Agave Energy Bars
A little pick me up after your workout or for an afternoon sweet treat! Healthy and so much better than a candy bar! Even my 16 year old likes to snack on these bars.
• 1 cup crushed wheat flakes (or your favorite cereal)
• 1/2 cup raw sunflower seeds
• 1/2 cup sesame seeds
• 1/3 cup sliced raw almonds
• 2 tbsp ground flaxseed
• 1 tsp lucama powder
• 1/4 cup raw cacao nibs
• 1/3 raw agave nectar or raw coconut nectar
• cooking spray
Coat a medium mixing bowl with cooking spray and add all ingredients except agave nectar; stir to mix well. Bring agave nectar to a boil over medium heat. Reduce heat to low and simmer about 6 minutes. Pour over cereal mixture and stir to coat evenly. Press mixture into a 8×8 pan than has been coated with cooking spray. Place in refrigerator to cool completely. Cut into bars.
