I was trying to come up with the perfect high-energy snack for my 28 km run this weekend. So I decided to combine many of my favourite snack food ingredients. In fact, the peanut butter and honey combo is a throwback to my elementary school days when my mom would pack me a peanut butter and honey sandwich for lunch. They also remind me of raw cookie dough (minus the salmonella) and who doesn’t like raw cookie dough, right?!
These little granola bar like bites are perfect for breakfast on the run, and pre- and post-workout snacks. Kids also love them, so pack them for school lunches or snacks instead of processed snacks from the store. The combination of carbohydrate and protein will give you a boost of energy to carry you through a workout or to the next meal. And the peanut butter, hemp hearts and flaxseeds offer a good dose of healthy fats. What’s not to love?
Make these treats your own by substituting or adding in your favourite ingredients like almond butter or cashew butter, instead of peanut butter. The addition of dried fruit, such as cranberries, cherries, dates, apricots, etc and chopped nuts is also excellent.
