I've been looking for something to keep with me for when I've let myself get busy and forgotten to eat. As I was looking through recipes for granola bars, nearly all of them had problems. Some had too much chocolate and would melt in this Florida heat. Some had too much sugar or added fats. Some were just plain boring! So I improvised a few things and this is what I came up with. The applesauce really binds the bars together well if it's done right! These are not low calorie, but as I struggle to eat enough calories, my main concern here was making sure to include as many nutrients as possible.
Stash these wherever you think you might need them: in your gym bag, kids lunches or sports/dance bag, in the car, before heading to the beach or on a long walk... very handy and way better for your body than all the preservatives and processed junk in commercial granola bars. Give yourself something tasty and nutritious for your new lifestyle.Submitted by ANNIEDANGER
These yummy bars are a delicious energy snack, perfect before a workout! Plus, the fact that the ingredients are RAW will keep in all those good nutrients for an added boost. Yum.Submitted by MRS_MORRIS
These bars are tasty and easy to make. They are "raw" energy bars, similar to a Lara Bar. With a taste that is reminiscent of pecan pie, these are a perfect snack before or after a workout. Let kids help roll the bars. Submitted by STEPFANIER
This is a bar recipe a friend of mine gave me. The original recipe was for a protein bar, but I didn't have any protein powder at the time, so I left it out. If you want to make it a protein bar simply add 2 cups of protein powder and add an extra 1/2 cup of honey. This bar makes a great snack for before or after a workout!
It's very easy to add in other yummy ingredients...some things I've tried are: sunflower seeds, dried cranberries, ground flax, raisins, sesame seeds, dark chocolate chips, wheat germ, nonfat powdered milk & unsweetened dried coconut. The possibilities are endless! This is such a great alternative to those pricey protein bars you can buy from the store & this way you know exactly what's in them! Just play with the recipe and have fun!Submitted by CD1181809

A filling breakfast or post-workout recovery drink, this protein-packed smoothie tastes just like strawberry cheesecake! You can also substitute any other fruit for the strawberries, or add half the strawberries and half a different kind of fruit. (We love the classic strawberry banana combo!)Submitted by OILPAINTER
