In current culture, convenience is absolutely key.
As I've mentioned before, having bites prepped to accommodate quick needs is crucial to staying on track. Add these PB chia energy bars to your Sunday meal prep and you'll be ready for whatever the week brings! These are great as a pre-workout snack, with yogurt for breakfast, broken up on top of a smoothie, or to hold you over until dinner.
If you're not a chia seed lover, try swapping for flax seed instead!
2 cups rolled oats
1/2 cup Vital Proteins
1/2 cup vegan chocolate chips
1/2 cup chia seeds
1/2 cup raisins
1 cup natural peanut butter
1/2 cup unsweetened almond milk
1/4 cup honey
1. In a blender, pulse 1 1/2 cups of the oats until a flour like consistency.
2. In a large bowl, toss to combine oat flour, remaining 1/2 cup oats, protein powder, chocolate chips, chia or flax seeds, and raisins.
3. Stir together in a medium bowl the almond milk, peanut butter, and honey. Pour peanut butter mixture over oat mixture and stir until thoroughly incorporated.
4. Spread mixture into a 9 x 9-Inch square pan or an 11 x 7-inch pan. Press mixture down and cover with a lid or foil and refrigerate overnight, or until they harden some. Slice into 12 bars and keep stored in the refrigerator.
