If the ingredients list on your protein bars could serve as evening reading material, you might want to consider making your own.
Instead of taking a day off to Google every ingredient, spend 20 minutes grinding up the homemade version! You can use the everyday, tasty foods you already have on hand anyway.
Tip: try experimenting with different nuts, seeds, dried fruit and other add-ins. (Dark chocolate might be a yummy addition!)
1. Combine all ingredients together in a food processor. Blend to desired consistency. If you find the mixture too thick – try adding a Tbsp of water and blend again. If it’s too thin – add some more seeds or nuts of your choice.
2. Spread out in a pan to the thickness of your choice. Run a knife through them to shape the bars.
3. Sprinkle with sesame seeds and coconut flakes if you like. Put in the fridge and allow bars to harden.
4. Transfer bars from cookie sheet and wrap them individually (in cellophane for example). Store bars in fridge or freezer.
