Fiber Blast! Raw Bars

Fiber Blast Raw Vegan Bars | Batoane raw vegane de susan si nuci

These raw bars are a perfect snack for kids! Also great for a breakfast on the go.

Oh YUM! I wanted to make these raw bars for a very, very long time and finally I made them this morning. These raw bars are the perfect snack for kids! They’ll love the sweet taste, crunchy texture and chocolately flavor. They’re really good for adults too. Absolutely ideal for a breakfast on-the-go or as a healthy snack during the day. A whole tray of  raw bars will last you one week.

Now about the healthy facts! These  raw bars are really rich in calcium (from raw sesame seeds), vitamins & minerals (from all the other goodies) and high in fibers. Psyllium and flax seeds are great for digestion and should be eaten daily. Raw, natural honey is also an excellent imunostimulent. Be careful though to only buy natural honey.

Here are two articles which will help you find out more about honey: Amazing Source of Vitamins.Bee Pollen (you’ll find out more about bee pollen and other health benefits of honey and bee products) and Cinnamon – the miracle spice (the article is mainly about cinnamon but you’ll also find out how you can test honey to know if it’s sugar-free and healthy).

I will try other raw bars recipes soon. I love them and I already have another idea! Please feel free to give your opinions in the comments. I would love to hear about other raw bars recipes.

These raw bars are a perfect snack for kids! Also great for a breakfast on the go.
Serves: 15 raw bars
Ingredients
  • 1 cup raw sesame seeds
  • 1 handful hazelnuts
  • 1 handful raw pumpkin seeds
  • 2 tbsps ground flax seeds
  • 2 tbsps ground psyllium seeds
  • ½ cup rolled oats
  • 1 handful raisins
  • 1 tbsp carob powder
  • 1 cup raw honey (maybe less)
Instructions
  1. Mix all of the above ingredients in a large bowl.
  2. There are 2 ways to cook these: using a dehydrator – the easiest or using you oven – the riskiest.
  3. If you are using a dehydrator things are really simple. Place a cooking sheet on the dehydrator tray and spread mix above on a thin layer (a max. of 1cm thick) Dehydrate until crunchy.
  4. If you don’t have a dehydrator things are a little complicated. Place cooking paper on an oven tray and spread the mix above.
  5. Heat your oven at the lowest temperature possible. When heated place the tray inside and stop the oven. Check after 30 minutes or so. The raw bars won’t be ready so fast, you’ll have to remove the tray from the oven, reheat it, place the tray back inside, stop the oven and repeat this process untill the bars are dehydrated.
Notes
To spread the sticky mix easily just place a plastic foil on top and start pressing. It will spread evenly this way.

    as vrea sa intreb ..semintele,le punem in apa la inmuiat citeva ore si dupa aceea facem retzeta? multumesc!!!

    Am facut fara fulgi de ovaz :) Au iesit foarte bune! Nu am stiut cat sa le las in cuptor la deshidratat, le-am tinut 4 ore, mi-a fost teama sa nu se arda apoi :) Si nu stiu nici daca trebuiau sa iasa crocante, ale mele nu sunt, dar sunt delicoase :D
    Multumesc pentru inca o reteta minunata :)

      Eu le-am tinut pana s-au uscat si au devenit usor crocante. Le-am testat din ora in ora. Cred ca le-am tinut mai mult, cam 6 ore. Am tinut usa deschisa la cuptor si l-am dat pe minim. Ma bucur ca ti-au placut!

      Si eu am descoperit recent ca sunt intoleranta la gluten :( Nu stiu ce ar merge mai bine, cred ca trebuie sa testezi. Ideea e ca trebuie ceva care sa absoarba umezeala de la celelalte ingrediente. Poate niste fulgi de cocos? Daca incerci asa sa imi zici cum ti-au iesit. Sunt tare curioasa :)

    Am făcut si eu in aceasta seara reteta, insa m-am confruntat cu problema ca nu prea s-au legat…atâtea nuci…ce sa fac? Recunosc ca nu am pus taratele…acesta sa fie motivul?

    1. Ruxandra

      Taratele nu au treaba cu legatul. Cred ca nu ai pus cum trebuie cantitatea de miere. Mierea le leaga cum trebuie si le lipeste odata deshidratate. Le-ai deschidratat, nu?
