In a double boiler mix together the following:
1 cup nut butter
1/2 cup of EVCO (or a stick of butter)
1/2 cup carob powder
1-2 tbs of agave/honey/maple syrup
Mix until melted and smooth. Take off the heat and let cool slightly. Then add:
1 cup ground flax
1 cup chopped crispy NT nuts
1 cup finely shredded coconut
1/2 cup crispy NT sunseeds
1/2 cup raisins
1/2 cup sesame seeds
Pour into a 9x13 pyrex dish lined with wax paper and chill in the fridge several hours. Cut into bars (20-25) and store in the fridge or wrap each bar in wax paper and foil and store in the freezer for a ready to go snack on the run.
These are a huge hit here. Nutrient dense, a little goes a long way! Using carob means very little additional sweetener is needed (plus it is extremely high in calcium--3 x more than bm tho probably not as bio-available). We find them quite sweet enough with 1 tbs of agave but even using 2 tbs the sugar content works out to less than 1 gram per bar. If you decide to use cocoa more sweetener would be needed. Another option would be 10-12 oz of homemade carob chips and then no additional sweetener. I think I could possibly add more EVCO up to about 2/3 perhaps but 1/2 cup is adequate.
