredients' functions, you can lower the risk of having to put your creation go right from the oven into the garbage. In this banana bread recipe (and other "quick breads" like muffins), the role of salt is simply to add flavour. Therefore, removing it should only affect the taste. By comparison, in bread made with yeast, salt also control how quickly bread rises. You cannot remove it without making other changes to the recipe.
