Crack bars + Update

Crack bars + Update

Hi There,  

It has certainly been a little moment since I last wrote on here. I have missed it! It is coming up to Chinese New Year and I’m wishing you a prosperous year ahead!

I have still been making wonderful dishes, creating recipes, hosting workshops, teaching classes, and am working on collaborative projects. So it’s all been very exciting! I have a lot coming up this year and have so much to share, hopefully you are looking forward to connecting again as much as I am. Side note: Did you part take in dry January or Veganuary this year?

So todays recipe is an easy one to sneak in to your healthy habit lifestyle. It has been my go-to breakfast [I’m always in a rush to get out the door and having this ready has been a lifesaver even if I wake up super early! time seems to fly in the mornings!] These crack bars are full of protein and good fats - which will keep you satisfied, provide you with energy and mental clarity.

Also suitable for: Gluten free, Vegan, Plant-Based, Paleo, Grain-Free, Soy Free, Dairy-Free, Coeliacs. This recipe is very versatile and you can use what you have in your pantry I just decided to go all in, so don’t be shy to try it your way.

Cook Time: 4 Minutes

Set Time: 2 hours

You will Need: INGREDIENTS:

  • Raw Nuts (Activated optional) - Hazelnuts, Brazil, Macadamia, Pecans, Almonds, 

  • Seeds - Hemp, Sesame, Sunflower, Pumpkin, Buckwheat Groats, 

  • Coconut flakes, Goji Berries (soaked then patted dry) 

  • Coconut oil, cinnamon, sea salt, [honey is optional if you are not plant based]

  • Soaked pitted dates / Raisins 


What to do: METHOD:

  • Simply chop up the nuts and seeds into tiny pieces as best you can. You can use a food processor but it you will lose the crunch factor in the end result.

  • Place them on a baking tray and dry bake in the oven for 4 minutes only! 

  • Into a large mixing bowl add in the chopped dates, coconut flakes, goji berries / raisins / honey / spices and enough coconut oil to cover everything

  • Mix it until its vaguely firm

  • Using a flat tray or plate and a piece of parchment paper, press the mixture down as much as possible

  • Set in the freezer for a couple of hours. Once frozen, you can either crack them into puzzle pieces using your hands or into nice pieces using a knife, carefully.

  • For best results this recipe MUST be kept in the freezer, either on the flat tray [great for easy snacking] or in a silicone bag [ready for grabbing] you do not need to defrost it before eating.
