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.

Ingredients:Agave Energy 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.
