Packed with Antioxidants (cocoa, almonds, pomegranate) and bursting with flavor. Healthy yet satisfying. Yes, I like to exaggerate but you get my point. Did I mention it’s grain free? YUM!

Ingredients

Process

Note, these instructions are written assuming the standard serving size, since you have modified the number of servings, these steps may need to be modified for best results
  1. Preheat oven to 350F.
  2. Grind up your almonds in food processor or vitamix.
  3. Next add in the coconut and almost all of your pomegranate and grind again. Save a small handful of pomegranate seeds for later.
  4. Pour into a large bowl and mix in cocoa powder and pea protein or egg white protein (this is for volume).
  5. In a separate small mixing bowl combine your honey or maple syrup, 1/2 cup of hot water, and vanilla. Stir all together and add to your dry ingredients..
  6. Add in your vanilla and Sea salt.
  7. I usually test batter here to see if it's sweet enough.
  8. If the batter gets too thick, just add more hot water or even a little honey. If it's too wet, add more powder or a flour of choice (such as coconut or peanut flour).
  9. Mix well with hands then press into a parchment lined baking dish. Sprinkle the rest of your pomegranate seeds on top.
  10. Bake at 350F for 25- 30 minutes. Check at 25 minutes just in case your oven bakes fast.
  11. Makes anywhere between 9-12 bars. You choose the size!

Notes

If you can't find pea protein egg white protein (I used Jay Robbs), you can use chia flour, 100% whey protein isolate, or Brown Rice Protein. But the texture and the baking time will be a little different, so adjust accordingly. if you can't find egg white powder or egg white protein, you can use meringue powder but it will have more sugar.
