Raw Cacao Bar
Phil’s Bar This is Dr Phil Maffetone’s Cacoa Bar formula. Have them on-hand for a quick meal or snack, workout or race energy, and even travel food. Of course, they are a great dessert when that chocolate craving is getting the better of you. In addition to having a low glycemic index, being easy to digest, being a complete protein and full of healthy fats, they are delicious.
- 3 cups whole almonds
- 2/3 cup powdered egg white
- 4 tablespoons pure powdered cacao
- 1/2 cup unsweetened shredded coconut
- Pinch of sea salt
- 1/3 cup honey
- 1/3 cup hot water
- 1-2 teaspoons vanilla
Grind dry ingredients (I use a Vitamix)). In a separate bowl mix honey, hot water and vanilla, then blend into dry ingredients and mix well (you may have to mix it all by hand if your mixer isn’t real efficient). If the batter is too wet, add a bit more dry ingredient; if too dry add a bit more liquid. Adjust water/honey ratio for less or more sweetness. Shape into bars. You can also press the batter into a dish (about one-half to one inch thick) and cut into squares. Keep refrigerated (they’ll still last a week or more out of the refrigerator).
