    HOW DO I dry my energy bars?

    Shop Now
    So today I tried making an energy bar and I put

    Coconut shreds
    Coconut oil
    Apple butter
    Chocolate hemp protein
    Goji berries

    Would I have to bake it for it to become drier and harden up?

    I want to be able to eat it with my hands, not with a spoon.

    You dry them with more carbs.

    He's most likely right. Some dust mixed in there should help it harden up. I don't even know what to recommend, I've never tried to make this. But it sounds like fun! What about making your own rice crispies to mix in?
    Steak, eggs, potatoes - fruits, nuts, berries and forage. Coconut milk and potent herbs and spices. Tea instead of coffee now and teeny amounts of kelp daily. Let's see how this does! Not really had dairy much, and gut seems better for it.

    Hmm I did think of putting some oat flour there to soak up the oil. But I think that the water from the apple butter needs to evaporate. I guess baking is the only way? Didn't want to bake the hemp protein though.

    With those ingredients, I would thinking baking would only melt them, but I could be wrong. Have you tried putting them in the fridge?

    You could try baking at low temps on parchment paper or in lined muffin tins to evaporate some moisture, and then let harden in fridge? Might work to semi-freeze without baking as well, depending on oil/applesauce ratios-

    ok I know its not exactly like jerky but some people use a fans and a filter. Depending on how wet it is, maybe a perforated pan or maybe just in the oven on low?

    very interested in this project of yours and how it turns out.
