Primal Power Bars

As requested by Jaxz the recipe for Primal Power Bars…..

These are awesome! I found the recipe on the new MDA Forum http://www.marksdailyapple.com/forum/topic/primal-power-bars and they really are great. The recipe originated at Elana’s Pantry http://www.elanaspantry.com/power-bars/. Here’s my little adjustment of course 🙂

Gluten and Dairy Free Power Bars

1 cup almond flour/ground almonds
1 cup chopped walnuts – fresh
½ cup flax meal
½ cup shredded coconut (unsweetened)
½ cup salted roasted almond butter
½ cup coconut oil
1 tablespoon dark cane sugar or Raw honey (depending on taste)
1 tablespoon vanilla extract

1. Combine almond flour, flax meal, coconut, sugar.
2. In a small sauce pan, melt coconut oil over very low heat,
3. Remove coconut oil from stove, stir in almond butter and vanilla
4. Add coconut oil mixture to dry ingredients which will form a coarse paste
5. Press mixture into an 8 x 8 glass baking dish
6. Chill in refrigerator for 1 hour, until mixture hardens

Topping: Dark Chocolate Ganache

113 Dark Chocolate (I used 85%)
90mls Coconut Cream
1-2 tablespoons Coconut Oil
1. In a small saucepan, heat coconut cream and coconut oil, take off heat and add chocolate stiring continuously until smooth.
2. Spread melted chocolate gnache over bars; return to refrigerator for 30 minutes, until chocolate firms. It won’t harden completely but it’s very yummy. You can just use melted down chocolate for topping.
3. Remove from refrigerator, cut into bars and serve
