From Liv(e)LoveLaugh, a fantastic new find of a blog to me!
These bars are delicious as a snack or for breakfast~ I have made them chocolaltey too, which is even more tasty =) My mom found the recipe on a blog that she likes and printed it off for me- I’m not sure what the blog was, but if you know please tell me to I can credit the recipe!
On-the-Go Protein Bars
1/4c Ground Flax Seed
1/2c Dried Fruit (Rasins and or Prunes are good)
1/2c Unsweetened Shredded Coconut
1/2c Natural Peanut Butter
1/2 Tsp Sea Salt
1/2c Melted Extra Virgin Coconut Oil
1 TB Maple Syrup or Honey
2-3 Tsp Vanilla Extract
Place almonds, flax, fruit, coconut, peanut butter and salt in a food processor. Blend until it is a coarse- however chunky you would like it. Melt coconut oil on the stove, then stir sweetener and vanilla in. Pour into the nut mix and stir well. (Add coco powder if you like, about a 1/3c.) Press into an 8×8 pan and refrigerate for ~1 hour. (Spread melted chocolate on top if you want and refrigerate until hardened.)
After they are hardened cut them into squares and wrap individually with plastic wrap. Freeze or refrigerate.
