These are very healthy. When I make them I usually eat a large square for breakfast, and then eat a few squares every few hours as snacks. They actually taste like dessert, but they're healthy enough to eat for a meal. This is a revised recipe that I got from the back of Seven in the Morning cereal.
This is a recipe I came up with myself after getting sick of on the run meals and I wanted to make something that would keep well during the day and energize me--while also giving me the fiber, veggies, and nutrition I need. A bar for quick snack to tide you over or even a few "bars" for a meal replacement.
Obviously I like being healthy, so if you like the bread bar sweeter then use 3/4 cup of both brown and white sugar. This is good served warm with a slice of fat free cream cheese, cottage cheese, or even honey.
These are my favorite go to snack "cake". Each serving fits perfectly in a snack size ziploc, and these freeze beautifully. I put one frozen in my lunch, and when I'm ready for it in the afternoon, it is thawed. Diabetic Exchanges per serving are: 1 Fruit, 1/2 Starch and 1/2 Fat. I am posting the recipe as written, but I always use Splenda. See note at the end of the recipe. Recipe is courtesy of Joanna Lund.
These are moist brownie like bars with just the right amount of chocolate and peanuts. This recipe was originally high fat, but I successfully substitute applesauce for most of the margarine. Excellent served warm, although still very good cool.
Made this up to give my toddler a healthy and yummy snack--and to use up some of the millions of Cheerios we seem to always have in the pantry! Great to take to play groups, no eggs or honey so even young babies can share. Substitute any cereal you want!
