powerbarThis Protein Power Bar recipe is derived from a recipe that my cycling coach, Steve gave to me. I added some nuts and almond flour and slightly tweaked the amounts from the original recipe. It is easy to tweak with different protein powder flavors, nuts, and dried fruit.

Ingredients

  • 1 1/2 cups rolled oats
  • 1 cup flax meal
  • 1/2 cup almond flour
  • 3/4 cup chia seed
  • 3 scoops protein powder (vanilla, chocolate, or whatever flavor – low carb!)
  • 2 cups chopped dried apricots (or other dried fruit)
  • 8 ounces chopped nuts of your choice (I used pecans and almonds)
  • 1 tbsp coconut oil (or canola)
  • enough Greek yogurt to be the binder (I used about 12 ounces …a little water can help the process too – don’t make it too watery)
  • pinch of cayenne, cardamom, cinnamon and ginger (if you want)

Once you have everything mixed well, press into a 9 inch x 12 inch pan, refrigerate overnight and boom you’re done. Low glycemic load; protein, carbs, potassium, omegas…energy dense bar that will deliver the goods!
