I am always into eating as healthy as possible and also Saving Money whenever I can.
With that being said, I have been playing around with making my own granola bars to make them healthier with ingredients that I choose and also to avoid spending over $1.50 for each one.
Here is Mr. Clark's Energy Bite Ingredients
(feel free to adjust/change ingredients to your liking)
3 Cups of Rolled Oats
2 Tablespoons of Organic Peanut Butter
2 Tablespoons of Local Honey
1 Cup of Pitted Dates (helps with binding)
1 Cup of Walnut Halves
2 Tablespoons of Organic Dried Coconut
2 Tablespoons of Organic Chia Seeds
1 Tablespoons of Semi-Sweet/Dark Chocolate
Few sprinkles of Cinnamon
Makes about 20 Energy Bites
(probably more, but somehow I started them small and they got bigger. I never said I was a top-notch chef)
Place the dry ingredients in a large bowl
Microwave (30 seconds)
1 Cup of Pitted Dates
1 Cup of Walnuts
Combine and Mix
All the ingredients listed above (dry, microwaved and blended-up ingredients)
On cooking sheet, set up a piece of parchment paper and create your own
Energy bites/granola bars.
Place entire sheet in freezer so all the ingredients harden for a few hours.
Take out and place in a container inside your fridge.
Enjoy whenever you need an energy-boost!
Remember the beauty of the fire by the beauty of embers
When we are born, a small spark is lit within each of us. Our flame begin to flicker larger in different directions and sometimes smaller in others. As we live our lives, we begin to find "gasolines" that cause our fires to burn with the brightest and tallest flames. We slowly realize that WE control the tenacity of our flame. The heat that it gives off. The brightness to which it glows. The excitement and passion it builds to. And most importantly, it's reach! The potential to which it grows!
Life is about harnessing our flames and directing them in the most positive, and meaningful ways imaginable. It is about connecting our fires to others and building flames so strong that nothing can extinguish them fully. The older I get, the more I realize that one day the fire I built, the legacy I have created will all but be in the embers that remain. I wonder about what stories my embers will tell.....
I welcome you to Mr. Clark's PE and Blog and I invite all of you to be part of
I created this website to extend my eternal flame to the world and to:

Stop back often and look for some Free "gasoline" to throw on your fire when you need some inspiration, guidance, or even just to have a mental escape.
