I used to buy these from the shops but I decided to try and make my own at home and they taste so good. This recipe only makes three so if you want more than three you could double it. For this I use all organic ingredients.
This is one finished raw food bar

Take the lid off and scrape down the sides.
Process again and scrape down the sides.
Remove the blade and mix in any bits that were missed.
Mixture Ready to be pressed into the container.
Line a small rectangle container with baking paper coming up over the sides. This will make it easier to take out when set.
Spoon mixture into the container and spread out as you press it down.

Place in the fridge for about 15-20 minutes to set.
When set pull out of the container and cut into bars.
It is a root that is a part of the radish family. It has lots of health benefits, and is good in smoothies and recipes like this. It isn't good to use it in tints that are too hot as it looses it's nutritional value. You could use instead lucuma powder ( tastes like caramel) these both just add extra nutritional value to the bar but are not essential so they can be left out. The coconut oil is what makes it solidify so it's a must.
