Friday 15 March 2019

The snack for when you go straight from work to the gym and therefore can't have dinner until late. Or just nice in the afternoon or after exercise of course. You can make these bars without a food processor or blender, just knead well, but a food processor or blender makes it even easier.

This is a recipe from The Green Happiness Rock Your Body book and can also be found on the RYB playground (www.ryb.nl), as part of your personal eating schedule or as a separate recipe. A perfect snack for after a workout that you can do on the platform!

Forget the prepackaged bars from the supermarket. Don't be seduced by the sporty look, organic or protein-rich slogans. Always check the ingredient list on the back! But don't worry if it contains a lot less "superfoods" than the packaging makes it look like sugar is disguised under fructose or glucose syrup and the smoothness is guaranteed by the large amount of sunflower or palm oil ... We've got something for you! So simple and so delicious that you'll start to wonder why you have even looked at those prepackaged bars in the past. And this recipe makes 12 bars, which means that you should certainly manage to keep a few in the freezer and make sure you will be well stocked in the snack department for the time being.

Instead of pieces of chocolate you can also use (fresh) blueberries, raisins, goij berries or go wild with different seeds. Instead of almonds, macadamia nuts are also very tasty here. Or make it nut free and crumble sunflower seeds or dried white mulberries on top for the crunch. If you want the bars grain-free, you can also use almond flour instead of oatmeal.
