Raw Apricot and Cacao Bumper Bars Recipe + Giveaway

Top Mummy Blog new Zealand Top Raw recipeI love the classic old Kiwi Bumper Bar SO much but haven’t been able to bring myself to buy one for years due to a whopping 20.6 grams of sugar in each bar!  I do not practise a restrictive diet for either Dave and I or the kids but even I know that 20 grams is just way too much sugar per serve. I decided to try and recreate the delish apricot and chocolate flavour with some slightly more healthy ingredients including Vogel’s new Café-Style Toppers.  I wanted to keep this recipe raw so used the Raw Protein Mix ( paleo + no sugar added!) containing Sunflower Seeds, Linseeds, Cashews, Almonds and Pumpkin Seeds. This is a protein packed snack using easy, unfussy ingredients that will get your through the 3pm slump without heading for the nearest vending machine.

Raw Apricot and Cacao Bumper Bar Recipe


A delicious raw alternative to processed snack bars.

Ingredients

1 cup Brazil Nuts 1 cup Vogel’s Toppers Raw Protein Mix 1 cup Pitted Medjool Dates 3/4 cup dried apricots 2 cups Desiccated Coconut 1/2 cup Cacao Nibs 3 tbsp water

Method

Combine nuts, Raw Protein Mix, dates, apricots and coconut in a food processor (I use my NutriBullet Pro which got the job done but took a while as I had to blend in batches) until well combined. Add water gradually until crumbly mixture becomes sticky. Stir in cacao nibs and press mixture into a lined baking dish.  Pop in the fridge for at least 3 hours until firm then cut to desired size.  Store in fridge.

Vogel’s new Café-Style range is perfect for incorporating into raw baking recipes, bircher muesli and just lightening up your traditional cereal breakfast.  I’m not usually a cereal-for-breakfast kinda girl but this morning post-run, I added a handful of Vanilla & Almond Café-Style Light to the top of my smoothie and omg, best breakfast ever!  No gluten guys and less than 6g of sugar per serve!

I live in rural Auckland, New Zealand. Two boys, one big, one not so big and 2 boy dogs belong to me and I them. I love Coca Cola in all of its sugar-less forms and I love you internet. I take way too many pictures of my kids and collect them all here. This is what I am doing when I should be cleaning or cooking or doing other 'useful' things.
