Most energy bars I find out there are just sugar bombs. I find that this recipe is a better ratio of carbs, protein and fats to give me long lasting energy without spiking my blood sugar. I like to make a big batch of these every couple of weeks to have on hand when I don’t have time for a meal, but need high quality nutrients and energy. For me this usually means before an early morning exercise or when I have to treat patients straight through my lunch.
Feel free to play around with the recipe. I never make it the exact same way every time.
In a food processor place:
1 cup raw cashews
1 cup raw almonds
1 cup unsweetened shredded coconut
1/2 cup flax seeds
1/3 cup chia seeds
1/3 cup raw cacao nibs
3 tablespoons coconut oil
2 tablespoons grass fed ghee (softened)
1 tablespoon MCT oil
1 tablespoon raw unpasteurized honey
1 tablespoon xylitol (optional)
Process into a nice crunchy paste. Mold into whatever shape you prefer and keep refrigerated.
