Energy bars… 

They are full of nutrients and used by many people in different situations. E.g. for breakfast, as morning or afternoon snack, before a work-out, during a work-out or after a work-out. The supermarkets offer tons of energy bars. Bars with nuts, seeds, fruits, cereal, chocolate, you name it and at least one brand offers it.

A while ago, that made me enthusiastic for making my own energy bars. Previously I made “Soft hemp protein chocolate barsand “Banana oats & seeds energy bars”. This time I wanted to make a more crispy energy bar, since my husband loves that a lot! Besides, I wanted to use as much as natural and good ingredients as possible. The other thing was that I wanted the bar to be a suitable as a quick fuel snack.

I ended up in using natural rice crispies, chia seeds, peanut butter, coconut oil, cacao powder and maple syrup as main ingredients .  Therefore this energybar has no gluten, no dairy, no butter and no refined sugar. Also, the bar is vegan!

These energybars are a nice snack for giving quick energy to your body (rice crispies, cacao powder, maple syrup) but also slow releasing energy (peanut butter, chia seeds, coconut oil). The peanut butter and chia seeds provide a lot of protein and good fats. The rice crispies, cacao powder and maple syrup provide natural carbs.

See the recipe below and make these crisps yourself!
