Nutrition

The famous paleo bar recipe!!

So as promised here it is……

I first tried these awesome bars from my mentor Dominic Munnelly, not only is he a top trainer that I am learning loads from but he has some amazing nutrition recipes. Most of them feature on this website

Most of you guys were lucky enough to have tried them this week and don’t worry if you didn’t make it in to train with me this week, there shall be more!(Maybe, once u guys still continue to lift some weight and do plenty of mobility work)

Ingredients

  • 200g mixed nuts (I used a mixed bag of walnuts, cashew nuts and hazelnuts)
  • 1 bag of desicated Coconut (200g coconut flakes)
  • 1 tea spoon vanilla extract (bought in tesco)
  • 100-150g of dark choc (I went with 85% but anything between 70-90% works, bought in LIDL)
  • 200g of coconut oil (yes coconut oil, love the stuff and you should use it a lot, scroll down my blog to look at the benefits)
  • 2-3 spoons of my favorite meridian nut butter (cashew or almond)
  • Handful of dried fruit (used raisins and mango this time)

Method

  • Blend mixed nuts, handful of dried fruit and coconut together (I used my nutri bullet which is on everyone’s Christmas list this year)
  • Add 200g of coconut oil and 2-3 spoons of nut butter to a heated pot and stir slowly on slow heat
  • Add 1 teaspoon of vanilla extract to same pot and stir
  • Add the blended mixture of nuts and coconut to the same pot on low heat
  • Heat 100-150g of 75-85% dark choc into a separate pot
  • Apply all the ingredients from the main pot to dark choc and mix together
  • Coat a small amount of coconut oil onto baking tray and apply the chocolaty mixture onto tray
  • Leave in fridge for 2 hours

Added small bit more of coconut and fruit and drizzled on like pic below
