Nutty Lucuma Bars-2These were a surprising treat. It has a great caramel flavour that can get masked pretty easily but these bars really carried the flavour. I used almond butter but I’m trying sunbutter next time I make them. I think peanut butter might be too overwhelming.

Nutty Lucuma Bars

Nutty Lucuma Bars
  • 1¼ cup nuts or seeds (I used 1 cup walnuts, ¼ cup cashews)
  • ¼ cup ground flaxseed
  • ¼ cup lucuma powder
  • ¼ cup coconut oil
  • ¼ cup nut butter
  • 2 tbsp maple syrup
  • ¼ tsp cinnamon
  • pinch of salt
  1. Blend your nuts or seeds in a food processor, spice grinder or high speed blender until they become a rough meal. Dump the ground nuts into a bowl and add the flaxseed, lucuma, cinnamon and salt.
  2. In a small pot, gently melt the coconut oil, nut butter and maple syrup. Stir the melted mixture into the nut mixture and stir well.
  3. Line a loaf pan with parchment paper. Pour the batter into the pan and spread it evenly.
  4. Refrigerate for at least an hour, then cut into bars or squares.
