Quick, High Protein, Delicious AND School friendly bars

Snacks is commonly reported to be the time when most of us grab anything we have handy. And usually an apple, banana, nuts or a whole grain toast come after other not so healthy options.

Based on a recipe that contained much more “adult “ ingredients (i.e. coffee beans) and no school friendly ingredients (i.e. roasted nuts) I came up with this recipe that beats all that and is delicious.

This is what you need:

Ingredients:

The dry:

  • Cut steel oats, 1 1/3 cups
  • Crispy rice cereal, 1 cup
  • Chocolate chips, 1/4 cup
  • Shredded coconut, 1/4 cup

The wet:

  • Coconut oil, 2 tbps
  • Sunflower butter, 1/4
  • Brown rice syrup (or honey, or Maple syrup), 1/4 cup

The recipe:

1- In one bowl add the dry ingredients and mix gently, set aside.   (I used Crispy cereal Xmas version, thats why the added color)

2- In a deep pan add the oil, butter and maple or rice syrup and put on medium heat until it starts simmering. Remove from heat and add a few vanilla (from beans or extract).

 

3- Add the warm liquid to the dry ingredients and using a wood spoon mix well. Chocolate chips will melt.

 

4- Spread the mixture on the flat plate (you can use parchment paper here) and freeze for about 20 mins.

 

5- Cut them in the desired sizes and enjoy them!! 

To keep them fresh wrap them individually and place them in an air tight container in the fridge for 4-5 days
