When Sarah discovered that it’s not easy to find a low sugar, high protein granola bar, she decided to create this special recipe and a video along with it. The result is a perfect 3:1 carb to protein ratio granola bar that’s not too heavy, and just sweet enough. This is what you should consume after a serious workout. Also good as a snack on the go and for breakfast.
Tip 1: Eliminate the almond meal if you want crunchier granola bars.
Here are the ingredients to make 8-10 of Sarah’s Gluten Free, High Protein Granola Bars:
- 1/2 cup Unsweetened Vanilla Almond Milk (may use regular milk, coconut milk, soy milk)
- 2 tbsp Honey
- 1 medium Banana
- 1 1/2 cup of Old Fashioned Rolled Oats
- 1/2 cup Almond Meal
- 3 tbsp Coconut, shredded raw
- 2 tsp Cinnamon
- 2 servings Vanilla Protein Powder
- 1/4 cup Almonds
- 1/4 cup Golden Raisins
Tip 2: You may also want to try cranberries and walnuts, or cashews and chocolate instead of the almonds!
Tip 3: You can make your own Almond Meal by grinding almonds in a food processor or using one of the following: nut meal, oat flour, whole wheat flour, buckwheat flour (gluten-free), amaranth flour (gluten-free), or simply plain white flour.
Tip 4: Use maple syrup or agave nectar instead of honey if you like.
