Once I created this recipe, I used to be extra enthusiastic about it than I had been about nearly some other publish. I performed round with recipes to make a straightforward, do-it-yourself, kid-approved, all-natural, uncooked, gluten-free, dairy-free, transportable power bar that wasn’t too messy.
After months of trial and error (primarily error) and a messy kitchen, I stumbled upon a recipe that isn’t solely simple to make however tastes nice and meets all of my different necessities. And so they price much less to make than standard power bars too.
Since creating my unique Wellness Bar, I’ve additionally provide you with a few different varieties. I generally make chia seed power bars or chocolate coconut power bars as an alternative. Each are tasty, easy, and full of vitamins.
Why Make an Vitality Bar, You Ask?
I do know, there are already so many on the market to select from. The issue is, I’m probably not a fan of the substances in most of them. There are a number of issues actually. A lot of them include fillers, chemical compounds, and synthetic flavorings. Additionally, since they should be shipped and saved on a shelf, they normally include preservatives.
Don’t consider me? Right here is the checklist of substances from Clif Bar’s personal web site for his or her Chocolate Almond Fudge Bar:
Elements: Natural Brown Rice Syrup, Natural Rolled Oats, ClifPro® (Soy Rice Crisps [Soy Protein Isolate, Rice Flour, Barley Malt Extract], Natural Roasted Soybeans, Natural Soy Flour), Natural Evaporated Cane Juice, Chocolate Chips (Evaporated Cane Juice, Unsweetened Chocolate, Cocoa Butter, Soy Lecithin, Pure Flavors), Almond Butter, Dry Roasted Almonds, Natural Fig Paste, Cocoa, ClifCrunch® (Apple Fiber, Natural Oat Fiber, Natural Milled Flaxseed, Inulin [Chicory Extract], Psyllium), Sea Salt, Pure Flavors.
Apart from the truth that the phrase “soy” (an ingredient I keep away from) seems on that label 5 instances, the primary ingredient is brown rice syrup. On a meals label, substances are listed in descending order by weight. If the primary ingredient is a concentrated, high-carbohydrate syrup that’s made out of a grain, that’s an issue!
I seemed for higher choices, however most bars have an identical ingredient checklist to this one. Examine your favourite bar and see what’s in it! I did discover one bar that was fairly good; the Larabar. Sadly, Larabars are somewhat costly. And being a do-it-yourselfer, I needed to determine a do-it-yourself model anyway. The top result’s an enchancment on Larabar, in my view.
