Method

  1. Line a baking tin with greaseproof paper.

  2. In a small saucepan, gently melt the coconut cream over a low heat.

  3. Place the vanilla protein powder in a large bowl, pour in the melted coconut cream and whisk until smooth. Add the tahini and mix again.

  4. Stir in the rolled oats, cinnamon and salt and mix until well combined. If the mixture is too stiff for a wooden spoon, use your hands to form a crumbly consistency.

  5. Pour the mixture into the baking tray, flatten the mix and press down firmly.

  6. Scatter the almonds and cacao nibs over the top, making sure to press them in firmly so they do not fall off when you slice into bars.

  7. Place in the fridge for at least four hours to set. Cut into roughly 12 bars.
