Frozen Coconut Macadamia DIY Energy Bars Recipe

Ingredients

  • 1 cup dried coconut
  • 1.5 cups macadamia nuts
  • 1/2 cup coconut oil
  • 2 tbsp. chia seeds
  • 1 tsp. vanilla extract
  • Pinch of salt

Instructions:

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

The length of time it takes for the coconut to toast will depend on its size and thickness, so watch it closely to prevent burning. Once the coconut is toasted to your liking, remove it from the oven and allow it to cool.

Place the macadamia nuts in a food processor and blend. Once the nuts begin to crumble and turn into a paste, add the coconut oil and process until smooth. You may need to scrape the sides of the food processor down once or twice in between processing.

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 a 8”x8” pan with parchment paper and pour the macadamia mixture in. Place the pan in the freezer for at least 30 minutes.

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

Keep leftover pieces in the freezer.
