Monday Munchies

Today marks the start of a new series that I hope will be a long-running one. I decided it was better to post food-related posts on a certain day, not just whenever I feel like it. So Monday Munchies will now be the official day of all things food!

This week I will be sharing one of my favorite types of recipe...granola bars. I love experimenting with new protein/granola bar recipes. This one is full of protein and carbohydrates which makes it perfect for before or after your workout.

Healthy Protein Bars


  • 1/2 cup almond butter

  • 1/3 cup almond milk

  • 1/3 cup apple sauce

  • 1/4 cup honey

  • 1/4 cup dark chocolate

  • 1 teaspoon vanilla extract

  • 2 cups whole grain oats (or gluten-free oats)

  • 1/3 cup almond flakes or slivers

  • 1 cup protein powder (I recommend vanilla but you can also use chocolate)

  • 1/4 cup dried cranberries

  • 1/4 cup ground flaxseed

  • 1 teaspoon cinnamon


  • Place the almond butter, milk, apple sauce, honey, chocolate, and vanilla in a small saucepan and melt over medium-low heat and stir until incorporated.

  • Mix in the rest of the ingredients until fully incorporated. Pour the mixture into a parchment paper-lined baking pan (10 x 12) and press it down evenly.

  • Refrigerate for 20 minutes. Cut into bars and enjoy! These can be kept in a tightly sealed container, refrigerated, for up to 2 weeks.

If you would like to print this recipe out, here is the link to the picture. You can copy and paste onto a document and then print.

I hope you enjoy this recipe as much as I do! Let me know what you think and feel free to post a picture either in the comments or share it in the member's area. Enjoy the rest of your week lovely readers!

Until next time,
