Raw Superfood Protein Bars

Ingredients:

3/4 almonds - any nut will work (e.g. cashews)
1 cup raisins - any dried fruit will work (e.g. dates, apricots)
2 tbs cacao nibs
1 tbs hemp protein powder (any protein will work)
1/2 cup trail or seed mix (e.g. pura veda)
1 tsp optional Superfoods Maca (e.g. spirulina, maqui, acai or chia seeds)

Directions:

  1. Place all ingredients into your Vitamix container and secure the lid
  2. Turn your variable speed to number 5 and pulse your machine on and off for about 3 seconds each time. Make sure that you are holding the top of your machine.
  3. After pulsing, turn your machine up to variable speed 10 and then immediately override to HIGH speed
  4. Use your tamper really well to push all the ingredients down to the blade. **This is very important**
  5. Once it has formed a nice dough, stop your Vitamix and turn the container upside down onto a chopping board. If it doesn't fall out by itself give it a little bit of help with a spatula etc
  6. Form into a nice rectangle and cut into the desired serving size. You can also roll the mixture into little balls and roll them in shredded coconut
  7. Can be kept in an airtight container in the fridge for a few days
  8. It is best eaten straight away as it is nice and warm
