These low sugar, all natural bars are made by putting together a very simple recipe. Although the protein content is not as high, they make an excellent substitute to many protein bars and they taste amazing when eaten from the freezer.
Add the oats to a food processor and pulse for about 10 seconds until nicely chopped, but not ground. Add to a medium sized mixing bowl. If you don’t have a food processor, a blender will do the trick. Otherwise you can use quick oats.
Add the peanut butter, vanilla and honey to the bowl with the oats and stir very well until the mixture is totally incorporated.
Now add the rice cereal and gently stir to incorporate.
Turn out the mixture onto a cutting board that will fit in the freezer. Flatten it out with a measuring cup and shape it into a square or rectangle that can be easily cut into bars. Cut into desired size. 1 inch by 3 inches makes a good snack size.
As an option you can drizzle your shaped form with some melted chocolate.
Now sprinkle with the nut meal and then place in the fridge or freezer. Once they are set, you can transfer them to a storage container. Keep them refrigerated or frozen for up to 3 months good luck making them last that long.
Add some chopped walnuts to the mix along with the rice cereal for an omega-3 boost.
Crumble a bar into a bowl of vanilla or plain yogurt or some vanilla ice cream if you are looking for a treat.
