Introduction

Some easy to make healthy protein bars. Will still be good no matter what changes you make to the actual ingredients. I made mine with all gluten free ingredients, but that is not necessary.

Tips

Have fun with this one. I try something new every time I make this recipe. Also, vitacost.com is a great place to find many of the hard-to-find ingredients.


Directions

Gently heat nut butter, brown rice syrup, blue agave, cardamon, and vanilla in a sauce pan.

Mix all other ingredients in a large bowl.

Once the nut butter mix is well blended and heated, pour over all other ingredients and mix well.

Press the mix into a 9" x 13" dish (glass or corning-wear is preferable) and refrigerate covered for at least a couple of hours or overnight.

Serving Size: Divide into 24 pieces in 9" x 13" pan
