The need for energy intake during prolonged activities is greatly reduced while being on Low Carb nutrition due to greater reliance on fat for fuel. The bulk of the caloric value comes from ground nuts (macadamia nuts, Brazil nuts, walnuts and hazelnuts), coconut flour and coconut butter, while 2 eggs, a bit of starch and whey protein powder are added as binding substances that enhance the binding properties of chia.
As you can see, one Low Carb energy bar has just shy of 300 kCal with only 11 g of Carbs, while 74% of energy comes from fat!

It was on 23rd November 2012 when I first heard of Low Carb High Fat (LCHF) diet, when Klemen sent me one of the articles by prof. DIY Protein Bars: Easy, Healthy, Homemade No-Bake Treats That Taste Like Dessert, But Just Happen To Be Packed With Protein is a collection of 48 ahhhmazing protein bar recipes! Cinnamon and ground cocoa beans are added as flavor, while raisins contribute to that extra carbohydrate mental boost spark. It may be due to lower ambitions, because of financial constraints, lack of good coaches or something similar. I had strong doubts as to the effectiveness of such a diet, but I ate main meals with him out of solidarity and added my own carb rich side dishes (usually pasta or polenta).


After few iterations, I came to the following recipe for energy bars that are highly nutritious, have quite a lot of energy and do not melt in your back pocket. At that time, my meals consisted mainly of oatmeal, pasta, polenta, fruits, low fat dairy products and occasionally some fish.
