Vegan, Gluten Free

Ingredients:

  • 2 cups gluten free oats or quinoa flakes
  • 1/2 cup flaked almonds
  • 1 1/2 cups dried shredded coconut
  • 1 tsp vanilla extract
  • 100g melted coconut oil
  • 2 tbsp acai powder
  • 2 tbsp unhulled tahini
  • 1/2 cup maple syrup or coconut nectar
  • 2 tbsp goji berries

METHOD:

  1. Toast your flaked almonds and oats in a frypan, making sure you mix the mix with a spatula/wooden spoon for about 3 minutes on medium heat. Transfer oats and almonds to a mixing bowl and toast your coconut separately on a medium-low heat for roughly 4 minutes. Stop when coconut is mostly all golden brown. Transfer to the bowl with the other dry ingredients!
  2. Put the coconut oil, tahini and maple syrup in the saucepan, over medium heat and bring to the boil. Turn the heat to low-med when it starts to boil and stir for a few minutes. Once it starts to get frothy, stir for another 30 seconds and turn the heat off. **If you’re using coconut oil, don’t boil it, just heat gently until it melts, which should take under a minute, and then combine with the tahini and maple syrup**
  3. Add the acai powder and goji berries to the oats mixture and stir through. Slowly pour in your caramel looking mixture, adding in batches and mixing after each addition.
  4. Press the mixture into a tin lined with baking paper, and shove in the fridge overnight!
  5. Take out of the fridge and cut into muesli bar sizes! You can drizzle this with cacao sauce for a sweeter version! (Simply: 1/4 cup cacao powder, 1/4 cup coconut oil & 1/4 cup maple syrup!)

Enjoy!

    • Of course! You can use any kind of berries or even some fresh juice if you’d like, but remember that it will then have more liquid therefore the rest of the ingredients would need to be doubled (depending on how much juice you add!)
