DIY Work Out-Snacks

Energy/Protein bars are yummy and healthy. Strangely enough things that are good for you can also be bad for your wallet, that’s why I’m very grateful to all the budget gourmets out there in cyberspace for concocting DIY recipes for almost every thing under the supermarket roof.

First up Luna Bars, courtesy of Chocolate Covered Katie

  • 3 cups rice crispies (I used brown rice crispies. For a less-crispy bar, you can sub 2 cups of the crispies for 1/2 cup oat flour.) 
  • 2 tsp pure vanilla extract 
  • 1/2 tsp salt (I used salted pb, too) 
  • 1/2 cup plus 2 tablespoons nut butter of choice (for lower-cal option, see below link) 1/2 cup sticky sweetener, such as agave or brown rice syrup (I used agave) 
  • 2-3 tablespoons protein powder (you can omit) 
  • melted chocolate chips or No-Sugar Chocolate Sauce
Mix your pb, sweetener, extract, and salt. Melt (either in the microwave or stove), then pour over the cereal and powder, and stir very well, making sure to coat all the crispies. Smush and smash the crispies. (Get mad; it’s fun!) Line a pan with wax paper and spread the mixture evenly into the pan. Place a sheet of wax paper on top of the mixture, then press down as firmly as you can. Really press it down! Spread the chocolate on top, and freeze for at least a half hour before slicing
