    My Private Note

    Ingredients:

    Serves: 12

    Yield:

    bars

    Units: US | Metric

    Directions:

    1. 1
      On a cookie sheet, toast nuts and shredded coconut until golden brown. In order for them to cook evenly, you need to shake up the tray at least once during cooking…trust us!
    2. 2
      Once toasted, pour mixture into a food processor and pulse until nuts are chopped and the mixture becomes coarsely ground (sort of the consistency of bread crumbs).
    3. 3
      In a mixing bowl, melt coconut oil and almond butter (about 30 seconds). Remove from microwave and stir until smooth.
    4. 4
      Add vanilla extract, honey and sea salt. Mix thoroughly.
    5. 5
      Fold in nut mixture, almond meal and protein powder until mixed thoroughly.
    6. 6
      Add whole egg and mix thoroughly.
    7. 7
      Fold in blueberries/cranberries.
    8. 8
      Press mixture into an 8 by 8 loaf pan (a modification that we made to keep everything crisper and help the bars to hold together).
    9. 9
      Cook in a preheated oven at 325 degrees for 10 minutes.
    10. 10
      Remove from oven, sprinkle a ¼ cup of shredded coconut on top and place under broiler until top begins to brown.
    11. 11
      Let cool for 10-15 minutes. Cut into 12 pieces/bars.
    12. 12
      Enjoy or stack on wax paper/parchment and store in an airtight container.
    13. 13
      Note: You can also add dark chocolate chips instead of the cranberries/blueberries (available at Whole Foods or health food store). If you add the chips while the mixing bowl is warm (from the coconut oil/almond butter mixture), they will melt into the mixture and you will have yourself a chocolate primal bar. Alternatively, you can just let the mix cool, then add the chips, then refrigerate the pan to get chocolate chip primal bars. The bars stick together pretty well without being cooked.

      Love this recipe! I make it for my daughter as an after school snack and she loves it. It keeps her going until dinnertime.
