Makes 18 bars
Macros: 178 cal, fat 11g, carbs 15g, protein 5g, fibre 3g
1 c. raw almonds
1 ½ c. large flaked oats
1 c. unsweetened shredded coconut
½ c. hemp hearts
1/8 tsp. sea salt
½ c. + 1 Tbsp. brown rice syrup
1/3 c. smooth almond butter
1 tsp. vanilla
¼ c. Genuine Health omega3+, natural orange flavour
2 tsp. packed orange zest
Lightly grease a 9×9 square pan and line it with parchment paper, leaving excess hanging over the sides to make it easier to remove the bars once they are set.
In a food processor, pulse the almonds until they are coarsely ground.
In a large bowl, add the almonds along with the oats, coconut, hemp hearts and salt and stir to combine.
In a small pot stir together the brown rice syrup and the almond butter and cook over low heat, stirring, until smooth. Stir in the vanilla and Genuine Health omega3+ oil.
Stir the almond butter mixture into the dry mixture along with the orange zest and mix until well combined.
Press the mixture very firmly into the prepared pan (I use the bottom of a flat glass) and set aside for at least 20 minutes before cutting them into approximately 18 bars with a sharp knife
