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!
