1 1/2 cup muesli cereal
1/4 cup oat flour
1 cup chocolate or vanilla whey protein powder
1 cup non-fat dry milk powder
2 tablespoons chia or flax seeds
2 tablespoons dark chocolate chips
1/3 cup peanut or almond butter
1/2 cup filtered water
2 tablespoon agave nectar or raw honey, to taste
- Grease an 8 by 8-inch baking dish. Combine dry ingredients in a medium bowl and mix well.
- In a separate bowl, stir together the nut butter, water, and agave until combined and smooth. Add to the dry mixture and work with your hands until a sticky dough forms. This is a fun task for kids!
- Spread the dough into the prepared pan with a spatula, spoon, or fingers. Refrigerate for 3 hours.
- When well chilled, cut into squares. Wrap bars individually in wax paper and store refrigerated or frozen. Include in your child’s lunch box and enjoy the rave reviews! //
