A healthy lifestyle is so crucial. What most people don’t know is that being healthy doesn’t have to be hard. Don’t be overwhelmed- you can take small steps in the right direction. It’s good for the body to get in exercise on a regular basis. But most of us know that energy is much needed to take on any sort of physical activity. Going to your local grocery store to pick out a few protein bars can be good and all, but those tend to have a lot of hidden sugars and artificial fillers. So, instead we decided to make our own! An organic power bar filled with a ton of nutrients to give you the energy you need!
-3 cups of organic granola cereal. (We chose a ceral that not only had granola, but wheat flakes, sliced almonds and sun-dried fruit!)
-1/2 cup of organic crunchy peanut butter (or any nut butter you prefer)
-1/2 cup of pure, organic honey
-1/2 cup of chocolate chips (go ahead and freeze these to keep them from totally melting when ready to add to your mix)
Start by adding the honey and peanut butter into a sauce pan.Stir on low heat until fully mixed and melted togetherOnce melted together, begin to add your cereal to the mixture.Mix well Once you feel like all the ingredients are married, add your frozen chocolate chips. Mix in the chocolate just enough so they are evenly distributed. You don’t want them to melt too much.Remove pan from stove. Pour your Power Bar mix into a small pan. Pack down tight and evenly. Next, refrigerate for a least 4+ hours. Cut and serve.Now you are ready to hit the gym or just have the right energy you need to start your day. Enjoy!
