Supercharged Breakfast Bars with FSA

On February 7, 2014

MAKES 8 BARS

Lee Holmes, Certified Holistic Health Coach, wholefoods chef and author of Supercharged Food: Eat Yourself Beautiful, is on a new mission to change the way we look and feel about ourselves and discover lifelong health and beauty. You can read an interview with Lee here.

Craving a morning energy boost? My breakfast bars are off the scale and a wonderfully safe port of call amid the storm of clichéd healthy breakfast bar options on the market. Plus they’re bursting with skin-saving omega-3s.

Ingredients

unsalted butter, for greasing

125 g (4½ oz/1¼ cups) almond meal

pinch of Celtic sea salt

¼ teaspoon bicarbonate of soda (baking soda)

60 ml (2 fl oz/¼ cup) coconut oil

60 ml (2 fl oz/¼ cup) rice malt syrup, or sweetener of your choice

1 teaspoon alcohol-free vanilla extract

40 g (1 ½ oz/¼ cup) cashews, crushed

160 g (5 ½ oz/1¼ cups) combined flaxseeds, sunflower seeds and slivered almonds (FSA)

40 g (1½ oz/¼ cup) dried cranberries (optional)

Preheat the oven to 175°C (345°F/Gas 3–4). Grease a 20 x 20 x 5 cm (8 x 8 x 2 inch) square ovenproof tin.
Mix the almond meal, salt and bicarbonate of soda together in a bowl.
In a separate bowl, combine the coconut oil, rice malt syrup and vanilla. Add the almond meal mixture, and mix in the nuts, seeds and cranberries, if using.
Wet your hands and then transfer the mixture to the tin, using your hands to press down firmly on the mixture.
Transfer to the oven and bake for 15–20 minutes.
Remove from the oven, transfer to a wire rack and cool before dividing into 8 bars and serving.
These will keep in an airtight container for 7–10 days.
