To make the nut bars:

  1. Toast the almonds, cashew nuts, buckinis, coconut and sunflower seeds until golden brown. We did this in a large pan but you can also do this in the oven.
  2. In a pot place all nut bar liquids (coconut oil, butter, rice malt syrup, nut butter and vanilla). Simmer until golden in colour, well combined and bubbling.
  3. Remove from the heat and stir through toasted nut mix and cacao nibs.
  4. Press into a lined tin using the back of a spoon.
  5. Place in the fridge to set for a minimum of one hour.
  6. Remove from the fridge and slice into desired pieces.

To make the protein chocolate:

  1. Melt the chocolate and coconut oil together in the microwave or over the stove. Add protein powder and mix well.
  2. Drizzle chocolate over the nut bars.
  3. Allow to set before enjoying.
  4. Best consumed within two weeks.
