These bars are so delicious, they may not look like an oil painting but let me assure you that they are beautiful on the inside. Each bar is basically a bomb of anti-oxidants, omega 3 and 6s, vitamin b, anti  inflammatorys, iron, magnesium, fibre, energy, good fats, good juju, virtually all the good stuff for your bod. Your doctor will high five you for eating this. In fact, you should email Discovery Health and tell them you ate these, they will probable bump you up to diamond status immediately.ingredients

The recipe is super simple, in a nutshell, put all the below ingredients into a blender (save about 1/3 cup nuts, they will go in at the end) Blend together until everything starts to stick together. If your mixture is a little dry, you are welcome to add another tablespoon of coconut oil, chuck in some honey, what ever you are favouring at the time. Pour your blended mixture into a bowl, add the left over Macadamia nuts abd mush everything together until you have a well incorporated mass.    Push your sporty mush into a baking tray lined with paper. You are welcome to use what ever size container you like, I personally like my bars to be about 2cm thick so I spread the mixture into a big, shallow baking tin and use my rolling pin to flatten it all out neatly. Refrigerate your Sports Bars for about a hour or until they are nice and firm. Remove your bar from the fridge, turn it out onto a dry work surface and cut into 4cm x 6cm bars. (I find this size to be just right- it is about 2 bites ) Wrap your sports bar in a piece of baking paper and pop each bar individually into a small zip lock bag (this is the easiest way to transport them on any adventure you wish to let them take you on). These bars will keep in an airtight container, refrigerated, for about 2 weeks. Please note that these ingredients are not set in stone. You can jazz it up with cinnamon and vanilla, change the type of nut, use sultanas instead of raising, chuck in some cranberries, just chuck in what every you have in your pantry cupboard that sounds delicious to you!
