When I was approached by Australian Organic to be involved in promoting Australian Organic Awareness month, I got very excited! The products used in this recipe and review were sent to me as part of a hamper to enjoy during Australian Organic Awareness Month, so this post is sponsored, but as always, all the views contained in here are my own- no-one can buy my opinion! Now, in exchange for the hamper of awesomeness as it will henceforth be know, I made a recipe.
Everything used in this recipe is Australian Certified Organic, which means not only are you buying awesome organic ingredients, but you are supporting local industry and farmers. Now. I’m not normally one to promote organic, am I? The reason behind that is that I believe that we need to start from the ground up, and be using wholefoods to make homemade meals. But, having said that, I do use a lot of organic ingredients in my cooking. The last thing I want however is telling my readers that they must eat organic and therefore alienating you. Instead, choose wisely, because there are ways to have some of the convenient foods you love, like cereals and pancake mixes for example without compromising on the quality and on the ingredients used, by looking for the Australian Organic logo. Don’t forget to read to the bottom to see how to win a fabulous organic hamper from Australian Organic!
Anyway, onto the recipe. Using 4 ingredients I made dairy free granola bars that not only stuck together, but tasted amazing. Like many of the 4 ingredients recipes that you will find floating around on the web, this uses one processed food that means you are really using lots more ingredients than four, but you get what I mean!
- 150 grams certified organic spiral coconut butter
- ½ cup certified organic raw honey
- ½ cup certified organic shredded coconut
- 2 cups certified organic 5am apple crumble granola
- Preheat oven to 160 degrees.
- Melt the coconut butter with the honey in a saucepan over medium heat.
- Bring to the boil, add to the shredded coconut and the granola.
- Mix together well and press into a 20cm square lined cake pan.
- Bake at 160 degrees for 20 minutes.
- Allow to cool completely in the pan.
- Cut into bars when completely cool.
It would be very unfair of me to enjoy all of these yummy goodies without sharing with you, so thanks to Australian Organic I have a hamper (valued at over $200) to give away to one lucky winner.
I’ve been working my way through these products and I’m so impressed.
