POWER PROTEIN BARS

 

 

In a saucepan combine:

 

½ cup crushed bran flakes

½ cup prunes (about 20) pureed with 1/4-cup water

3 tbsp honey or 1tbsp honey and 2 tbsp apple sauce

3 tbsp peanut butter

 

Heat on low, making sure mixture doesn’t boil

 

In a bowl combine:

 

¼ cup ground flax seed

3/4-cup oats (1/4 of which is ground)

1-cup protein powder

1/2-cup dried fruit, (I like to use craisins)

 

Pour dry ingredients into the saucepan and use elbow grease to mix together

 

Put wax paper in 10x6” pan and press mixture into it; if sticky, wet hands

Refrigerate until firm

Pull the wax paper out of the pan and using a long, sharp knife, cut the mixture into 10 2x3” bars or 8- 2x5” bars.

 

(Any fruit or grain can be substituted – just use your favourite ingredients)
