Recipe Directions

Place almonds, flax meal, shredded coconut, almond butter and salt in a food processor Pulse briefly, about 10 seconds In a warm dehydrator, ‘melt’ coconut oil. Stir agave and vanilla into oil. Add coconut oil mixture to food processor and pulse until ingredients form a coarse paste. Press mixture into an 8×8 glass baking dish Chill in refrigerator for 1 hour, until mixture hardens
Remove from refrigerator, cut into bars and serve.
Note: the picture is from the original recipe, which calls for melted chocolate to be spread on top… I just leave the cocoa out of mine but I’m sure you could stir in some nibs, if you wanted it chocolatey! Also, the picture is of Macadamia Nut Power Bars – for which you simply substitute macadamia nuts for almonds and raw macadamia nut butter for almond butter (I haven’t done this but it was suggested on the original recipe)! Enjoy!

Adapted to be raw from a recipe I found from elanaspantry.com. It was mostly raw to begin with; actually a lot of her recipes seem to be that way. Anyway this recipe was so good I had to share it here!

Territa's Review

Almond Power Bar

3 out of 5

Ditto, Frenchy! I found they don't stay together well unless eaten straight from the fridge. Even though I take my lunch in an insulated bag with an ice pack, the bar was still very crumbly by lunchtime. Tasty, but crumbly! :)

this sounds great, do you know the nutritional content? like the calories, fat, fiber?

Oh, flax meal is just finely ground flax seeds - I use an old coffee grinder to grind them up into a 'flour' (it takes about 1/3 cup whole seeds to make about 1/2 cup meal). Also, the 10 seconds in the dehydrator is just to 'melt' the coconut butter. You could just set it in the sun somewhere and it should liquidize pretty quickly. Good luck!

Soak the nuts? I usually soak my almonds for 8-12 hours with a pinch of sea salt, and then I dehydrate them to make them crispy again.

This looks fantastic. How many hours did you soak the nuts?
