Protein bars - another variation

Today I had more ingredients on hand and I bought dried figs when I was shopping yesterday so I was really excited to try them.

I use a 9x11 pan and cut it into 16 pieces (4x4). Sometimes I even cut them smaller so I can have just a small bite. I entered this recipe into myfitnesspal and here is the approximate nutritional information:

Calories - 115      Carbs - 12       Fat - 7       Protein - 2     Fiber - 3     Sugar - 6

Here's today's recipe and it is AMAZING!

  • 3/4 c. quick oats
  • 1/4 c. shredded unsweetened coconut
  • 2 T sliced almonds
  • 2 T flax seed
  • 1T chia seeds
  • 4 dried figs
  • 3/4 small banana, mashed
  • 4 walnut halves, chopped
  • 2 T almond butter
  • 1 T creamed honey
  • 2 T coconut oil
  • 2 tsp cocoa powder
Press into a pan of your preference and put into the freezer or fridge. Melt 1/2 cup of semi sweet chocolate chips on LOW heat, as low as possible with a bit of coconut oil, stirring frequently - almost constantly to avoid burning the chocolate. Pour and spread over the base and sprinkle with shredded coconut or sliced almonds for decoration.
