Protein bars, or Grandma's Cookies

 Soft and chewy, quick and easy.

Ingredients
  • 1 Tbsp Flax meal
  • 3 Tbsp Water
  • 1 1/3 cup Oat Flour
  • 1/2 tsp Salt
  • 1 tsp Cinnamon
  • 1 tsp Baking Powder
  • 1 cup Quick Oats
  • 1 cup Hulled Hemp Seeds
  • 3 Tbsp Honey or Maple Syrup
  • 1/2 cup Almond Butter or Pumpkin Seed Butter for Nut Free
  • 1/2 cup Water
  • 1/2 cup Enjoy Life Chocolate Chips
  • 1/2 cup Raisins
Instructions
  1. Combine Flax and water in a bowl, set aside to form texture of an egg. In a large mixing bowl, combine oat flour, salt, cinnamon, baking powder, oats, and hemp seeds.
  2. In a small saucepan over low heat, melt honey and almond butter together. Remove from heat when just combined, careful not to boil.
  3. Pour over flour mixture, add your flax egg and 1/2 cup water, then mix well. Add chocolate chips and raisins.
  4. Press into 9"x 13" glass baking dish, but squish in 2-3" from one end, so your dough is about 9"x 11" Bake 350 F for 20 mins.
  5. Cool, slice, and serve. (They're delicious warm out of the oven, too...) I wrapped the bars individually for a grab and go meal. I'm storing them in my fridge to stay fresh, though I'm not sure they'll last long around here!
