    Marla as soon as I can get on the computer upstairs I know I have a flax granola recipe on there.

    I make what I call primal bars that are nice and soft but not really cereal if you are interested. They contain 100% unsweetned chocolate, almond butter, butter, whey, eggs and coconut if that appeals to you.

    Here are the recipes I use. Hope one works for you




    here is the primal bar recipe (like brownie texture)

    3 scoops whey

    2 eggs

    1/2 c 100% unsweetened chocolate ( I use chips and pulverize it in the blender

    1 c almond butter

    up to 1.5 cup raw coconut (or unsweetened dried)

    mix up and bake 350 for approx 20 min. Dont be shocked if it looks oily on top when you take it out. The almond butter separates but does go back in. I don't sweetened these as my whey has stevia in it. However you may like them sweeter than I do.


    Here is another that you could blend the nuts before hand so it is easier for you to eat.

    Primal bar

    Ingredients
    1/2 cup slivered almond
    1/2 cup pecans
    1/2 cup unsweetened dried shredded coconut (1/4 cup to mix in and 1/4 cup to sprinkle on top)
    1/4 cup almond butter
    1/4 cup coconut oil
    1/4 cup almond meal (blended almonds)
    1 1/4 teaspoons vanilla extract
    1/2 teaspoon honey
    1/2 teaspoon sea salt
    1/2 cup dried cranberries (or blueberries)
    Directions
    On a cookie sheet, toast nuts and shredded coconut until golden brown. In order for them to cook evenly, you need to shake up the tray at least once during cooking…trust us!

    2~Once toasted, pour mixture into a food processor and pulse until nuts are chopped and the mixture becomes coarsely ground (sort of the consistency of bread crumbs).

    3~In a mixing bowl, melt coconut oil and almond butter (about 30 seconds). Remove from microwave and stir until smooth.

    4~Add vanilla extract, honey and sea salt. Mix thoroughly.

    5~Fold in nut mixture, almond meal and protein powder until mixed thoroughly.

    6~Add whole egg and mix thoroughly.

    7~Fold in blueberries/cranberries.

    8~Press mixture into an 8 by 8 loaf pan (a modification that we made to keep everything crisper and help the bars to hold together).

    9~
    Cook in a preheated oven at 325 degrees for 10 minutes.
    10~Remove from oven, sprinkle a ¼ cup of shredded coconut on top and place under broiler until top begins to brown.

    11~Let cool for 10-15 minutes. Cut into 12 pieces/bars.


    Note: You can also add dark chocolate chips instead of the cranberries/blueberries (available at Whole Foods or health food store). If you add the chips while the mixing bowl is warm (from the coconut oil/almond butter mixture), they will melt into the mixture and you will have yourself a chocolate primal bar. Alternatively, you can just let the mix cool, then add the chips, then refrigerate the pan to get chocolate chip primal bars. The bars stick together pretty well without being cooked.

    ~~~~~~~~~~~no bake protein bars
    *Almond Butter "Fudge" Bars:

    No baking required. Makes 4 bars.

    Ingredients: 4 scoops of Chocolate Protein Powder , 2/3 cup flax meal, 4 TBS Chunky Almond Butter (or any nut butter besides peanut butter), 1/4 cup Water

    Directions: Add all ingredients and mix everything together in a bowl. At first, it might seem like not enough water, but keep stirring and eventually it will become a sticky blob of dough. If you must add a little more water, do it like a 1tsp at a time. Divide dough into 4 equal parts and shape into bars. Wrap them into plastic wrap and store in refrigerator. It is sometimes easier to put them into the plastic wrap first and then shape into bars because of the stickiness. Eat them chilled either from the freezer or refrigerator.








    flax Granola Bars

    1/2 cup of flaxseeds
    1/2 cup of flaxseed meal
    3/4 cup of oatmeal..use the steel-cut if you can
    1 1/2 cups of almond flour
    1 tsp. baking powder
    2 Tbs. cinnamon
    1/2 cup of Splenda (to taste)
    1/4 cup of Poly-D (optional)
    1/2 tsp. of salt
    1/4 cup of chopped almonds or pecans, etc.. (pulverize if easier for you to chew)
    1 tiny box of raisins (optional)
    1/2 stick of butter, softened
    CC milk or cream (1/4 cup or so)

    Preheat oven to 350

    Mix all the dry ingredients together in a bowl. Then cream in the butter until
    evenly dispersed..Now, pour in the milk slowly..until it is about the consistency of a slightly wet cookie dough..(not really stiff).

    Grease a 9 x 9 pan and pat the dough in the pan..Bake 30 minutes until
    slightly brown on the top/edges..

    If you like to have these crunchier, then cut up the bars and place them
    on a cookie sheet at 300 degrees for 30 minutes until they are crunchy on
    the outside..Then remove and cool..
