Ingredients

    5 C quick oats (dry)
    1 C ground flax seed meal
    1 C walnut halves and pieces
    5 Tbl honey
    1 C dark chocolate chips
    4 large eggs

    1/3 C Extra Virgin Olive Oil

Tips

Aren't the best tasting recipe but designed to be filling and provide lots of omega 3's, protein, and calories along with other nutrient dense ingredients. You can also make these into cookies or muffins if you prefer instead of making bars. After 15 mins of baking you can turn off the oven and just leave them in the oven until they reach desired hardness as well.


Directions

Preheat oven to 350. Grease two baking sheets with some of the olive oil and then put the remainder in the dough. Mix all moist ingredients and all dry ingredients separately then combine. Put half of the dough on one cookie sheet and press it flat to fill one half side of the pan. Do the same with the other sheet and remainder of dough. Bake at 350 for 10 - 15 mins and cut apart into bars. Space apart on cookie sheets and bake until they reach desired hardness. Store in freezer and use as a quick meal or to help maintain / gain weight from time to time.
