FitFabForver Energy Bar to Go
1 c. pecans crushed (can substitute walnuts, almonds)
1 c. quick oats
1/3 c. pumpkin seeds
1/4 c. ground flaxseeds
1/2 c. dark brown sugar
4 T. unsalted butter (can substitute with 2 T. butter + 2 T. almond butter)
1/2 t. salt
2 t. pure vanilla extract
2 c. plain puffed rice cereal
Preheat over to 335 degrees and line baking sheet with parchment paper. Spread the pecans, oats, pumpkin seeds and flaxseeds on the sheet and bake until nuts are fragrant, which is about 8 minutes. In a saucepan, bring the sugar, honey, butter and salt to a boil over moderate heat. Simmer until the sugar is dissolved and a light brown caramel forms, which is about 5 minutes. Remove form the heat and stir in the vanilla. Drizzle the caramel over the nut and oat mixture. Stir in the puffed rice and cranberries until evenly coated. Spoon the cereal mixture (will be very sticky so work quickly) into the prepared baking sheet and spread evenly. Cover the mixture with a second sheet of parchment paper and press down to smooth out. I prefer using a rolling pin to compress the mixture more evenly. Let stand until firm, which is about 2 hours. Discard the top parchment paper and transfer to a work surface. Cut into approximately 45 bars (about 1″ x 3″ bar size) and then wrap individually. I suggest putting each bar in an individual Ziploc snack bag to keep them fresh and easy for a grab and go snack. 🏃
Time: 15 minutes prep time/ total time 2:15 minutes
Servings: approximately 45 bars or cut recipe in 1/2 if you prefer fewer bars
You are now ready for : quick protein snack after your workout (link for ideas), beating the afternoon slump, having a On the Go snack while running errands or at the office, give your kids a healthy snack with confidence, eat healthy while traveling and know that your own energy bar is not loaded with unhealthy fats & sugars.
