Raw Granola Bars1/3 cup Almond Butter (or peanut butter)
6 Tbsp. Coconut Oil, Melted
1/4 cup Honey, Melted
1/3 cup Coconut Flour
3 Tbsp. Organic Coconut Palm Sugar*
1 Tbsp. Sesame Seeds
1 Tbsp. Chia Seeds
1 cup Chopped Raw Nuts (our favorite mix is 1/3 c. almonds, 1/3 c. cashews, 1/3 c. peanuts)
3 Tbsp. Pureed Dried Plums (optional - this doesn't affect the taste, it just adds nutrition)
1/4 cup Oatmeal
1/2 cup Unsweetened Shredded Coconut
1/2 tsp. Salt (we use Grey Celtic Sea salt or Himalayan salt)
1/4 cup. Raisins
1/2 cup Carob Chips (or Chocolate Chips)
In the order listed above add ingredients one at a time into a medium bowl, mix well after each addition.
Line a 9 x 9 baking dish with aluminum foil. Press mixture firmly into pan. Refrigerate till hard. With a sharp knife cut into bars. Keep cool so bars will stay together. Store in the fridge in an air tight container or wrap and freeze individually.
I have used all sorts of different sugars in place of the coconut palm sugar (such as evaporated cane juice, sucanat, organic raw sugar, etc) however, our family loves the taste of the organic coconut palm sugar in these bars.
