*Dairy Free, Nut Free, Refined Sugar Free, Vegan, **Gluten Free option

*Thermomix Instructions provided in bold italics

Ingredients:

  • 200g Coconut Oil (or good quality butter can be used if dairy tolerant) *Reserve 20g to melt with your chocolate at the end.
  • 150g Coconut Sugar
  • 200g Rice Malt Syrup (date syrup and raw honey are both good substitutes)
  • 60g Pepitas (pumpkin seeds)
  • 60g Sunflower Seeds
  • 100g Desiccated Coconut
  • 200g Vita Brits (or use oat bix for a lower GI option, but NOT GF option. **Gluten Free Vita Brits or Weetbix maybe used for GF option)

Topping:

  • 200g Sugar-Free Chocolate  (I use Well Naturally stevia-sweetened chocolate chips (found in health food section of most supermarkets and in health food stores.)  You may wish to instead use another brand of good quality dark chocolate.

 

Method:

  • Lightly grease a 22 x 30cm rectangular slice tin, or similar (coconut oil spray is great for this!) and line with baking paper.
  • Place the coconut oil (*or butter), coconut sugar and syrup (*or honey) to a small saucepan and melt together over medium heat, stirring until smooth. (TM โ€“ 5mins/ Varoma /speed 2)
  • Add melted mix to a large bowl containing all of the remaining ingredients (except chocolate) and combine with a wooden spoon until thoroughly combined (TM โ€“ simply add remaining ingredients (except chocolate) to TM bowl 30 sec / speed 2.  For younger children and fussy older ones I recommend processing the  mix for a further 5-7 secs/ Speed 5 for a smoother texture.)
  • Press the mixture into the prepared pan. *TIP: Lay another piece of baking paper over the top of your slice and, using the upturned lid of your coconut oil spray (the flat side) use a circular motion to press and flatten your mix firmly into the tray.  This will ensure that your bars will bind well and they will look SO much better too ๐Ÿ˜‰
  • Melt together the chocolate and the reserved coconut oil or butter.  Either in a double boiler or in the Thermomix. (TM โ€“  Grate chocolate for  5 secs / speed 8. Add coconut oil and melt for 2 minutes at 60หšC on speed 3, or until melted.)  Pour the melted chocolate evenly over the base and leave for least an hour (overnight is best!)
  • When cooled, lift entire slab out of tray and place on a cutting board.  Using a sharp knife, cut into bars.   Place into a sealed container in the fridge or wrap individually and freeze for convenient lunch box fillers.

Makes about 24 bars
