Ingredients

  • 8-10 Medjool dates large and deseeded
  • 3/4 cup sunflower seeds I used raw, unsalted
  • 1 1/2 cup unsweetened coconut
  • 1 tbsp chia seeds
  • 2 cups oats
  • 6 tbsp refined coconut oil
  • 1/2 cup peanut butter or almond butter I used unsweetened
  • 4 tbsp maple syrup or local honey
  • A couple of pinches of pink salt
  • 1/4 cup chocolate chips melted - optional

Instructions

  • With your Nutri- Bullet or Food processor, add ingredients. So you don't overfill, you can add the first 4 ingredients, then blend, dump into a medium bowl. Add remaining ingredients to Nutri-bullet and blend. Pour into mixing bowl and mix everything together with a wooden spoon.
  • Blend until everything is incorporated well.
  • In a pan (I used 8x12) place parchment paper in the bottom, and pour ingredients in.
  • Press the mix firmly and evenly in the pan.
  • Refrigerate for about an hour, or freeze about a 1/2 hour.
  • I cut mine about 5 inches long and 2 inches wide, but you can cut smaller or larger.
  • If you would like to drizzle with chocolate. Melt chocolate chips in a saucepan. Add a tablespoon or 2 of milk of choice to thin them down. Drizzle chocolate over bars. Refrigerate for another few minutes to harden the chocolate.
  • Store in a ziplock bag or airtight container in fridge.

Notes

*This batch of granola bars has over 70g of protein!!
Different peanut butter and almond butter have different consistency. Make a judgment if you need to add more to help them stick together.
