I love anything chewy, nutty & sweet... preferably with a hint of sea salt... oh and including tahini ofcourse! If this ticks any of your boxes try this deliciousness ready within 15 minutes!
2.5 cups Puffed brown rice
1/2 cup activated buckwheat
1/4 cup quick oats
2 tbsp hemp seeds
2 tbsp sesame seeds
1 tbsp chia seeds
1/4 tsp sea salt
1 tsp Minced rosemary
1/2 cup tahini
1/4-1/3 cup rice bran syrup (depending how sweet you like)
Plant milk to thin (a few tablespoons-1/4 cup should be plenty!)
1. Mix all dry ingredients together in a bowl.
2. Get a small saucepan and add tahini and rice bran syrup together over low heat and stir to combine.
3. Add the plant-milk, the amount will depend on how runny your tahini is, and stir to combine.
4. Once the mixture is warm, smooth and caramel-like, remove from the heat and pour over the dry ingredients. Stir very well until combined.
5. Line a baking pan/rectangular cake tin with parchment paper, wet hands slightly to prevent stickiness and press the mixture down firmly. Top with cinnamon, extra sea salt + minced rosemary.
6. One the mixture is even, place in freezer for 30 minutes to set, then enjoy :) I like to keep mine in the freezer for extra chewiness but you can keep it in the fridge as well.
These bars are packed with healthy plant-based fats to make your skin glow!
I adapted the recipe from the very talented Angela Liddon of the blog 'Oh She Glows' and these are by far the most delicious bars I have tried in a long time! Nutty, chewy, hints of sweetness and warming spices and they leave you satisfied, energised and nourished, without any bloating or heaviness.
I decided to recreate these bars with a few substitutes because my partner was experiencing dry skin, and with some added plant based omegas, three days later he was saying how smooth and healthy his skin felt!! Food is medicine :)
Here is a link to the original recipe as well :) http://ohsheglows.com/2016/09/26/new-mama-glo-bars-lactation-friendly-nut-free/
These bars are nut free, refined sugar free, gluten free & extremely versatile, I cut them into squares to top my smoothie bowl, had whole as a snack, adapted into a dessert.... Try them and let me know what you think!!
