1 cup Whey protein powder, vanilla
1/2 cup Chia seeds
1/2 cup hulled Hemp seeds, shelled
1/4 cup Flaxseed meal (ground)
1/2 cup Honey
1/2 cup Applesauce, unsweetened
1/2 cup Almond butter (or peanut butter or sunflower seed butter)
1/4 cup Coconut oil
2 tsp Vanilla extract, pure

Instructions


1. In a large bowl, mix together the oats, whey protein, chia seeds, hemp seeds and flax. Stir until combined.

 

2. In the same bowl, add in the almond butter, honey, applesauce, coconut oil and vanilla. Mix until combined.

 

3. Mixture will be on the wet side. Pour mixture in a 8x8 pan and allow to set in the fridge until completely cooled. Mixture will harden up once it gets cold.

 

4. Remove from fridge, cut into 16 squares. Can be stored in the fridge for just over a week, or place in the freezer and they will last for a few months at least. They taste great directly from the freezer.
