It’s nice to think that our kids love to eat healthy, nutritious

food instead of sugary junk, but let’s be honest – they

mostly don’t.

These granola bars are the ultimate lunchbox treat; they’re full of rich caramel and chocolate flavours and have a super satisfying crunch.

The best part? They’re sugar and grain free and packed with healthy nuts and seeds.

Shhhh…don’t tell the kids.

Enjoy!

 

INGREDIENTS:

1 cup of pecan halves

1 cup of flaked almonds

1 cup of sunflower seeds

1 cup of unsweetened shredded coconut

½ cup of almond butter

1/3 cup of Sukrin Caramel Syrup

1/3 cup of coconut oil

1 tablespoon of cocoa powder

½ cup of ChocZero Milk Chocolate Chips

½ teaspoon of cinnamon

½ teaspoon of nutmeg

1 teaspoon of salt

1 teaspoon of vanilla extract

 

 

 

METHOD:

Grease and line a 9 x 9 inch pan

Chop the pecans roughly into small pieces

Place pecans in a bowl with the almonds, sunflower seeds, coconut, spices and salt

Heat the almond butter, Sukrin Caramel Syrup, coconut oil and cocoa in a small saucepan over medium heat until melted and combined

Add to the dry ingredients and mix until all the dry ingredients are well coated.

Add 2/3 of the ChocZero Milk Chocolate Chips at the end to avoid melting.

Tip the mixture into the pan, sprinkle the remaining choc chips over the top and press down firmly with the back of a spoon until smooth.

Chill in the freezer for an hour before transferring to the fridge.

Remove from the pan and cut into bars.

I made 10 large bars, but you could halve them and still have a great lunchbox treat.

 

Wrap each bar and store in the fridge, in a container, for up to 2 weeks.
