Mixed Seed Protein Bars
Also from Graze, I had a small container of mixed seeds which I used for this recipe-sunflower, pumpkin and flax. I don't normally buy seeds, something I need to change because they are amazing in taste and nutrition, so I love when I have seeds in my kitchen. I haven't been buying dates because I will just binge on them and they are alot of calories and sugar-good sugar but sugar nonetheless. When I have dates, I need to make recipes with them so this worked out fabulously. These protein bars are perfect for any occasion-breakfast, a snack or just pop a piece in your mouth when you're having a sweet craving.
2 tbsp of peanut butter
1/2 cup of rolled oats
1 tbsp of cinnamon
1/4 cup of seeds, mixed or one kind
Pit and soak the dates in hot water for about 5 minutes. Put all ingredients except the seeds in your food processor and process on high. Transfer to a bowl and hand mix in the seeds with a fork. The mixture will be sticky. Press the mixture in a bread loaf bowl and refrigerate. When ready to eat, cut into bars, the recipes makes about 7 bars. Only 5 are pictured here because I ate two right after making this 😃
