With a newborn, I needed something healthy, quick and easy to grab throughout the day and these are perfect! I think I’m going to make a batch every week to keep on hand!
2 cup rolled oats
1 1/4 cup crispy rice cereal
1/3 cup pumpkin seeds
1 Tablespoon chia seeds
1/4 cup finely ground flaxseed
1/2 cup honey
1/3 cup creamy peanut butter
1 Tablespoon coconut oil
1 teaspoon vanilla extract
1. Add all the dry ingredients to a large bowl and mix them together.
2. In a separate bowl, mix together the wet ingredients and microwave them for about 20 to 30 seconds.
3. Pour wet ingredients into dry and mix!
4. Pour mixture into a 9×9 pan and push together with wax paper until ingredients stick. Put in fridge if bars seem soft – I usually have to put them in the fridge for a few hours. Cut into 9 bars!
Nutrition Notes: Loaded with fiber, protein and good fats – these bars are a nutritional powerhouse!
Taste Test: Delicious! Crunchy and they definately hit the spot when you want something a little sweet. They also kept me full for hours, which is a feat when you are breastfeeding and constantly hungry!
