HIGH PROTEIN GRANOLA BARS

I love a good grab-and-go snack but store bought granola bars are often lower in protein. Try this little recipe for a homemade, high protein and zero-packaging alternative.

Ingredients 

  • 1 cup ground almonds

  • 1 cup rolled oats

  • ½ cup nut butter (my fav is almond hazelnut), room temperature 

  • ½ cup shredded coconut 

  • 4 medjool dates

  • 2 tbsp chia seeds

  • 1 tbsp maple syrup 

  • 1 tbsp coconut oil, melted

Instructions 

  1. Line a pan with parchment paper

  2. Remove seeds from dates and purée in blender (or bullet) with a few tablespoons of water.

  3. Add date purée to a large bowl and then add all other ingredients (use your hands in necessary)

  4. Press onto pan in a rectangular shape and let cool in fridge

  5. Once the granola is cooled, slice into bars and enjoy!
