Coconut Energy Bars

These are great power packed raw energy bars.  Truly nutritious and wholesome, not empty calories and processed sugar. If you're taking the time to care for your body by working out or participating in sports, then it will be worth your while to take 5 minutes to whip these up and be confident in the knowledge that what you're putting in your body really is the best fuel you can give yourself.

4 ½ cups organic unsweetened dried coconut flakes (or 3 cups coconut butter)
½ cup raw sunflower seeds
¼ cup organic dried figs (stems removed), chopped
1/3 cup agave syrup
¼ cup hemp seeds
¼ cup raw pumpkin seeds
pinch of sea salt

If using the flakes, you’ll need a high-powered blender to process into a buttery texture.  Then transfer the coconut to a bowl using a spatula.

Combine all ingredients in a bowl and mix with a spatula until thoroughly combined. Pour the mixture into a bread loaf pan lined with parchment paper and refrigerate until hardened. Cut into thin bars or 2 inch squares.  Store in refrigerator.
