Short and sweet!
This weather makes my so tired. And when I am working in the evenings I do need a lot of motivation to get out from the house. These bars do a great job. Protein+fat+chocolate flavour=energy
Sunflower Bliss Bars
You will need:
1/2c sunflower seed butter
2 tbsp maple syrup
2 tbsp carob* powder
1/4 c hemp seeds
1/4 c coconut flakes
Start by blending sunflower butter with maple syrup until smooth. Add hemp seeds, coconut flakes and carob powder blend again until mixture becomes kind of like dough. Spread it on the plate and put into a freezer for a bit.
*carob powder-If u are allergic to chocolate (pure cacao) you can use carob instead. Carob doesn’t contain any caffeine or theobromine, two mild stimulants found in chocolate so it is a great alternative for chocolate substitutes. It’s a legume from the carob tree. It has similar texture and flavour to traditional chocolate. Carob is not as bitter as cocoa so if you are using carob instead of cacao in your recipe, you should cut down on your sweetener.
I don’t have problems with eating pure chocolate but I like using carob just to switch it up and to reduce sugar intake in my recipes.
