Wholefood pantry bars
A rough guide
  • 2½ cups mixed dry ingredients (Puffed grains, rolled whole grains, chopped nuts, seeds, shredded coconut, cacao nibs etc)
  • ¼ cup oil (eg coconut oil, melted butter)
  • ¼ cup nut or seed butter
  • ½ cup pureed fruit (mashed banana, apple puree, pumpkin puree)
  • 2 - 3 Tbsp sweetener, optional
  • ½ tsp salt
  • A few squares (approx 30g) dark chocolate for drizzling
My favorite mix
  • 1½ cups mixed puffed grains
  • ½ cup shredded coconut
  • ¼ cup chopped peanuts
  • ¼ cup cacao nibs
  • ¼ cup coconut oil
  • ¼ cup peanut butter
  • 2 - 3 very ripe, mashed bananas
  • 1 Tbsp raw honey
  • ½ tsp salt
  • 30g dark chocolate for drizzling
  1. In a small saucepan, add the oil, nut butter, sweetener and salt. Stir over a very low heat until combined - it should be fairly runny at this point.
  2. Add all dry ingredients to a large bowl and combine. Pour in the melted nut butter mix and stir, and then fold through the fruit puree.
  3. Pour into a small, lined tin (I use a loaf pan) and pat down so that the top is flat. Place into the freezer while you prepare the chocolate.
  4. In the same small saucepan, add the chocolate and melt over a very low heat, being careful not to overheat it. I usually hold the saucepan above the hot plate so that the heat is as low as possible.
  5. Remove the tray from the freezer, drizzle with the chocolate, and then return to the freezer to set, usually around 1 - 2 hours.
  6. Cut into small bars or squares, and store in an airtight container in the freezer.
