Please post your favorite NK energy bar recipe.

I did a search in the forum and could not find anything in NK about energy bars that are NK friendly. As a follow up to my previous thread, I think energy bars would be an ideal on the go snack if we are unable to find/cook anything else NK friendly. Ofcourse most of you wont have this trouble, but then there are a few who are simply going to struggle as they did not plan ahead... like me.

I couldn't really find a recipe that is NK friendly and was wondering if the more culinary-inclined among you could help us out. I just put together a list of ingredients that I know I can find at short notice no matter where I am at and am hoping that we could all put on our thinking caps and make a high fat, low protein, negligible carb energy bar that can be baked (preferably) and stored in fridge till usage.

Ingredients:
Flax seed
Peanuts
Eggs (or egg whites)
Butter
Salt
Sweetner

Additional ingredients:
Cocoa powder
Vanilla essence
unflavoured gelatin OR Xanthum gum
desiccated coconut flour
coconut oil

Thanks Lowcarbella!
The recipe themselves sound so delicious I am gonna try them soon. I'll skip the bacon bar, cause a pack of (the most natural) bacon I could find cost almost 22Dhs(6$) for 200g!!! All pork items are imported here, so even though we did buy a pack and DH loved it. I just decided to skip it altogether cause its not practical in the long run.

The Buttery Almond Bars [thanks Cathy], Toasted Coconut flax bar and Chocolate sesame fudge bars I'm going to try and I think they can also be an occasional treat too.

I don't have a recipe, but I would tell people to stay away from peanuts until they know how they affect them. They cause cravings for me, so I would stay away from them. But I'm loving a couple of the posts and they would be great snacks or a light meal.
