Meal-on-the-go Bars

Submitted by: MCPARK27

Introduction

These bars are great for gluten-free in a hurry. Excellent for road trips or camping. Not a low-fat food, but packed with good fats and energy. I use them as a meal replacement accompanied by a piece of fruit, yogurt, or salad. These bars are great for gluten-free in a hurry. Excellent for road trips or camping.

Ingredients

    coconut oil
    peanut butter (natural is best)
    honey
    vanilla, pure extract
    egg, large, beaten
    unsweetened medium coconut
    sunflower seeds, raw, no salt
    pumpkin seeds, raw, no salt
    pecans, chopped, raw
    cashews, chopped, raw

Tips

You may sprinkle the top with 1.4 c of semi sweet or dark chocolate chips and slightly press into batter before baking.

If you are following low-carb just omit the honey and chocolate chips. Perhaps add a little xylitol or stevia and 1/4 c. coconut milk for sweetness instead.


Directions

In a medium size heavy bottomed pot, melt coconut oil, peanut butter and honey and stir until smooth. Let cool for 5 minutes. While cooling, combine dry ingredients in a small bowl and stir until mixed.

Add vanilla and beaten egg to pot and whisk until smooth and thick. Pour in dry ingredients and mix until well coated.

Line a 9x9 baking dish with parchment paper. Spread mixture in pan and bake at 350 for 20-25 minutes until golden. Cool in pan for at least 10 minutes before removing to rack. Let cool completely before cutting.

Serving Size: 8-12 bars depending on serving size preferrence. Calculations are done for 8 bars intended as a meal replacement.
