Preparing a healthy breakfast doesn’t have to occupy an entire morning. Make these tasty AIP breakfast bars on the weekend so you’ll have a handy meal to take with you on busy days.

Essential Advice

  • Don’t be impatient with your food processor. If the chunks are too coarse, the bars will fall apart.
  • Use parchment paper, not wax paper. Otherwise all of your hard work could go up in flames. Literally. Alternatively, you can use a silicone baking mat if you have one.
  • Soak the tiger nuts before chopping. Many people prefer to eat tiger nuts after they have been soaked, so keep that in mind for your leftovers.

What are Tiger Nuts?

The blogosphere is ablaze with rave reviews for tiger nuts. These tiny tubers (they’re actually not nuts) have a nice subtly sweet vanilla flavor.

These little guys are chock full of fiber. That’s good news for these breakfast bars, as they’ll help to ward off hunger pangs until lunchtime.

Tiger nuts may not be available everywhere just yet. Your best bet is to check out your local health food store. Failing that, there is ample availability on the web, so you can pick whichever vendor suits you.

AIP Breakfast Bars Recipe

Ingredients


Instructions

  1. Preheat the oven to 280°F (140°C).
  2. Soak the tiger nuts in hot water for 20 minutes. Drain well and chop.
  3. Combine the tiger nuts, dried fruit, coconut flakes, and 3 tablespoons (21g) of the coconut flour. Add the honey and combine well. Spread the mixture evenly in an oven-safe dish and press down to compact.
  4. Bake for 1 hour and remove.  Let the mixture cool then crumble in a food processor until coarse. If the pieces are too big, the mixture will fall apart – so this step is crucial!
  5. Sprinkle the gelatin over lukewarm water in a small bowl. Wait a minute or two, then add the hot water. Mix well until the gelatin is completely melted. Meanwhile, melt the coconut oil in the microwave.
  6. Add the coarse mixture and remaining coconut flour in a large bowl. Pour the gelatin and coconut oil over the mixture and mix until thoroughly combined.
  7. Line a baking dish with parchment paper and pour in the new mixture. Press down firmly.
  8. Bake in the oven for 1 hour, then remove and allow to cool before slicing into bars. Store in an airtight container.
