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

 

  1. Grease an 8 by 8-inch baking dish. Combine dry ingredients in a medium bowl and mix well.
  2. 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!
  3. Spread the dough into the prepared pan with a spatula, spoon, or fingers. Refrigerate for 3 hours.
  4. 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! //
