Chocolate Coconut Raw Food Energy Bars. ( an alternate to Brownies ) 

Print Friendly 

Description:
This is a perfect energy bar full of nuts, berries and seeds that will curb your hunger and look after any cravings. As it is full of nuts and seeds it is a great protein source and would be a good snack.

Ingredients:
2 C pitted Dates
1/3 C agave nectar
½ C cashew butter
1 C ground almonds
½ C pumpkin seeds
½ C Hemp seeds
¼ C chia seeds
¼ C sesame seeds
½ dried Goji berries
½ C coconut
2/3 C organic chocolate chips or cocoa nibs.


Directions:
Mix all ingredients well in food processor. Spoon into 8 x 8 pan. ( I used a 9 x 13”) Refrigerate for at least 3 hours before cutting. Cut very small as they are filling, and individually wrap.
It filled the food processor, so I ended up processing it in two batches. I added a bit of cocoa powder as well, used hazelnut butter instead of cashew, and added nearly ¼ C warm water to help it mix. Maybe try adding some cayenne? Yum. Could be rolled into balls.

Wellness Tip
Maintain Long-Term Weight Loss
A recent article in the American Journal of Clinical Nutrition (July 2005) reports that once you've lost weight, keeping it off actually gets easier with time. The article identified 6 important behaviors: 1. Get active and stay active; 2. Eat a diet low in calories and fat; 3. Don't skip breakfast; 4. Hit the scales at least once per week; 5. Maintain a steady eating pattern; and 6. Catch 'slips' before they turn into bigger problems.

Recipe
Baked Brussels Sprouts with Cranberries
Category: Side Dishes
Description: This red and green side dish is the perfect accompaniment to your Christmas dinner.
Brussels sprouts are available year round; however, they are at their best from autumn through early spring when they are at the peak of their growing season. Cooking methods include boiling, steaming and roasting. To ensure even cooking throughout, buds of a similar size are usually chosen. Some cooks will cut a cross in center of the stem to aid the penetration. Whatever cooking method is employed, overcooking is avoided.
Plant phytonutrients found in Brussels sprouts enhance the activity of the body's natural defense systems to protect against disease, including cancer.
