Almond Butter Bars

Almond butter bars

These highly nutritious bars are only semi-sweet, so perfect for breakfast on the go, or a power snack when you’re caught short. High in protein, healthy fats and fibre, they’re filling and won’t upset blood sugar levels. If you’re making these for children, you may want to add an extra tablespoon of coconut sugar, plus a handful of raisins or dark chocolate chips to make them more appealing to little ones while still being a healthy snack.

Makes 16 bars

3 tbsp coconut sugar

3 tbsp almond butter

50ml coconut milk

30g butter or coconut oil, melted

1 egg

1 tsp vanilla extract – optional

70g ground almonds

½ tsp bicarbonate of soda

¼ tsp sea salt, finely ground

100g mixed seeds, such as pumpkin, sunflower and sesame

2 tbsp ground flaxseeds

Preheat the oven to 170 degrees C. Grease and line a 6-8 inch square tin/dish.

In a large bowl, combine the almond butter, vanilla if using, coconut sugar, coconut milk, egg and melted fat, stirring well to mix through. In a medium bowl, stir together the ground almonds, salt and bicarb of soda. Add the ground almond mixture to the wet ingredients, and then stir through the rest of the dry ingredients. Mix well to combine, then scrape the mixture into the baking tin/dish and spread evenly.

Bake for about 30 minutes, checking after 25 minutes. It should be golden and firm to the touch when ready. Leave to cool in the pan for half an hour before removing and slicing into 16 bars.

My session with Oliver Barnett was very interesting and informative and he told me how to build on my existing healthy diet, broadening what I ate and how I prepared it, and prescribed a course of herbs and a detox.
