RAW TRAIL MIX BAR
Makes 20 bars | 10 min prep | 20 mins freeze
1 Cup Rolled Oats
1 Cup Coconut (desiccated)
1/2 Cup Raw Sunflower seeds
1/2 Cup Raw Pepitas
1/4 Cup Raw Pistachios
1/4 Cup Raw Cashews
1 Tbs Hemp Seeds
1 Tbs Chia Seeds
1/2 Cup Butter
1/4 Cup Honey
3 Tbs dried fruit (optional)
1 -2 Tbs Extra Virgin Olive Oil (for toasting)
Mix the dry ingredients in a bowl and have your food processor close by and ready to blend.
Lightly coat a pan with extra virgin olive oil on low heat. Using a Cup of the dry mix at a time, add it to the pan and remove when lightly toasted, placing into the food processor. Keep this going, using 1 Cup at a time, until all of the mix has been toasted.
Blend the mix into a fine crumb, either pulsing or on high speed.
In a saucepan on low heat, add the butter and honey (and vanilla) and warm until it has melted and combined. *If using Coconut Oil, you might find the bars need to be kept frozen before serving rather than refrigeration.
Pour the sweet butter mix into the processor with the dry mix and blend on high until the mixture has combined. Add fruit (optional) and mix gently on low speed to blend them without chopping.
Line a loaf tin with baking/parchment paper and tip the raw bar blend into the tin. Using the back of a spoon, flatten the mixture and spread it evenly in the tin.
Cover with foil and place in the freezer for 20 – 30 mins until it is solid and firm to slice.
