Citrus Glow Bars

I made these a couple of weeks ago, ate some, shared some, stashed some (freezer) so now this week I’ll have snacks ready! I love the colour from the turmeric – it’s pretty hey!?!?! These are such a great snack mid afternoon (hi there 3pm…) and keep your appetite at bay until dinner. Make them and share with me across the gram????

 

RECIPE¬†☀️ In a food processor combine 2 cups raw cashews with 1 cup shredded coconut and blitz to a crumb. Add 1/2 cup fresh squeezed orange juice, 1 1/2 teaspoons orange zest, 1/4 teaspoon cinnamon, 1/4 teaspoon ground turmeric, 2 tablespoons honey/maple/rice malt syrup (whichever is in the pantry and you prefer) and either 3 tablespoons coconut oil or MCT oil if you have it handy which I did so why not whack it in there. (I also added 4 serves of collagen powder, again if handy throw it in, if not, don’t worry, go with the rest of the ingredients and it will still be AWESOME.) Blitz it all together so it’s a sticky raw ‘dough’, then press into a square lined cake or loaf tin and set in the fridge for a few hours.

You could roll them if you like the ball effect but to be honest I cbf with ball rolling it’s my LEAST favourite job in the kitchen!
