Chocolate Trail Mix PROTEIN Oat Bars!

unknown

We all know trail mix is a great snack but also super addicting! I wanted to make another way to eat these yummy ingredients so I turned them into delicious freezer bars!

 These bars are very easy to make and take little time. Mix, pour, stir and you’re a few steps closer to your new favorite treat!

Dry mixture

♥ 1 1/2 cup rolled oats

♥ 1/4 cup craisins

♥ 1/4 cup raisins

♥ 3 tbs sunflower seeds

♥ 1/3 cup roughly chopped almonds

Wet mixture

♥ 1/4 cup chocolate protein

♥ 3 tablespoons chocolate powdered peanut butter

♥ tablespoon coconut oil

♥ water

You will need 3 bowls for this recipe! Your first bowl will be for the dry ingredients, second bowl will be for making the wet mixture and your third bowl is for melting your coconut oil in the microwave.

The most important thing about this recipe, is adding your wet mixture last.

In a medium size mixing bowl, pour all the dry ingredients, mix and set aside.

 For your wet mixture grab two small bowls, one being microwaveable.

With your first small bowl, mix your chocolate protein and powdered peanut butter together. Add small tablespoon amounts of water at a time until you get a syrup-like consistency.

In your second bowl (make sure it is microwaveable) melt your coconut oil in the microwave. This doesn’t take long so be careful not to burn!

Remove from the microwave and pour your melted coconut oil into your small bowl of the chocolate protein mixture! After you mix these two bowls together, pour entire mixture into your bowl of dry ingredients. Incorporate the dry and wet ingredients together until a thick oatmeal batter is formed.

I used a nonstick silpat but you could also use a baking sheet with wax paper.

Spread out evenly and place in your freezer to set.

After it has hardened, cut into squares or preferred portion sizes.
