This is a super simple recipe for energy bars I concocted when i was tired of buying bars from the stores. I had some granola on hand, but again I personally don’t prefer the crunchy texture that granola has, so decided to powder it. The result was pretty amazing and my family loved the bars.This recipe is so easy to put together that even kids can make it, as there is no cooking involved. Well, kids these days are awesome chefs and can cook with all kinds of appliances which is a different story. Kudos to these little chefs.
Coming back to the bars these can be stored at room temperature for upto a week and in the refrigerator after that. Very convenient as an after school snack or whenever hunger strikes. It is a very clean bar as there is minimal ingredients without refined sugar.
3 hours, 10 minutes
- 2 cups granola, powdered
- 2 cups almond flour
- 1 cup plus 2 tbsp nut butter, I used peanut butter
- 4 tbsp ghee plus more for greasing tray
- 3-4 tbsp maple syrup
- 1 ½ tsp pure vanilla extract
- ½ tsp salt
- ¼ cup chocolate chips
- optional: 1 tbsp toasted flax seeds
- optional: 1 tbsp toasted chia seeds
Powder the granola. I powdered mine finely, you can make a coarse powder as well, depending on your preference.
Mix all the ingredients until well combined like a soft dough.
Grease a square pan with ghee. Transfer the dough into the pan and press well. Cover and refrigerate for 3 hours or until firm.
Cut into squares and enjoy.
The famous proverb "you are what you eat” as quoted by the French author Anthelme Brillat-Savarin is very true. Food nourishes you from the inside out. Good health is of utmost importance to me. Vegetarianism and Veganism are gaining immense popularity these days. Natural, organic, healthy and homemade is my mantra.
