They’re quick, easy and a cinch to grab.
The healthiest ones are E.X.P.E.N.S.I.V.E. (ie. not always in the budget.)
I’m always experimenting with quick recipes to give my families something that can
- Be a snack to get ‘em through the day
- That’s easy enough to pack up and take with us
These little numbers fit the bill.
They’ve got plenty of protein and not so much sweet to keep blood sugars balanced . They make a great afternoon snack or they’re a quickie breakfast when we need to hit the day running.
Plus, they literally take 20 minutes to make from start to finish.
Almond Butter Bar Recipe
1 cup almond butter
¼ cup butter
2 TBSP coconut nectar or maple syrup (optional)
1 tsp baking soda
½ tsp of sea salt
2 tsp cinnamon
2 cups oatmeal
¼ cup currents [consider adding coconut flakes, sunflower seeds, cacao nibs, chopped nuts]
1. Preheat your oven to 350°. Melt butter in a sauce pan. Most of the melted butter is for the recipe, and use a little bit to grease a 8x8 square pan.
2. In a medium size bowl, cream peanut butter and eggs with a blender. This only takes a minute.
3. Add the rest of the ingredients, except oatmeal and currents. Blend.
4. Mix in oatmeal and currents by hand.
5. Press mixture into the prepped baking pan.
6. Bake in the oven for 12-15 minutes.
