Easy Lemon Bar Dessert

gut health recipes Jun 16, 2021

Oops! You received an email from me earlier this week welcoming you to my Gut Revival program. This was an accident. I was trying to multitask at 6:35am and my brain wasn’t working yet!

So I thought I would send you one of my favorite gut friendly protein bar recipes from the Gut Revival Recipe book. This recipe is perfect for summer as it contains the aromatic zesty punch of lemon and may help to relieve you from the burger & beer belly bloat.

Lemon is a potent antioxidant which helps to reduce gut inflammation and boost the immune system. Lemon is also a natural antimicrobial which helps to balance gut bacteria reducing the chances of wearing spanx under your swimsuit.  

Lemon Sesame Cacao Bars

Makes about 10 bars

1 cup sunflower seeds

1 scoop vanilla protein powder

½ cup raw cacao nibs

3 tablespoons sunbutter

1 tablespoon melted coconut oil

1 cup sesame seeds

1 tablespoon lemon zest

8 pitted Medjool dates (soak for about 30 min if hard)

⅓ cup shredded coconut (for coating)

Add sunflower seed, protein powder, cacao, sunbutter, coconut oil, sesame seeds, and lemon zest to a large bowl. Blend the dates in a high-speed blender or food processor until it turns into a paste. Then add the date paste to the bowl with the remaining ingredients. Mix well using clean, dry hands.

Line a 4x6 tray with wax paper. Add ingredients to the tray, press flat and slice into 10 rectangles. Top with shredded coconut. Freeze for 30 minutes.
