I started off planning to make muffins but went in a completely different direction. These bars are loaded with healthy fats, B vitamins, fiber, protein, phytonutrients, iron, manganese, omegas… the list keeps going and going. They’re absolutely delicious with a tall, cold glass of almond milk. Great for an after workout snack or breakfast on the go.
|¼ cup||raw honey – if you want your bars to be solid at room temp (I love to eat mine frozen) cut the honey to 2 Tbsp|
|3 Tbsp||nut butter (almond, peanut, etc)|
|½ cup||blackstrap molasses|
|1 ½ tsp||cinnamon|
|2 cup||Perky’s crunchy flax|
|1 cup||puffed millet, rice, amaranth, or quinoa|
|½ cup||Sprouted buckwheat (I used Kaia Foods Raisin Cinnamon Buckwheat Granola)|
|1 cup||hemp seeds|
|½ cup||sunflower seeds|
|½ cup||pumpkin seeds|
|3 Tbsp||sesame seeds|
|1 ½ cup||coconut|
|¼ cup||almonds, lightly ground with “S” blade in food processor|
|3 Tbsp||flax seed meal|
|3 Tbsp||chia seed, ground (coffee grinder works best)|
|1 cup||raisins, chopped|
|1 Tbsp||coconut o|

Nut allergy: Replace almond with extra sesame seeds. Can use tahini or pumpkin butter in replace of nut butter
