Honey and Peanut Butter Energy Bars

I always seem to be on the move…and though I often fail, I try to pack my purse with healthy snacks.  Energy bars, fruit, or cheese sticks are my go-to’s…but those energy bars and power bars are often packed with tons of sugar and carbs and may not be as healthy as they seem…

So I’ve decided to start making my own!

energy-bars

Packed with protein and natural sugars for a burst of energy, these Honey and Peanut Butter Energy Bars actually taste delicious and are super filling.  The addition of dates helps give these bars a great chewy texture, and they’ll last a good 2 weeks in the fridge.

One batch will make about 8 large bars or 10-12 smaller bars.  I go smaller with these because they are filling, but they are great for breakfast on the go or a snack before a workout.

Honey and Peanut Butter Energy Bars

Ingredients:

  • 2 cups rolled oats
  • 10 dates, pitted
  • 1 cup peanut butter (the drippy kind works best)
  • 1/2 cup honey
  • 1 teaspoon vanilla extract
  • 2 scoops vanilla protein powder
  • Pinch of salt
  • 1/4 cup chopped walnuts
  • 1/4 cup chocolate chips (optional)

Instructions:

Prep an 8 in. or 9 in. square pan with parchment paper, letting excess paper hang over edges.  If you don’t have parchment paper, you can also spray the pan with non-stick cooking spray.

Place rolled oats in food processor and process on high for about 1 minute, or until oats have been turned into oat flour.  Remove and set aside.

Combine the dates, peanut butter, honey, vanilla extract, protein powder, salt, and walnuts in food processor and pulse a few times to chop up the dates.  Add the oat flour and process until well combined.  Pour into prepared pan and press into cake pan.  Top with chocolate chips, if desired.

Place in freezer for 30 to 60 minutes to set.  Remove and cut into bars.  Store in fridge in plastic bags for up to 2 weeks.

Baked Oatmeal Bars Recipe

Sometimes mornings are hard…

 morning mondays routine dexters laboratory GIF

Getting up, getting ready, getting dressed, making breakfast, AND making lunch…that’s a lot to handle in the short span between the alarm and the start of work…and that’s why I’m loving these make-ahead breakfast bars.

baked-oatmeal-bars

Made up of oatmeal, fruit, and chocolate for a little something sweet, these Baked Oatmeal Bars are great for a healthy grab n’ go breakfast.

I used strawberries, blueberries, and bananas in these bars, but you could easily add raspberries or blackberries instead.  Play around with adding your favorite oatmeal ingredients (I’m definitely trying pumpkin pie spice and cranberries in the fall!) to update and improve the recipe!

*One batch made 12 bars for me and they’ll keep in the fridge for about a week.

You can find this recipe at Diary of a Debutante.

13 Delicious Recipes for Christmas Morning

Ever since I was a little girl, I’ve loved Christmas morning.  The smell of pepper bacon and cinnamon rolls, hearing my dad’s Christmas music and gathering with my family in our PJ’s…those memories are some of my favorites ever and I can’t wait to have similar memories with my children.

Through the years, we’ve varied Christmas morning breakfast a little bit, but there are a few things that are REQUIRED.  First of all, pepper bacon.  Not that crappy processed bacon.  I’m talking real thick-cut bacon from the butcher sprinkled with freshly ground black pepper.  It will change everything.

Second, cinnamon rolls.  None of us even really like cinnamon rolls, but the smell of them is always what woke us up on Christmas morning.

Third…cookies.  My dad was a cookie connoisseur.  Gingerbreads, peppermint swirls, fudge, petit fours, homemade toffee…it was an indulgent platter of sweet bites.

delicious-recipes-for-christmas-morning

Once those three things were covered, anything else was fair game.  Roasted potatoes, bagels and shmear, casseroles.  As long as it was high in carbs and starch, it was a contender for Christmas morning!

Now that my dad has passed on, my sister and I are trying to continue the tradition with our families.  Of course, we’ll have the staples, but here are a few new recipes I’m adding to the list of possibilities to try out this year.

If your family celebrates Christmas morning together, please take the time to enjoy those powerful and meaningful moments.  Stretch it out as long as you can.  Laugh and tell stories and let yourself indulge in the magic of the season.  Honor traditions…start traditions…and may you and yours enjoy a holiday filled with magic, wonder, and good cheer!
