As mentioned on the Recipes - Shakes page , I am not a professional nutrionist or a baker. I simply like, as million others , baking or cooking.
I do like cereal bars, Who doesn't? So I thought, bake some and use one of our Protein Powder. I chose the "Cheeky Choclate Vegan Protein Pancake Mix"
You will not need any extra sugar.
Below you can see the ingredients I used.
Put all mixed ingredients to a batter. The battter will thicken up. Put everything in a greased tin and gently press the down and spread out the batter in the tin. Then bake for 15 minutes at 180°C .
When everything is baked , let everything cool down. Gently tip out the cereal dough on a board and cut them in slices or pieces.

We all know nuts are very good for you and can give you energy and also can help to loose weight.
Walnuts are rich in antioxidants, decrease inflammation, promotes a healthy gut and may manage type diabetes 2 and may lower the risk of diabetes. Walnuts may also also help to lower the blood pressure.
Cashew nuts are rich in fibre, low in sugar, have healthy fats and are vegan, plant based.
Chop the walnuts and cashew nuts and blend them to make a kind of flour. Add all ingredients to a bowl and stir with a fork. Form some small balls from the dough using your hands and roll them in the coconut.
Put the small balls on a baking tray or put in a silicone mould (that is what I used). Bake the balls for 20mins - 180°C. Test them with a wooden stick or cake stick if nothing sticks on that cake stick. If not, you know they are proper cooked.
Let them cool down on a cooling rack. When they cooled down, you can eat them right away. Enjoy. Recipe by Ivonne Meisel, VivaMK Health Ambassador.
If you use the oven, you may need to pre-heat the oven. I have used the Cake Factory by Tefal.
*Allergy: if you are allergic to walnuts or cashew nuts please speak to your GP first.

The mixture should be getting firm and a bit sticky. If it is too sticky, wet add some extra oats so the dough get firm.
Transfer then the dough into your baking tin and push the dough slightly down. Make sure it is in nice and even and spreaded out in the whole baking tin.
Cook for 25mins at 180°C. Once the bars has been cooked, take them out of the oven and let them cool down on a cooling rack. When they cooled down, take the dough out of the tin and cut them in slices, in the size you wish to have them. Enjoy.
