Super-Yum Bars

I wasn’t too sure what to call these bars, but really, all I can say about them is they are incredibly yum! They worked out even better than I imagined them too and the mix of cacao butter and orange really give them a creamy, zingy kick that makes them taste really decadent, compared to a regular trail bar. These keep well in the fridge, transport well and are loved by kids and adults alike. Make up a tray and enjoy!

Method:

Place all of the dry ingredients in a large bowl and mix well.

In a saucepan over a low heat, melt the coconut oil, cacao butter, peanut better, vanilla and coconut nectar.

Pour the wet ingredients over the dry and mix very well to combine. Transfer the mixture to a lined slice tin and press down very well. I placed another sheet of baking paper over top to smooth out and press down well.

Refrigerate for 2-3 hours until firm and then cut into bars.

If you wish to add the chocolate drizzle, I simply melted down some dark raw chocolate that I buy in bulk from my local health food store. You can melt down a block of any chocolate you love and drizzle over top. Return to the fridge again to set.
