A cheap and healthy way to make your own protein bars.

Ingredients Nutrition

Directions

  1. Preheat oven to 325 degrees Fahrenheit.
  2. Mix all the dry ingredients (except for the raisins and almonds) in a large bowl. Mix all the wet ingredients together in a separate bowl.
  3. Add the wet ingredients to the dry ingredients and mix well. Consistency is sort of like cookie dough. Add the raisins and almonds, and mix well.
  4. Spread into a 9X12 baking dish.
  5. Bake for roughly 20 minutes, until edges are crisp and browned.

My modifications:

* Honey instead of maple syrup.
* 1 cup of So Delicious Coconut Yogurt instead of milk and powdered milk.
* Hemp protein powder.
* 2 Tbsp cinnamon.
* 1 egg yolk.
* 1 packet Stevia

My result: a very chewy, very moist bar with only a nutty hint of the hemp protein powder (I was worried it would make the bar bitter, but it didn't). Perfect sweetness. The yogurt added just a slight tang that I really enjoy.

My only complaint is the lack of fat -- I need more fat for satiety and long-term energy (otherwise I overeat carbs and think about food all day). I'm going to make these again but with 3 whole eggs and perhaps also more fruit (e.g. dates and dried apricots).
