Honey Walnut Winter Energy Bars

by Bill

Ingredients

2 cups Walnuts
1/2 cup Unsweetened Shredded Coconut
1 tsp Pure Vanilla Extract
Zest of half a Navel Orange
1/2 tsp Sea Salt
1/4 tsp Ground Ginger
1/2 cup + 1 Tbsp Raw Honey (total of 10 Tbsp)

Directions

Preheat oven to 350F. Line an 8x8 baking pan with parchment paper, leaving flaps on all 4 sides.

Roughly chop the walnuts by hand, in a hand chopper, in a blender, or in a food processor. Pieces should be about 1/4" at the largest.

Combine all ingredients except honey in a large bowl and stir until combined. Pour in the honey and mix with a fork until everything is evenly coated.

Spread mixture into the prepared baking dish, pressing down to pack it in and reach all edges and corners of the pan. You can use coconut-oiled hands to do this.

Bake in the preheated oven for 20 minutes.

Remove to a wire rack. Use the parchment flaps to press the bars down and compact them before they cool all the way.

After the bars have cooled about 30 minutes, lift the bars out of the pan by the parchment paper flaps and flip over onto a piece of parchment so the bottom is now the top. Reshape back into a square and press down a little if the flipping moved things around a little. Peel off the parchment paper.

Allow to cool completely and cut into (16) 2" x 2" bars. Wrap individually for a quick snack. Eat within 1 week.

The box has literally changed the way we eat. And we love being able to add on anything from Beanies to our box - it makes shopping locally so easy!
