NUT BARWendy, our wonderful nutritionist cooked up this delicious treat for our recent Banksia Bunch end of year get together and they disappeared in a flash.

This is a very simple, healthy and super tasty treat from Pete Evans.

Ingredients

1 cup almonds
1 cup pecans
1 cup walnuts
1/2 cup almond meal
1/2 cup shredded coconut
1/2 cup coconut oil
1/2 cup almond butter
1/4 honey
1/2 tsp vanilla powder
1/4 tsp sea salt
1 cup of dried cranberries, blueberries, raisins or goji berries (or a mix of these is tasty)

Method

  1. Preheat the oven to 160 degrees and line a baking tray with baking paper.
  2. Place the nuts on the baking tray and toast for 5 mins or until golden brown, allow to cool.
  3. Transfer the nuts to a food processor and pulse 4-5 times until coarsely ground.
  4. Place nuts in a large bowl and stir through almond meal and shredded coconut.
  5. Melt the coconut oil and almond butter in a small pan over a medium to low heat.  Add the honey, vanilla and salt and mix well.  Pour the honey mixture over the nuts and dried fruit and mix until well combined.
  6. Spoon the mixture into the prepared tray and smooth out into an even layer.  Refrigerate for 1-2 hours and cut into even sized bars.  Store in an airtight container in the fridge for up to 1 week.
