These delicious breakfast bars are full of nutritional goodness and plant-based protein! Perfect for when you need your breakfast to “grab and go”!
- 1 cup desiccated coconut
- 1/2 cup shelled hemp seeds
- 1/2 cup sesame seeds
- 1/2 cup pumpkin seeds
- 1 1/2 cups mixed nuts chopped into small chunks (I added cashews, walnuts, almonds & pistachios to a high-powered blender and pulsed for a few seconds)
- 1/2 cup raisins
- 1 tsp ground cinnamon
- 1/2 cup cashew butter or nut butter of your choice
- 4 tbsp maple syrup or date paste
- 1 tsp vanilla extract
Preheat the oven to 180C / 350F and line a brownie tin with parchment paper.
In a large bowl, combine the coconut, seeds, nuts, raisins and cinnamon.
In a large saucepan, melt the cashew butter with the maple syrup on a medium heat. Once it’s well combined and smooth, remove from the heat and stir in the vanilla extract.
Add the contents of the bowl to the saucepan and mix until everything is well combined. If you need to, you can add a small drop of water to help it stick together.
Transfer to the brownie tin and press down as firmly as possible to create a flat, even layer.
Bake for approximately 15 minutes until golden brown.
Leave to cool completely before cutting into 12 bars. Keep in an air-tight tin for up to a week. Enjoy!
