…High Fibre, High Protein, NO Sugar, NO Fat!!!

Almond Cherry Chocolate Chip Bar, an easy recipe for fat free and sugar free bars. Great for breakfast or as a snack. High Protein!!! SO Good.

With Halloween behind us it’s time to get back on track, at least until Christmas. Can you believe it’s only seven weeks away.

These bars are the bomb. No refined sugar and no added fat whatsoever, just a tiny bit from the sunflower seeds. The chocolate I’ve used is sugar free which you can get at any health store or good supermarket.

Basically super healthy and trust me, you really can’t tell they’re sugar free and fat free, they taste as if they are very naughty. So it’s a win win.

Method;

Preheat oven to 400° F/ 200° C

prepare your baking dish by spraying it with oil, then lining it with parchment paper.

In a large bowl combine all the ingredients in the order stated above. Mix well but carefully. Press firmly into the prepared baking dish with the back of a spoon. I find that metal spoons stick less than wooden spoons.

Bake for 25 minutes. Remove from oven and let cool completely before decorating.

To decorate, chop the chocolate fine and put in a glass bowl. Microwave until melted at 20 second intervals. When melted spoon over the bars with a zigzag motion. Grate pistachios over the bars with a fine mandolin.
