Homemade Nakd bars – from the oven to the freezer!

Well I was attempting to make my own Nakd bars but it didn’t quite turn out that way so I decided to just make my own version which kinda turned out to be flapjacks. Not entirely sure actually. But I made it in a bread loaf tin so it kinda came out like a loaf haha! Well I must say they may not be Nakd bars but they are going down a treat! They’re the ideal afternoon snack in work! Here are those bad boys! photo 1 (14) photo 2 (11) photo 3 (7)

Whats in em?! 

1/3 Jar of Coconut Oil (melted)

20-25 dates – chopped small

Bag of cashew nuts – 200g

Half a bag of salad seeds (sunflower, pumkin etc) – 100g

2 large table spoons of Raw Cocoa (optional)

I just put this all in a bowl until it gets to an acceptable consistency. I then however put it in the loaf tin to bake in the oven? WHY OH WHY? Obvo the coconut oil then started melting so I took it out and put it in the freezer instead. If I had brains, I’d be dangerous. So crunchy out of the freezer with a cup of Barry’s tea. It’s like a guilt free treat!

Get your bread tins out and experiment!!
