Coming up with a name for this recipe was hard…
I guess, you could call this a third time lucky recipe? There’s been a fair few failures whilst I embarked on my journey to make a protein packed, super tasty energy bar. Firstly I didn’t add enough sweetener or nut butter and it was just a little too dry, attempt number two was with oatmeal – BIG mistake! Unless you enjoy lot’s of crumble?
The third time, it was just perfect..sweet, but not too sweet! No dryness and just the perfectly balanced and nourishing bar I was aiming for. The combination may sound a little odd, but I love carrot cake and personally, I’m very much in the zone of adding vegetables to my bakes.
There’s a flip side, G won’t touch anything sweet that may have hidden vegetables..You may ponder..’What does she do with all the excess or uneaten bakes’. I eat them. In the kitchen. Wearing PJ’s and secretly hoping I won’t get caught.
I am nice, therefore from time to time I remember that caring is sharing and these were was shared…regretfully!
Anyway, you don’t have to save these for pre:workout, these can be eaten 7 days a week, including rest day’s and day’s when you feel like you rule the world.
