Pick-Me-Up {Power} Bars


I have another recipe for you today, and again, it requires minimal cooking. I don’t know about you, but the last thing I want to do is crank up the oven on these HOT summer days.

As a working gal, I often get a rumble in my tummy between breakfast and lunch. Rather than relying on my favorite (expensive) bars, I figured I’d give my hand at making homemade “power” bars.

My creation was adapted from this recipe. I put a Nutrition Nut spin on it, including substituting the flax seeds with hemp seeds* (I sprinkled them on top of the bars, too).

*Swanson Health Products sent me a few products to sample of my choice, and I’m telling ya, I just can’t get enough healthy hemp in my life – love the nuttiness!


Pick-Me-Up Power Bars

Perfect pick-me-up material for a mid-morning or mid-afternoon snack. Loaded with healthy nuts and seeds, these gluten-free & vegan bars are also excellent exercise fuel.

Enjoy your Sunday,

    These look delicious!

    Max looked at your teasers and he can’t get them to change with code either… We’re at a loss. Sorry.

    I need these now! I’m in a killer need for a pick-me-up after today’s run. I love that these don’t have dates in them too, I found that dates are just too coyingly sweet for my taste buds. I’ll probably be making these tomorrow :D
