After undergoing gastric bypass surgery, the need existed for increasing protein in my diet. This is what I cam up with for breakfast. The amount of protein depends upon the protein powder you use. AFter trial and expensive error, the protein powder I found I liked best is Unjury brand, available at www.unjury.com
An untried raw food vegan recipe that was recommended on a vegan newsgroup I lurk on.
Aug 2004: Finally got around to making these myself. They are pretty sticky so I rolled them in coconut just like truffles. Big hit with the 3 year old and me. Would be worth putting in the fridge or freezer to firm them up.
Start your day with this "power breakfast." Not only is it loaded with antioxidants (beta carotene, vitamin C, etc.),it is also packed with active enzymes that aid in digestion. Thanks to emazing for this !
I made these for my fiance because we can't afford to buy him all the "nutritional energy bars" he needs to sustain him through all his cycling endeavors. He loves them, says they are much better than storebought, and I've eaten a couple and I can vouch for their taste: it is excellent!
Why pay almost $3 or $4 for an overpriced box of trail mix-style bars when you can make your own easily? A 6 ounce bag of puffed brown rice cereal goes for 80 cents at our local supermarket, and 6 ounces is a lot of puffed rice! You can use natural, low-sugar or low-fat peanut butters, use raisins instead of dried cherries or substitute chocolate or carob chips for the coconut (or include everything you can!). In addition to the sunflower seeds, I like to add sesame seeds for extra crunch as well.
