Well now that my pitty party has ended I will get on with the recipe. It is pretty simple, requires NO COOKING and is a great healthy snack , clocking in at 128cal, 17carb, and 10g protein (assuming you cut them similar to mine LOL). These are also a savior when you have a killer sweet tooth and can not see wasting calories on ice cream, cake, so on....
This recipe has quite a few ingredients but it is pretty much dump and mix so don't feel intimidated.
Yes it looks like a lot...
1.5 c oats
1/2 c Shredded coconut
1/4c raisins 1/4 c crasins ( or any dried fruit you wish)
32 chocolate chips (that was 2 servings of the chips I had and yes I counted lol)
1/4 c pecans ( you can sub. walnuts)
2c Protein powder
2T Flax seed (ground)
1.5 tsp cinnamon
1/4 c sunflower seeds
2 ripe bananas
1/4c pure maple syrup (not flavored... thats just sugar)
1/2c Peanut butter
1tsp Vanilla Extract
Combine all the dry ingredients into a large bowl
In a small bowl mash the bananas, add all the wet ingredients and mix
dump wet ingredients into dry and mix well...
You may have to use your hands :o)
Spread into a lined baking dish (plastic wrap or wax paper) and place in the freezer for about an hour or until set
Side note: While I waited for them to chill I finally talked my lazy butt off the couch and did a simple work out.
A quick 1.5mile/2 mile run
followed by 2 sets of push ups
-each set= 20 reps, 1 leg switch legs on second rep
2 sets of close grip pull ups
- 5 each set... Ya i was tired lol
Cut into squares once they are set. I cut mine into 18 squares using a 11x7x1.5 baking dish
Individually wrap the bars, place in a freezer safe container and keep them in there until you need a quick snack or to satisfy the late night sweet tooth attack.
Hpe you enjoy!
Have a great night and remember... giving into your sweet tooth doesn't mean you have to wreck your entire day
