Chocolate Fig Coconut Slices


Congrats on making it to the weekend!  I think you deserve a treat:)  Here is a new raw 'Sarah Bar' recipe that I tested out on the ELM Sunrise Bootcamp recruits this week!  Based on the post taste audio (oooooooh...mmmmmm...that's gooooood) I think they were a success.  But why don't you be the judge?

 These 'slices' are raw, vegan and gluten free for folks who need these options...and they taste great for everyone who needs that too;)  A natural alternative to store bought, packaged energy bars, these slices make a great on the go energy snack you can feel good about putting in your body (and your kids bellies;). The figs and coconut give them a nice little crunch;)

You can find recipes just like this in my little cookbook NRG: Foods that will move you.  You can order your own copy through the ELM website or even download an e-copy and start making recipes today!

Chocolate Fig Coconut Slices
1 cup walnuts  
1 cup almonds 
1 cup medjool dates
1 cup dried figs
4 tbs dark coco powder
4 tbs coconut oil lightly melted
4 tbs coconut flakes (organic, unsweetened)
1-2 tsp molasses
1-2 tsp water as needed 
1/4 tsp sea salt
*All ingredients are 'ish' so adjust as needed:) 

Grind almonds and walnuts in food processor until ground then add all remaining ingredients, reserving 2 tbs of coconut flakes.  Process until combined well and add 1-2 teaspoons of water if needed to bind mixture.  Finish by pulsing in the coconut flakes.  Spread on plastic wrap or parchment and roll the mixture into a log shape about 1.5 inches in diameter.  

Set in the fridge and cut into 1/2 inch slices for easy to grab snacks!  You can also press the mixture into a pan and cut into bars, or roll into balls.  Your choice!

Enjoy and happy Friday!
