H O M E M A D E PALEO P R O T E I N B A R
(paleo, low sugar, vegan) – makes 8 bars
During the holiday season, I need something sweet to satisfy my cravings when I see pumpkin pie everywhere. These are my Paleo go to homemade bar!
I love sweets but the sugar just kills me – literally. I get bloated, exhausted and depleted when I eat sugar but during the holidays I need to feel satisfied and not deprived. I also love to save money and not buy a healthy bar at Whole Foods – and this is my solution. They are so easy to make.
I love to soak nuts because they are easier to digest and I am all ab out the flatter belly and less digestive upset. To soak nuts, simply add the nuts to a bowl with water. Add 1 tablespoon Bragg’s Raw Apple Cider Vinegar and let soak for 6-12 hours covered on the countertop. Rinse the nuts at least 4 times then use them in the recipe. This is my surefire way for a flatter belly!
• 1 cup walnuts
• 1/3 cup almond meal
• ½ cup goji berries
• ¾ teaspoon cinnamon
• ½ tablespoon honey or a few drops of stevia
• 4 tablespoon water
1. Place almonds, walnuts, almond meal, goji berries, cinnamon in food processor and process until combined.
Then add honey and water.
Remove from food processor and spread onto an 8X8 pan and leave in the fridge for at least 2 hours.
These bars are so good for post workout, holiday treats, a grab and on the go meal or the afternoon snack.
For me, eating every 3 hours is important for my energy levels and these are one of the snacks I just grab and go with a Green Drink.
Easy to pack. Easy to eat. Easy to recharge.
