Perfect post-workout snack to refuel and reenergize your body!

2 cups of nuts/seeds (almonds, cashews, walnuts, sunflower seeds)
2 big handfuls of shredded coconut
1/2 cup raw cacao powder
2 tbsp chia seeds
1/3 cup @melrosehealth choc hazelnut butter
1/4 cup @melrosehealth coconut oil

Optional extras:
1/2 cup protein powder (I use @paleoproproducts)
Few drops of liquid sweetener
2 tsp cinnamon
1/2 tsp ground vanilla

* You can buy most of these ingredients from @thesourcebulkfoods.

Blend the nuts in a food processor or blender until finely chopped.Pour blended nuts into a mixing bowl, add the rest of the dry ingredients and mix until combinedAdd melted coconut oil to the dry ingredients, and combine well. Add a natural sweetener if you like it sweeter. If the mixture is really wet, add some extra chia seeds (or almond meal, psyllium husks etc) to thicken it up. If it’s too dry, add some extra coconut oil.Line a baking pan with baking paper. Tip the mixture in, press it down and smooth out with the back of a spoon. Pop in the fridge for 30 minutes or so to set.When set and hard enough to cut, lift the whole lot out on to a chopping board. Cut into squares, rectangles or whatever shape you are feeling! Enjoy!
