I had been meaning to get this recipe to you for sometime.
Then, I forgot…
Punish me now!
I can’t believe I FORGOT! This is an amazing bar. It brings a bit of heaven on earth for my children and me. My only problem is that they are so good that I will, rather could, eat the whole pan full.
They ARE that good.
I adapted this recipe from Elana’s Pantry. I like her original recipe. It is great for my kiddos who have no weight to lose, BUT for me, not so much.
The honey in the original recipe is a killer to sloughing off those bits of fat that need to come off.
I need some of that powerful fat-melting food to get into my tum-tum so that I can be a healthy Mama for my family. I don’t have a long way to go now, but there is definitely some residual cellulite hanging on me. Yes, it is like that. Kind of gross I know.
Do I fret over my weight loss? Not on Trim Healthy Mama. There is so much freedom in the plan to enjoy all kinds of food, literally all foods. Praise the Lord!
I can eat my fats and know that I am losing. I can eat my carbs and know that I am losing still. I can eat and be merry.
This bar makes me merry! 🙂
So here you you go, my adaptation of Elana’s Paleo Breakfast Bar
I call mine:
- 1 cup almond meal
- 1/4 cup coconut flour
- 1/2 tsp. sea salt
- 1 cup unsweetened shredded coconut flakes
- 1 cup pumpkin seeds
- 1 cup sunflower seeds
- 1/2 cup chopped or slivered almonds
- 1/2 cup coconut oil, melted
- 2 tsp vanilla
- 40 drops or 1/2 tsp NOW brand organic liquid stevia
- 3 eggs
- Pre-heat oven to 350 degrees.
- Grease a 9 x 13 inch pyrex with a little coconut oil.
- Melt the 1/2 cup coconut oil on low heat.
- Meanwhile, mix all the dry ingredients in a large bowl very well.
- Add coconut oil, vanilla, stevia and eggs.
- Mix VERY well again.
- Place in the pyrex and pat the mixture evenly into the corners and all through.
- Bake in oven for about 25 minutes... till browned on the edges and lightly browned on top.
You may try it with berries too, dried or fresh or frozen, no more than 1/2 cup and you may need to cook longer.
