Frozen Coconut Macadamia DIY Energy Bar Recipe

Some people feel like they shouldn’t be eating snacks, but there are many reasons you might be reaching for something to surprise yourself. Maybe you’re snowed in with work and your schedule has been scrapped. You might be a little more hungry than normal from yesterday’s hard workout. You might need a snack because you are about to start intermittent fasting or keto while your metabolism is adjusting. Good quality snacks are a good thing so you don’t get caught off guard. These homemade energy bars are perfect snacks filled with my favorite fats and very low in carbohydrates and sugar.

Frozen Coconut Macadamia Bars are incredibly easy to make and have a deliciously decadent taste and texture. Macadamia nuts and coconut oil provide a natural sweetness

Taste. Coconut flakes and chia seeds provide a crispness that contrasts perfectly with the otherwise smooth and creamy texture of the bars.

And that’s pretty much all these bars have to offer! Just put them in the freezer and 30 minutes later they’ll be ready. It is important to keep the bars frozen – if left out for too long they will start to melt. The cold texture makes them sometimes as tasty, almost like a keto ice cream bar. You can add more chia seeds if you want. You can also drizzle some nut butter or dark melted chocolate on the bars if you’d like.

Feel free to add more chia seeds if you’d like. You can also drizzle some nut butter or dark melted chocolate on the bars if you’d like. Make sure to keep them in the freezer so that they stay firm and firm. We used thick pieces of dried coconut, but you can use thinner coconut flakes as well.

Frozen Coconut Macadamia DIY Energy Bar Recipe

ingredients

  • 1 cup of dried coconut
  • 1.5 cups of macadamia nuts
  • 1/2 cup coconut oil
  • 2 TBSP. Chia seeds
  • 1 teaspoon. Vanilla extract
  • pinch of salt

Manual:

Preheat your oven to 350 degrees Fahrenheit. Place the coconut on a sheet pan or casserole dish and let it roast for 5-15 minutes, or until the coconut is golden.

The time it takes the coconut to toast depends on its size and thickness. Therefore, watch them closely to avoid burns. Once the coconut is roasted to your liking, take it out of the oven and let it cool.

Put the macadamia nuts in a food processor and mix. Once the nuts start to crumble and turn into a paste, add the coconut oil and process it until smooth. You may need to scrape the sides of the food processor once or twice between uses.

Add the toasted coconut, chia seeds, vanilla, and salt and pulse or blend until a chunky paste forms or until the coconut is just incorporated into the macadamia mixture.

Line an 8 “x 8” pan with parchment paper and pour the macadamia mixture into it. Put the pan in the freezer for at least 30 minutes.

Take the pan out of the freezer and lift out the parchment. Use a knife to cut the macadamia coconut square into 12 or 16 pieces.

Store leftover parts in the freezer.
