Gluten Free, Soy Free, Dairy Free Paleo Friendly Energy Bar

The main challenge of being an athlete on Paleo is that most sports nutrition products are not Paleo friendly. We have been looking for a Paleo friendly energy bar. Lana bar is probably the only product which is Paleo friendly. However, we are not a fan of Lana.

The BF is doing a 60K race this weekend and requested for a Paleo Energy bar. I did some research but could find a recipe which I like.  Last resort....I decided to concoct my own recipe.  

It actually came out really good.... according to the BF :)

1/4 cup of silver almonds
1/2 cup of sunflower seed
1 cup of apricot
1/4 cup of almond meal
1/4 cup of coconut oil
1/4 cup of almond butter
1 teaspoon of vanilla
2 tablespoon of honey ( more if you like it sweeter)
1 egg

1. Chop the first 3 ingredients in a good processor till a course mixture
2. Combined the coconut oil, almond butter, vanilla and honey till a smooth mixture ( Tip: you may need to warm the coconut oil and almond butter to create a smooth consistency. Microwave for about 20-30 sec)
3. Combine the nut and fruit mixture to the coconut oil mixture
4. Fold in almond meal
5. Add the egg and combine
6. Bake in a 325 oven for 20-25 mins
7. Cool and cut into pieces.

Easy ... :)
