From the Vitality Food Feature 'HEALTHY MEALS IN MINUTES'.

Adapted from http://www.beabetterbeing.com, a blog site developed by Ann Barnes to enlighten others about practical ways to make healthy food convenient and delicious.  (Makes approximately 30 bars when cut into 4-inch squares)

Ingredients

  • 2½ cups of almond meal or almond flour
  • 1 cup unsweetened shredded coconut
  • 1 cup hemp hearts
  • 1/3 cup hemp protein powder
  • 1/3 cup whole chia seed
  • ½ cup goji berries or other dried fruit
  • 2 Tbsp greens powder (optional)
  • 1/4 tsp cinnamon
  • 3/4 cup melted coconut oil
  • 1/3 cup raw coconut nectar or raw agave
  • ½ tsp vanilla

1) Mix the first 8 ingredients together (all dry ingredients) in a bowl. In a separate bowl, add together the last three (coconut nectar or agave, coconut oil, and vanilla). Combine the wet ingredients with dry ingredients and mix well.

2) Place into a glass 13 x 9 inch pan at 3/4 inch thick and push down and level. Place in freezer to become solid. Let set 1 hour. Take out and cut into squares. Place squares into a container and store in the fridge for up to three weeks or in the freezer for up to three months.
