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.
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
Line a pan with parchment paper.
Remove seeds from dates and purée in a blender (or bullet) with a few tablespoons of water.
Add date purée to a large bowl and then add all other ingredients (use your hands in necessary)
Press onto the pan in a rectangular shape and let cool in the fridge.
Once the granola is cooled, slice into bars and enjoy!
