Mixed Seed Protein Bars


I set up a delivery of Graze snacks, has anyone heard of Graze.com? You set up a payment and a schedule and they deliver delicious snacks right to your door. You can specify what kind of snacks you want based on your dietary needs It's cool. Anyway, I ate one of their protein flapjacks and it was so delish I made a similar one. I love protein bars-their chewiness, the energy they give, the sweetness and filling feeling you get after enjoying one. They are so easy to make at home that it doesn't make sense to buy them.


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.


15 dates, pitted
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 😃

Chewy Energy Bars (no added sugar, vegan, gluten-free)

Energy bars with lot of fiber, minimal sugar and high protein are a great snack. I grab and just go and I feel full for the time that I'm out and about and I need to get things done. I love a few brands of energy bars but I also love making my own-it's easy to choose what ingredients go in them and you can make a bunch and freeze These particular bars are without sugar by default since I ran out of maple syrup. They are still so delish!


Three Ingredient Fudgy Brownies

These brownies did not come out of my brain as they are not my recipe. I found the recipe on instagram under @lilsipper. Her account is so so cool; she makes very cool, delicious looking food, mostly desserts, using very interesting ingredients and ingredients you would not think to use. For instance, this recipe is just fruit and cocoa powder and it makes the most delicious brownies. So, if you are on instagram or Facebook, follow @lilsipper. Her Facebook is @lmLilSipper.

Peanut Butter Vanilla Oat Milk Smoothie

I love trying new plant-based milks even though I usually buy West Soy unsweetened soy milk. I go for milks that have the least amount of ingredients and are organic. West Soy unsweetened plain soy milk is organic soybeans and water. Beautiful. If I don't buy milk, I make it myself, either almond or oat milk. Yesterday I bought oat milk and it is DELICIOUS!
