I have made several variations of this recipe over the past few months, and here is my favorite.
Toast in the oven at 350 until browned.:
2 c quick oatmeal
1/2 c almond meal (only 3.99 a lb at Trader Joes)
2 T. sunflower seeds
Meanwhile, heat the following ingredients on low in a large sauce pan:
1/4 c honey
1/4 c molasses
1/4 c brown sugar
3 T. butter
1/2 t. salt
2 T. vanilla or almond extract
The mixture should be bubbly, but don't let it burn.
Turn off stovetop heat. Add toasted oats and nut mixture to the liquids. Also add 1 c. dried fruit of your choice (I like a mix of craisins and raisins), and 2 T protein or flax powder (optional). Mix thoroughly until all ingredients are well coated.
Place into a greased 9x9 inch pan. Makes 12-16 bars.
These taste great, have lots of protein and good for you stuff in them. They make a good breakfast, or a good snack after exercising.
