When on the go or traveling, trying to find a healthy snack or meal can be quite a challenge.
I am personally an ingredients Nazi. I don’t like numbers, food additives, or anything remotely altered or unnatural to appear on any label of any food or product I choose to eat.
When working at trade shows and events our days can be very long and require lots of energy. Sometimes we don’t have a break to eat until the late evening, Sometimes we just can’t find a decent meal or snack throughout the day – one with some good wholefood and raw food ingredients. That’s when I said to my husband, “Let’s do our own raw food bars!”. I thought we could include our beautiful Coconut Magic coconut oil to make them super healthy and other raw superfood ingredients to make them super nutritious.
As the idea emerged I was also reading the book ‘Thrive’ by Brendan Brazier. Brendan is a world champion vegan athlete. He talks about the body’s requirements for nutrition and energy from a professional athlete’s point of view. He says that dates, nuts and coconut are a great combination as a source of fuel for the body. These ingredients are also an effective recovery food for when your body is in-between exercise and burning energy.
It was this research, around simple and effective wholefood ingredients, that formed the basis of our raw ‘energy’ bars.
Each bar contains our premium Coconut Magic Organic Coconut Oil. Coconut oil is a pure source of fuel for the body. Coconut oil is unique in that the liver converts this medium chain fatty acid directly into energy, and it will not store as fat in the body. With good fats like this, you don’t have to worry about calorie counting. Our coconut oil also keeps the bar moist, delicious and naturally stable so we don’t need to add any artificial stabilisers or preservatives. Our oil is so pure that it leaves no aftertaste at all.
Coconut Magic Raw Energy Bars are designed to taste good and to give you lasting sustained energy and absorbable nutrition from simple superfood sources. They are made with wholefoods, superfoods and coconut ingredients only. Ways to use and enjoy your Raw Energy Bars include:
- In your sports bag for a quick snack before/after a gym workout
- In your handbag as an easy snack when on the go on a busy work day
- In your kids’ school lunch boxes
- Just in your back pocket!
I hope you will enjoy and love them as much as we do!

Jenni started Coconut Magic when she returned from living in Thailand in 2011.Whilst abroad, Jenni had discovered the most amazing quality of coconut oil and experienced her own health transformation. Jenni returned with very little other than her coconut oil discovery and a desire to share it with the world. Just a few months after her return coconut oil and a whole new perception of well being started to become 'rediscovered' in the west.
