HOMEMADE GLUTEN FREE POWER BARS
For this following recipe I used 1 pkg. Organic Trek Mix (unsweetened chocolate chips, almonds, peanuts, pumpkin seeds, sunflower seeds, raisins and cranberries). If you don’t have a Trader Joe’s close to where you live, you can buy your favorite ingredients and mix them yourself. You can use: unsweetened shredded coconut, unsweetened chocolate chips, almonds, pecans, peanuts, cranberries, raisins, sunflower seeds, pumpkin seeds and flax seeds. Remember: these should all be organic and/or raw ingredients.
1 pkg. organic Trek Mix (makes 2 cups)
¼ cup organic unsalted peanut butter
¼ cup coconut oil
1 tbs. agave nectar
a pinch of celtic sea salt
½ tbs. vanilla extract
Place 2 cups of Trek Mix in a blender and pulse briefly, for about 10 seconds.
In a small saucepan, melt coconut oil over very low heat. Once melted, remove from stove and mix in the agave nectar and vanilla extract.
Add coconut mixture and peanut butter into blender and pulse until mixture forms into a thick paste.
Press mixture into an 8x8-baking dish and refrigerate until it hardens (about an hour).
Cut into bars.
