A variation of my protein bars

The other night I made a batch of my protein bites but I was missing a few ingredients to I decided to switch it up. Here's the original recipe and this is the 'new' one :) (the *'s are the changes I made). I was out of coconut oil so I didn't use that.

chop the following:
  • 1 T almonds
  • 4 halves of walnuts
  • 2 T raisins*

You can process the rest but I wanted them in whole pieces for mine:
  • 1/2 c. oats (I used quick oats)
  • 1/4 c. shredded unsweetened coconut
  • 1 T flaxseed
  • 2 T almond butter
  • 2 tsp honey*
  • 1 scoop of chocolate protein powder
  • half a banana, mashed*
  • 1 T chia seeds*

Press into a pan, the bigger the pan the thinner it will be. If you prefer a thicker bar use a smaller pan. This time I also used some coconut on top for decoration. It's so pretty!!
