RAW APPLE CINNAMON BARS
The first time that I ever tried a raw bar I was immediately hooked! It was the apple cinnamon (some brands descripe it as ‘apple pie flavor’, now doesn’t that say something!) bar from a brand called Raw Bite, and they are still my favourite. Unfortunately, the bars are quite expensive so I had a look at the ingredients and tried to make them myself. Here is the end result: a crazy delicious raw vegan bar full of healthy ingredients that will provide you with lots of energy.
I mostly don’t ‘raw-bake’ in large quantities, and this recipe will give you 6 bars. You can easily double the amounts and store the bars in your freezer for weeks.
– 6 medjool dates, take the pits out
– 1/4 cup of almond flour
– 1/4 cup of chopped up pieces of dried apple rings
– 25 grams of oatmeal
– 2 tablespoons of melted coconut oil
– 3 teaspoons of cinnamon
Mix the oats with almond meal, dried apple pieces, and cinnamon in your food processor so the oats mix well with the rest of the mixture. Then add the dates and the coconut oil and mix everything well together until a dough forms. The dough will be thick and not very sticky, but good enough to stick together when you form it with your hands. If you think it’s not sticky enough, add another date or an extra tablespoon of melted coconut oil, this way you can’t go wrong with the recipe! Spread the dough over parchment paper, approximately 1 cm thick. Put this in the freezer for at least 1 hour before you slice the mixture into bars. Then they are ready to be enjoyed or you can store them in the freezer again
