This recipe was inspired by the Super Energy Bars made by the coffee roastery down the street - they're my absolute favorite for a work-day pick me up! This is the 2nd version... it's a recipe in progress. The original used oatmeal instead of flour and no applesauce - it was tasty, but more like granola than bars. I'll keep adjusting and updating the recipe!
this recipe went over really well with all the girls that i work with at the office. they have nicked named me "megan the vegan" because everything i make and bring to them is, well, vegan lol. i doubled the recipe so it made 24 muffins and they were all gone by lunch time.
These no bake, high-protein, high-fiber bars are based upon Melissa Diane Smith’s recipe for Amaretto Protein Bars in her book Going Against the Grain and are a cinch to make.
The chocolate topping makes them seem a bit decadent (skip it if you must, they’ll still come out fine) – though dark chocolate, rich in anti-oxidants has now entered the echelon of power foods so I’ll keep it on mine.

These brownies are a total superfood - low calorie, nonfat, high protein, and high fiber. They're acceptable for South Beach Phase 1, and if you're on Weight Watchers, they're 1/2 a point each!! They also taste pretty damn good!! They're probably awesome frosted or ala mode. Here's the nutritional info (abridged) and recipe:
Nutritional info per serving:

Tasty and healthful. They're very moist and will change your opinion about spelt! I often change the fruit I add to this recipe, depending upon what I have. Shredded carrot and raisin is a great combo, or crystalized ginger and pear, or apple walnut, etc. Recipe works well without the banana, too.
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.
Tasty snack from Cooking Light that provides a concentrated source of carbohydrates from the raisins, along with protein and "good" fats from the nuts. Feel free to substitute nuts and fruit according to your preference, or what you have on hand. I don't care for raisins, so I used craisins (dried cranberries) ; I found I was out of slivered almonds, so I substituted some chopped macadamias. I especially loved the addition of cardamom--added an unexpected element.
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.
Muffins designed to trick children into eating some fruit and vegetables. Children think they are having a delicious, moist chocolate treat. In fact they are eating low fat muffins containing apples and beetroot. And when do you confess your deception? Perhaps at their twenty-first birthday party? Or when they leave home, when you give them the recipe? Or if there are other younger children still being deceived, perhaps this is best shared privately. Like the truth about Father Christmas, the Easter Bunny and the Tooth Fairy. Adapted from a recipe on the Simply Great Meals Recipe Club website.
