Take a large mixing bowl and mix all ingredients together. I would use a wooden spoon to mix. I broke a plastic one at a friends house. Sorry Lynnea! The best part is you can mix and make this in a few minutes and everyone can help. Clean your hands and roll them up as big as you want them.
TIP: As you are mixing, if it seems to sticky add more oats. If it seems to dry add more honey. Remember these will get dryer the longer they sit. They are lucky to last the day in our house!
They are also great in vanilla or chocolate ice cream. We like them just by themselves. Put in a resealable container like the empty almond butter jar and you would be recycling. Then just put the left over in the fridge if you have any and the family will be excited every time they open it for a quick healthy snack on the go.
Another great suggestion that tastes great!
First measure out 4 cups of crispy rice cereal into a large mixing bowl. Then heat chocolate, almond butter, coconut oil, and maple syrup in double pan boiler(one smaller pan has ingredients and set in larger pan with water). Heat just until chocolate is melted, watch closely not to over heat(mix will get hard to work with if you over heat). Then mix with crispy rice cereal in large mixing bowl until well mixed. Then take cookie sheet and spread mixture out evenly. I like to use a sheet of wax paper to place over mix on cookie sheet and by using your hands to spread out and then a rolling pin if you have one to pack and spread mix out across your cookie sheet. Put in freezer for 20 minutes to harden and take out and cut with butter knife the desired size.

Pour half of batter to chosen pan dust with flour so not to stick. Spoon filling on top of batter. Use half of cinnamon mix from box and sprinkle on top of filling. Use remaining batter and sprinkle remaining cinnamon on top. Place in preheated oven. Follow cooking time on box. I like to start checking after 35 minutes.Remove and let cool 20-25 minutes.

Energy Bars - No Bake
- ½ cup rough chopped almonds
- ¼ cup crushed pretzel pieces
- 1 cup rough chopped cranberries
- 1 cup rough chopped raisins
- 2 cups toasted rolled oats
- 2 cups Multi Grain Cereal (example: Kashi Go Lean cereal with fiber twigs, grahams and honey puffs)
- ¼ cup ground flaxseed
- ¼ cup coconut flakes
- 1 cup honey
- 1 tsp vanilla
- 1/2 tsp cinnamon
- 1/2 cup Dark Chocolate
- 1-2 scoops Advocare Muscle Gain
- chai seeds
- hemp seeds
- sunflower seeds
- pumpkin seeds
- cacao nibs
- Dried cherries
- Any whole grain cereal can be substituted
Combine pretzels, cranberries, raisins, oats, cereal, flaxseed, and coconut flakes in a large bowl.
Combine almond butter, cinnamon, and honey in a medium sized pot. Set heat to medium heat until just bubbling 1 to 2 minutes. Add vanilla and stir until blended. Pour almond butter mixture over the dry ingredients and stir until completely mixed together. There should not be any loose pieces on the bottom of bowl.
Use a 9 x 13 cookie sheet & transfer mixture to the cookie sheet. Press down firmly with a spatula and then cut off a 6 x 9 peace of wax paper and use to finish pressing and packing down (I like to use a small roller to get it tightly packed and even) from one corner of pan to the other. You can place in freezer for a few minutes or refrigerate for 30 mins. Then While that is cooling melt your dark chocolate in a double boiler( bottom pan with water and the top smaller pan with chocolate. To keep from scorching or burning chocolate) Once the chocolate is melted, take pan out of freezer and pour the chocolate over top. Then I use a small spatula to coat the entire top or you can just drizzle it if your using a really good dark chocolate 70% coca. Then I just place the pan back in the freezer for a few more minutes.
Cut bars into desired sizes after chocolate has hardened. You may want to recycle and wrap bars with wax paper and place in an air tight container. Keep at room temp for a week. Refrigerate for 2 weeks. Freeze for a month (thaw to room temp before eating and enjoy.)
You may want to substitute apricots for the cranberries or dates for the raisins. I like to add the coconut flakes, chai seeds or sunflower seeds if I have them. A ¼ cup here or there of some extra goodies is just going to make it more powerful. You may also want to add some cocao bits and then drizzle across the top of bars after pressing and packing them down. You may just want to chop the cocao bits up and throw them into your bowl of dry ingredients instead of getting fancy. Experiment and try something new each time can keep things interesting. Enjoy and have fun with it.
Beat 4 egg whites. Melt a Tbs of coconut oil in a frying pan. Then add your 4 beat egg whites. I like to put the lid on top for about 2 minutes until egg whites are at your preferred state. Add almond butter and package of oasis. Fold and add Oats over the top.
