Gather round, still your hearts and listen close. The rumor is true. You CAN have ice cream for breakfast (…the crowd roars).
I miss Game of Thrones… anyway.
I wanted to create a fun, healthy and delicious breakfast option to shake things up. In came these fantastic Ice Cream Breakfast Bars.
These Ice Cream Breakfast Bars contain some powerful superfoods, they are super filling and pack some wonderful clean energy.
Here are some simple reasons why I love the ingredients used to create this fantastic recipe:
Oats: Oats contain B vitamins, fiber, magnesium, manganese and silica. This to me is a great combination for healing, your skin and have a calming effect.
Coconut Oil: Coconut oil is one of my favorite healthy fats. When buying coconut oil be sure you are buy Virgin, Cold Pressed, Organic for the highest quality. As most of you know I use coconut oil also on my body and in my hair (Check out my Body Butter here).
Dates: Dates are a wonderful source of energy, are high in fiber and contain B vitamins.
Cinnamon: Cinnamon is anti-inflammatory and anti-microbial (hello the added bonus of fresh breath!).
Chia Seeds: Chia seeds are an excellent source of omega 3 and 6. They are also fantastic for making you feel full longer. They can be great as an intestinal cleanser. Just make sure to drink lots of water.
Strawberries (Berries or fruit): Strawberries are packed with vitamin C and anti-oxidant flavonoids.
This recipe is vegan, gluten free, no bake, dairy free, high fiber, nutrient dense and unbelievably good.
2 Cups Prepared Strawberries (Raspberries, Peaches or Blueberries)
1/4 Cup Chia Seeds
Juice of 1 Lemon or Orange (Freshly Squeezed)
2 Tbsp Coconut Oil
1 tsp Vanilla Extract
15 Drops Liquid Stevia (or 3 Tbsp Coconut Sap, Agave or Maple Syrup)
1 1/2 Cups Soft Fresh Medjool Dates (Pitted)
2 Cups Uncontaminated Organic Rolled Oats
2 Tbsp Coconut Oil
1 1/2 tsp Cinnamon
1/3 Cup Walnuts (Almonds, Pecans, etc)
3 Tbsp Warm Water
1/2 tsp Vanilla Extract
Place all Strawberry Jam ingredients into the food processor aside from chia seeds and blend until smooth.
Place blended jam into a bowl and stir chia seeds in evenly.
Place all granola ingredients into the food processor and pulse until mixed and dough-like while still appearing rough like granola.
Line a large glass baking dish with saran wrap with enough excess on either side to cover (fold over) the entire recipe.
Place prepared granola in to the baking dish and press down evenly as thin as you would like the recipe to be (I used a 11x9 baking dish but didn't spread my dough out the entire way. There was still about 3 inches on the end I didn't use to achieve my desired thickness of dough).
Layer your strawberry jam evenly on top.
Cover and place in the freezer for 1 hour.
Remove from freezer and using saran wrap fold recipe in half (this is to achieve the double layer as shown in the photos). You can skip this step to make this recipe easy and to enjoy these single layered.
Cover folded recipe and place back in the freezer for 3-4 hours.
Remove from freezer, cut into bars and enjoy.
Store in a sealed tight container in the freezer and enjoy directly from the freezer.
