besi bars

As almonds are a valuable imported product to our kitchen, I like to create new ways to use the pulp left over from our “power day smoothies.” This weeks experiment is a sweet number I have coined Besi Bars. Besi means iron in Bahasa Indonesia, a fitting title for these power packed morsels. Tom reckons they taste like old fashioned gingernut bikkies gone soft.


2 cups almond meal (left over from making almond milk)

1 cup oat flour (we only have rolled oats, which are not raw, if possible use steel cut oat groats)
1/2 cup dried goji berries, soaked
1/4 cup agave nectar or honey

1 teaspoon cinnamon

½ teaspoon ground ginger

2 tablespoon raw cacao powder

1. Combine all ingredients.

2. Spread mixture evenly onto non-stick sheet. Dehydrate at 40ºC until firm (8 - 12 hrs). Flip over and cut into bars about 6 hours into the dehydrating time.

Alternatively, if you don’t want to dehydrate or can’t wait that long, roll mixture into balls, refrigerate and eat as Besi Balls.
