Midday Crisis Bars

Midday Crisis Bars

We all know how rough it can be to get through an entire day of sitting in the office. This recipe has a fair amount of sugar for a quick kick to get you moving, but it also has some carbohydrates, potassium, and some nuts to get you through the rest of your shift.

Ingredients

2 Medium sized bananas

1 Large Egg

1 Cup of Milk (usually, when I make them, I tend to use 1% milk)

4 servings of Strawberry protein powder (equal to about 100 grams of protein)

5 tsp Honey

1 cup of dehydrated peanut-butter powder (I prefer PB2)

1 cup of all natural chunky peanut butter

1/2 cup of pomegranate seeds (blended thoroughly)

Directions

  • Preheat Oven to 325 degrees
  • Mix ingredients to desired thickness and consistency
  • Coat 9×13 baking pan with 0 calorie non-stick spray
  • Spread evenly
  • Bake for 7-10 minutes
  • Cool and Cut

Notes

You can add more carbohydrates by adding a cup or two of dried oats, granola, or flax seed. If you prefer sweeter bars, add some dried fruit to the mix – like raisins, dried cranberries, etc; just don’t add unnatural sugars!

Enjoy.
