Filling the Belly…Squashing the “I’m Hungry” Woes

Standard

I’m hungry. The daily, hourly lament of a 7 yr old boy.

Ii swear H keeps feed in his feet and has a bottomless pit of a stomach.

So, thanks to Prevention, we whipped up some quick less processed granola bars. Took 10 minutes and that includes the melting time of the peanut butter. Easy peezy lemon squeezy.

The Recipe:

1/2 cup honey

1/2 cup of peanut butter

-melt that together in a small saucepan on the stove just below medium heat

-add to a bowl of combined

1 cup rice krispies

1 cup of oats

1/2 cup chopped nuts…we used almonds

1/2 cup dried cherries or apricots…we did 1/3 cup of chocolate chips

1 scoop of vanilla protein powder

-mix thoroughly and press into a parchment or Saran Wrap lined 8×8 pan

-chill for 1 hour at least and then cut into bars

**if I was at home! I would have added flax meal! hemp hearts! chia seeds! and pumpkin seeds! as well as swapping almond butter for peanut butter and using less honey.
