Savory Vegan Granola Bar with Spelt Flakes


There are tons of snack bar recipes but we wanted to create a rather savoury bar for snacks because not all snacks need to be sweet! 

Having said that, this savoury bar does include coconut nectar which is a low Glycemic Syrup from the sap of the coconut flower. For the nuts and seeds, please feel free to swap with your favourite bites.

You might be asking why Nori sheet is in the recipe. However, nori can boost the umami so don't skip this one!

If you are going to pack some bars for your school snakes and your school has a nut-free policy, you can swap the walnuts with sunflower seeds, and the almond butter with tahini (sesame butter) to make it a nut-free snack bar.

One important thing is to use sprouted nuts and seeds for better digestion. It is a small thing that makes a huge impact on our bodies.

What is sprouting? 
All nuts, seeds, legumes and grains have a naturally occurring chemical known as phytic acid and some enzyme inhibitors which can interfere with body's absorption of certain nutrients. These enzyme inhibitors and phytic acid are absent in our activated Brazil nuts since they were removed through our soaking process.

If you haven't tasted sprouted nuts and seeds yet, please do try as they are totally different from just raw nuts!

In this recipe we have used spelt flakes for a hearty texture but if you want to make a glute-free bar, you can swap this with oats

When it comes to options, the sky is the limit! Please use this as a base to create your favorite savory snack bar!
