Super Charged Chocolate Nut Bars

Written by

 

This is a great snack for kids to bring to school or as an after school snack.  I have so many parents asking me what their kids should eat at school.  The typical sandwich and chips are obviously not going to benefit their health.  This recipe will!

Coconut oil is such an amazing superfood that enhances our metabolism, improves brain function and hormones.  Getting lots of coconut oil into our diet and our children’s diets should be a high nutritional priority.

Combining that with the essential fats, zinc, magnesium and B vitamins found in the walnuts, almonds, sunflower and pumpkin seeds and you have a great nutritionally dense, energy boosting bar.

Ingredients

  • 1 cup of walnuts
  • ½ cup of sunflower seeds
  • ½ cup of pumpkin seeds
  • ½ cup of almonds
  • ¼ cup of honey
  • ½ tsp of cinnamon
  • 1/3 cup + 2 tbsp of coconut oil
  • 3 tbsp. raw cacao powder
Instructions
 
  • Pulse nuts in blender until chopped to your liking, some like bigger chunks, some like small.
  • Melt coconut oil, honey, and cacao on low heat and mix until fully blended.
  • Add nuts to chocolate mixture and combine.
  • Line a 9×13 pan with parchment paper.
  • Add mixture and flatten until spread evenly around pan.
  • Let harden in freezer for 30 minutes. Keep in fridge for remaining time!
