Umm... wow. Yum. Yum.Yum. For real. This is some serious goodness. I am typically a 'one is enough' gal but these had me reaching for another one immediately after my first one. And so it began...
I am calling these 'Homemade Mustang Bars' because I got the idea from Paleo Treats. Note, I have not actually had their 'Mustang Bars.' And call me crazy, but I'm not going to spend $45.00 for 10 bars. But they looked interesting, so I looked at the ingredient list and made my own (omitting the almond flour and adding macadamia nuts). Obviously, I have no idea the portions that they used to make theirs so I basically did mine based on experience and what I had on hand.
Homemade Mustang Bars
1/3 cup pumpkin seeds, lightly salted
1/3 cup (crunchy) almond butter
1/3 cup raw walnuts, crumbled
1/3 cup unsweetened coconut flakes
1/4 cup raw macadamia nuts
1/4 cup raisins
2 tbls vanilla
3 tbls honey
1/3 cup coconut oil (melted)
Well, my food processor is still taking some time off so I mixed this together by hand. Simply add all of the ingredients in one by one in the order that it is listed above, mixing the melted (30 seconds will do) coconut oil and honey in last.
Form bars and wrap in cellophane and store in the fridge.
Yields ~ 8 bars
Now, having had these, I will say I would definitely pay $4.50 for one bar. So, mad props to Paleo Treats.
I need another word for YUM...
