I have been on a fitness craze recently. I love dancing (with xbox kinect, Dance central and Just Dance) and P90x with my brother. I can work out for about 5.5 hours straight and still have energy for MORE! I am addicted. So saying all of this, I  need to consume protein to help build my ‘muscles’ I haven’t yet because I dislike the taste of protein powders…

I went online and did some research for protein bars, i took the ingredients and made my own insane recipe. Its insane, because it doesn’t taste like some health food bland blah! It tastes REALLY GOOD!

Ingredients:

  • 3 tablespoon of chia seed, soaked in water (yield about half a cup)
  • 8 table
  • spoon of chunky peanut butter
  • 2 tablespoon of whole brown flax seed
  • 1/4 cup of slivered almonds (toasted with NO oil)
  • 1/8 cup of cacao nibs (for the yummi chocolatey flavour – I vitamixed so it has a thinner consistency
  • 2 table spoon of unsweetened shredded coconut
  • 1 small lindt dark chocolate 90% bar
  • 3 tablespoon of hemp hearts
  • 8 table spoon of grounded flax (moisture absorber)
  • 2 scoops of protein powder (I used pea protein)


Steps:

  • Combine all the wetish ingredients in a large large bowl: peanut butter, soaked chia seed
  • Add the dry ingredients: whole flax seed, cacao nibs, shredded coconut, almonds, hemp hearts, and protein powder
  • Leave in the fridge for a coupole of hours (… i have found since adding the whole flax seeds it somehow produced its own flax seed oil, so its a bit oily)
  • Remove from the fridge and add grounded flaxseed 2 table spoons at a time until its a non sticky, non oily, non gooey, non liquidly consistency
  • Roll them into balls, mine are about 1.5 inches in diameter.
  • And coat them with hemp seeds.
