IngredientsPrimal Energy Bar 2

  • 1⁄2 cup slivered almonds
  • 1⁄2 cup pecans
  • 1⁄2 cup unsweetened dried shredded coconut (1/4 cup to mix in and 1/4 cup to sprinkle on top)
  • 1⁄4 cup almond butter
  • 1⁄4 cup coconut oil
  • 1⁄4 cup almond meal (blended almonds)
  • 1 1⁄4 teaspoons vanilla extract
  • 1⁄2 teaspoon honey
  • 1⁄2 teaspoon sea salt
  • 1⁄2 cup dried cranberries (or blueberries)


  1. On a cookie sheet, toast nuts and shredded coconut until golden brown. In order for them to cook evenly, you need to shake up the tray at least once during cooking…don’t skip this step!
  2. Once toasted, pour mixture into a food processor and pulse until nuts are chopped and the mixture becomes coarsely ground.
  3. In a mixing bowl, melt coconut oil and almond butter (about 30 seconds). Remove from microwave and stir until smooth.
  4. Add vanilla extract, honey and sea salt. Mix thoroughly.
  5. Fold in nut mixture, almond meal and protein powder until mixed thoroughly.
  6. Add whole egg and mix thoroughly.
  7. Fold in blueberries/cranberries.
  8. Press mixture into an 8 by 8 loaf pan (this helps keep everything crisper and helps the bars to hold together).
  9. Cook in a preheated oven at 325⁰ for 10 minutes.
  10. Remove from oven, sprinkle a ¼ cup of shredded coconut on top and place under broiler until top begins to brown.
  11. Let cool for 10-15 minutes. Cut into 12 pieces/bars.

Enjoy or stack on wax paper/parchment and store in an airtight container.
