I love nuts,to me they are the ultimate keto snack. These bars pack them up into a portable package that will sustain you through any food emergency. You know the one one I mean, when you get round to your nans house and she has cooked a lovely tea but none of it is keto compliant and after polity declining sandwiches and cake you’re starving. Or when you are stuck on the train platform because your train has been cancelled and home is several hours away. Pop a few of these in your bag and you will have a great energy power pack,easily transported and the sort of food that my mum would say puts hairs on your chest! The other great thing is that you get to choose what goes into them, and just throw everything into the food processor, I make a batch when my nuts are a bit short dated to use them up. This is my version of a recipe I found online for grain free granola bars
- 350g mixed nuts/seeds
- 50g desiccated coconut
- 2 tablespoons cocoa nibs (optional)
- 50 g coconut oil melted
- 4 tablespoons nut butter
- 1 teaspoon vanilla extract
- 2 teaspoon cinamon
- 2 eggs
- 3 tablespoons sweetener (optional)
Turn the oven on to pre heat Gas5 180c
Personally I try to avoid all sweeteners, I have been sugar free for a year now and find that anything sweet rather unpleasant and but if you want to you can add your choice of sweetener.
Its not really possible to say what the nutritional value of these bars are, as it will vary with each batch and each different set of ingredients and if you use sweetener weather you include the polyols. I don’t think that these are an everyday thing,whichever way you look at it they contain a lot of calories but if you are in maintenance or want some thing healthier that shop bought goods they are perfect bits sized chunks of goodness, perfect for breakfast, long hikes and emergency ‘s.
