These bars are not only paleo but ketogenic too (whoop!). They are nutty and sweet, perfect for a pick me up or a treat (hey – that rhymes!). You can change the nuts, nut butter and chocolate percentage to suit your tastebuds.
Place the nuts, almond butter, coconut, salt and vanilla into a blender. Pulse for a few seconds until you have a coarse mix
Melt the coconut oil in a pan then add in the erythritol and stevia drops
When fully melted pour into the blender then blitz until combined. The mixture should be mostly ground with a few crunchy pieces
Line a baking tray (I use either a small loaf tin lined with baking paper or 12 silicon muffin cups and make them individual portions – for the nut base they work out as approx 26g in each cup).
Place in the freezer for about 30 minutes or the fridge for a few hours
Once bars have chilled (1 hour)
When the mixture has hardened (approx 1 hour in the fridge or 30 minutes in the freezer) melt the chocolate in the microwave until it’s runny
Pour the chocolate over the nut mix and place back in the freezer or fridge until hardened
When the mixture has hardened, take out of the fridge (use the baking paper to pull it out of the tray/ tin) Use a knife to cut it into small bars – I got 12 small bars from mine but you can have them as small/ big as you like.
You can keep the bars in the fridge for about a week or freeze them and take out to defrost as you want them
