It’s just the right amount of sweet, packed with yummy nuts and coconut, and it also serves as a greatΒ ‘pick-me-up’ or energy bar.

I posted the recipe on Instagram recently and couldn’t remember what exactly I’ve put in – but here is the proper recipe now:

You will need:

1 cup sunflower seeds
5 tbs coconut oil
2 tbs powdered xylitol {or whichever legit sweetener you prefer…}
2 tbs cacao powder {dark, unsweetened}
1/2 cup dessicated coconut
1/2 cup toasted hazelnuts
5 ml vanilla essence or 3 drops vanilla extract

First, you need to make your sunflower butter:

Place the sunflower seeds in a blender, along with 1 tbs of coconut oil and the xylitol.
Blend until you have a butter.

Next, toast the hazelnuts and place in the bottom of a parchment-lined loaf pan.

Mix the sunflower butter with the cacao powder, vanilla, 4 tbs coconut oil and dessicated coconut.

Pour it into the loaf pan on top of the hazelnuts and refridgerate until set.

Cut into 8 slices {or more} and enjoy!
