Nut Butter Power Bars

To add to my collection of “clean” power bars, I tried two variations of this Wellmark recipe last week.  Both turned out yummy according to my tough critics, J and Trey, so thought I’d share!

Nut Butter Power Bars
Ingredients:
2 C quick oats or old fashioned
1 C natural peanut butter, almond butter or other variety
1 C honey
1 C dried fruit (cranberries, blueberries, raisins, apricots, etc)
1 C ground flaxseed
1 scoop vanilla whey protein powder (I used NNW Healthy Whey)
Instructions:
Mix all ingredients together and stir until blended  Spread mixture into a 13x10inch pan and refrigerate until ready to serve.  Store in fridge for 1 to 2 weeks or freeze for later use.  I like to cut and wrap into individual portion sizes for a quick on-the-go or pre/post workout snack.  If you cut into 32 bars each serving is about 170 calories.  Keep in mind the dried fruit and nut butter will make a higher calorie snack, especially if your bars are larger. 

Have a teenager at home who “doesn’t have time for breakfast.”  Throw one of these at them as they head out the door!  A sure hit! 

Until next time…
look good, feel good, do good

    Looks easy and yummy! I am curious what are your thoughts on agave and if it could be used in place of honey here. I am more apt to have it on hand.

    Thanks!
