After my detox in Spain, I am feeling super re-energised and ready to get back into the kitchen. I have been so busy with Detox Junkie and work behind the scenes on future classes and events that I have neglected what I love to do and that is make FOOD! Yes I really do love food. I always have. When I worked as a city girl in London, I used to scour Square Meal magazine looking for new venues to try each week. Being creative in the kitchen is what I am doing when I lose track of time. I love trying new things and feeding people with yummy healthy raw food!
These are great kept in the freezer (I always have a freezer full of raw chocs, bars and raw ice cream for those time I want a special treat). I just fed my auntie one of these and my other creations from last night (Chocolate Orange Snowdrops and Chocolate Orange Crunch (which taste like heaven by the way and will be going in my next ebook) and she LOVED them!
So here’s how you make them:
Coconut Choc Chip Oat Bars
- 1/2 cup coconut butter (unmelted)
- 1/2 cup maple syrup
- 1/2 teaspoon almond extract
- 1 cup oats
- 1 cup desiccated coconut
- 1/2 cup dried mulberries
- 1/4 cup cacao nibs (raw chocolate nibs)
Combine the first 3 ingredients in a food processor. Place the oats, coconut, mulberries and cacao nibs in a bowl and mix through. Pour in the coconut butter and syrup mixture and combine thoroughly. Dollop the mixture out into a parchment lined tin and place in the freezer for 1 hour.
P.S. If you don’t have mulberries or cacao nibs, just use cranberries, raisins, gojis or whatever you have available.
