Goodness Bars by LBT

Goodness Bars:

  • Throw 2 cups assorted nuts(i used brazil, almonds, pecans, pumpkin seeds), 1/2 c finely ground unsweet coconut, 1/2 c flax meal, 1/2 c almond butter, and 8 dates all in food processor enough to grind it all up,
  • Then add: 1 cup assorted dried fruit ( i used cherries, cranberries, mango, apple), coconut oil (melt 2 TB and add 1 TB unsweet cocoa), few squirts of agave nectar and grind til all spreadable
  • Then spread in 8x8 dish and put in fridge for an hour.
  • I then cut them up and freeze them individually.

WATCH OUT!! I blew out one food processor making these (it gets thick) so make sure you have a strong processor

  1. I make some pretty similar energy bars. To avoid blowing out your food processor, I'd recommend running just the nuts/seeds through it. Most dried fruit is small enough already, but will seriously gum up the blades.

    Melt your almond butter and coconut butter together (either microwave or stove top, whichever you prefer) and then mix it into the dry ingredients.

    For extra ease in removing the bars from your pan, line with wax paper first. :)
