Raw Vegan Gluten Free Energy BarsPosted: January 9, 2013
1/2 cup rolled oats
25 pitted dates
1/4 cup agave or pure maple syrup
3 scoops protein powder (I use vegan Sun Warrior vanilla)
3 T. nut butter
2 T. physillum powder
3 T. ground flaxseed
Put all ingredients into food processor and process for about a minute. Continue to process adding a few more drops of agave until the mixture forms a dough like ball.
Place the dough ball into a mixing bowl and knead in the following:
1/2 cup of nuts and seeds
1 cup of dried fruit/chocolate bits/shredded coconut, etc.
1 cup of dried cereal (I used Enjoy Life Crunchy Flax and Arrowhead Mills Puffed Millet) I always look for natural cereals with as few ingredients as possible.
To experiment even further add dried grated orange, lemon or lime zest, or organic flavorings.
