Many athletes will quickly recite to you their favorite protein or energy bar. While this one has not been sent to a lab or tested for performance, after many iterations this bar has become a favorite! I hope you love the divine combination of peanut butter and chocolate! After all, what’s not to love?
Nummy Trail’n Bars
2 cups oats
1 cup granola
1/2 cup chopped almonds
1/2 cup broken pretzels
1/3 cup pitted and chopped (or pureed) dried dates
1/2 cup coconut syrup
1 cup peanut butter
1/4 cup butter
1 cup chocolate chips (I recommend any fair trade brand)
Preheat oven to 350 degrees. Mix all ingredients in a bowl. Press mixture into a lightly greased 9″x13″ pan. Bake at 350 degrees for 15 minutes. Remove from oven, sprinkle chocolate chips over mixture and return to the oven for 2 minutes. Finish by spreading the softened chocolate chips into a thin layer covering the bars.
Cut and enjoy!
