Some of you may have seen the link I posted onto Facebook last week all about on the go paleo. The link had loads of paleo friendly, on the go food. Following the paleo diet restricts you from just being able to grab a sandwich or most other forms of takeaway food (not a bad thing) when out and about, and meal planning and prep is essential, especially when it comes to breakfast time and you need to grab something quick before you head out the door.
Now I have a nutribullet which I love more and more everyday, I have been searching for different recipes that involve me using it in someway and so the idea of some paleo, on the go, nutribullet juzzed, granola bars was born.
They tasted delicious and after proclaiming whilst mixing that Suzie and I will be eating Granola for a year, all the bars actually disappeared in less than 2 days – whoops! Don’t make the same mistake!
I measured no quantities for these bars and just threw in what felt right, I recommend you do the same.
Dried fruit (the cranberries worked specifically well)
Mixed seeds – pumpkin, sunflower etc
1/2 a bottle honey
Generous tbsp nut butter
Juzz the nuts in a nutribullet or regular blender until some are ground and some are still quite chunky, add them to a bowl with the rest of the dry ingredients. Add in the honey and nut butter and use clean hands to bind together. Divide into bar shaped/sized portions onto some baking paper and bake in the oven until golden brown, flip over and bake again until both sides are golden.
Remove from the oven and cool in the fridge – do not make my mistake of thinking the bars had failed because they are still soft from the oven, this is, as Suz quite rightly pointed out, because honey and nut butter do not cook, they melt.
After chilling in the fridge for 30 minutes, remove and drizzle over some melted 85% dark chocolate, return to the fridge to set some more.
