Play around with this recipe. My hubby couldn't get enough of them - I thought they were a tad dry so I'd add a little more nut butter or oil next time!.
Homemade Power Bars (not low carb)
Makes 12 Bars
1 cup organic (GF) rolled oats
½ cup pumpkins seeds
¼ cup unsalted (raw) sunflower seeds
¼ cup of hempseeds
½ cup chopped almonds
¼ cup ground flax
2 scoops protein powder (vanilla grass-fed, organic whey protein works well)
1 teaspoon cinnamon
½ teaspoon sea salt
3 tablespoons organic grass-fed butter (melted) or organic extra virgin oil
¼ cup honey or maple syrup
½ cup peanut butter or almond butter
Preheat oven to 325. Line a 7 x 11 pan* with parchment paper or lightly coat with cooking oil spray.
This recipe is super easy to make in a food processor. Pulse all the dry ingredients together then add liquids, nut butter, and lastly pulse or stir in dates. Transfer and press into prepared pan.
Bake for about 25 minutes. Remove from oven and allow to cool. Then refrigerate for at least 2 hours. Cut into 12 bars and store in glass storage with lid or wrap separately in wax paper and store refrigerated.
*You can use other sized pans depending on thickness of bar desired.
