AIP Breakfast Bars with Cinnamon and Raisins (Paleo)

AIP Breakfast Bars with Cinnamon and Raisins (Paleo)

AIP breakfast bars are one of my favorite things to make, mainly because they’re portable and require no baking. I tried out Nuco Cinnamon Coconut Crunch Cereal, courtesy of ShopAIP and it’s fantastic eaten with a little coconut milk or just eaten by itself as a snack. However, I feel the need to turn everything into a snack bar, so here we are!

Ingredients in These AIP Breakfast Bars

  • Coconut Oil - You’ll need to melt this before measuring. If you must substitute something, use a saturated oil (something that’s firm at room temp. This is part of what holds the bars together once they cool. 
  • Water  
  • Honey-Maple syrup would be fine too.
  • Raisins

How to Make These AIP Breakfast Bars

  1. Cut a piece of parchment paper to fit a small loaf pan (roughly 9 x 5 inches). If you don't have parchment paper, grease the pan with coconut oil.
  2. Combine the cereal, gelatin powder, sea salt, and cinnamon in a food processor. Blend into fine particles.
  3. Pour the mixture into a medium bowl. Add the oil, water, and honey. Stir the ingredients together with a spoon or fork until well combined.
  4. Fold in the raisins.
  5. Pour the mixture into the loaf pan (it will be crumbly- this is normal). Press the mixture down firmly into the pan forming an even layer using your hands. This can be a little easier using gloves or parchment paper. Or you can just use the back of a spatula.
  6. Allow it to sit for at least an hour. Cut into 8 squares.

NOTES

  • If you don't have a food processor, a blender may work.
  • When you cut the bars, the edges will crumble a little bit but the bars hold together well otherwise.
  • Keeping them in the fridge gives them a firmer texture- they're very good this way but it's just a personal preference.
