I am trying to incorporate healthier options for snacks and was hoping some of you had homemade recipes for protein balls/bars or energy bars?

Please note: any additional healthy snack recipes are welcome!

i'm not sure if you're looking for something really good for you, but yukky tasting, like Pottentia Bars? :rolleyes:

i've made these, and if you're feeling decadent, you can top them with melted chocolate!

zhuzh 1 Cup oats into flour
1/2 Cup oats
1/3 Cup protein powder (i use whey isolate from Isonaturals... nothing added)
1/2 Cup crispy rice cereal of some sort
1/2 Cup nut butter, your choice
1/3 Cup honey
2 tsp vanilla extract, the good stuff

mix dry ingredients in a bowl
warm the nut butter and honey till it's drippy, then add vanilla
pour that over the dry ingredients and mix well
press into a greased loaf pan, or a 9 inch square pan will work
refrigerate an hour or so, cut into bars

violà! no baking needed! :)

With a dehydrator one can make just about any raw and vegan and tasty protein bar at home for about half, or even less, the cost of one store purchased.

Energy drinks/bars are basically a bunch of caffeine after which you get a crash.

Protein is a good source of energy.

I love this recipe for peanut butter quinoa granola bars from Ambitious Kitchen http://www.ambitiouskitchen.com/2015/11/incredible-peanut-butter-quinoa-granola-bars/. I have tried several other recipes from this website and they have all been really good! Oh, and try the Black Bean and Avacado Brownies - they are perfect for when you need a chocolate fix. :) https://www.ambitiouskitchen.com/2016/11/healthy-avocado-black-bean-brownies/
Thanks day lillies gonna try these!
