Paleo Breakfast Bars

I don’t know about you but for me breakfast is tough. I tend to go the easy route – oatmeal, cereal, toast – all the things we can’t have with a Paleo diet. So, I decided to tweak my granola bar recipe so that I had something that I could grab easily in the mornings w/o needing the extra 30 min to make/eat breakfast (and wash dishes). I know, I know. But we live in a world of convenience, right? Anyway, here you go. Hope you enjoy…

(Note – this recipe has some honey in it. Normally I use brown rice syrup in my granola bars, but that isn’t Paleo. There is 50/50 consensus to whether honey is Paleo – on the one hand it’s natural and found in nature, if consumed in sparing quantities, but on the other hand it’s a sweetener and strict Paleo hardasses think it’s a no-no. I say, pick your battles. Also, I threw in some poppy seeds which you may not be able to see in the photo. I used what nuts I had in the cabinet, but I’d suggest that you substitute some of the nuts in my recipe with sunflower seeds and maybe pumpkin seeds – the smaller seeds might help the bars retain their shape a bit better when packed down. Also, next time I’d line the baking dish with parchment paper so that you can turn them onto a surface before cutting – so they don’t stick to the pan. This is a basic recipe that can really be revamped to suit whatever tastes you have.)

Paleo Breakfast Bars
1 1/4 cup blanched almond flour (almond meal is also fine)
1/4 teaspoon sea salt
1/2 teaspoon cinnamon
1/4 teaspoon baking soda (this is optional, but it’s natural and gives the bars more spunk)
1/4 cup coconut oil (melted, in liquid form)
1/4 cup all natural honey
1/2 cup unsweetened coconut
1/2 cup slivered almonds
1/2 cup pecan pieces
1/4 cup raisins (or any dried fruit – I like gold raisins for flavor)

Heat oven to 350. Grease 8×8 pan with coconut oil (this is also where I’d line it with parchment paper prior to coating to prevent sticking). Mix almond flour, salt, cinnamon and baking soda (if using) in small bowl. In large bowl, combine coconut oil and honey, mix well with a whisk to incorporate. Add dry mixture and combine. Now add all nuts and raising and mix well. Pour into baking dish and press into pan with your hands (you may want to wet your hands first to avoid sticking). Bake for about 20 minutes. Cool completely, cut and store on a sealed container.
