1 cup homemade granola

½ cup raisins or chopped dried fruit of choice

½ cup vegan grain sweetened chocolate chips (available at the Great Value)

Pour the batter into a lightly oiled 9X9 inch pan. Bake for 20-25 minutes, or until a knife inserted into the center tests clean. Cool until just warm, then cut into 8 bars. To pack into a lunch box, wrap each bar in parchment paper or a small container. Enjoy!

Complete Power Balls

Eat Heal Glow

1 cups oats (I use GF)

10 dates

1/3 cup sunflower seeds

1/2 cup walnuts

1 T honey

1 T pure maple syrup

2 T unsweetened cocoa

2 scoops Juice + Complete chocolate or vanilla powder

1 1/2 cup peanut butter

1 t vanilla

 

* My changes / additions. I add a pinch of baking soda to enhance flavor. It is also alkalizing. If using natural nut butter (I use 1/2 almond butter and 1/2 natural peanut butter) You will need to add 2 tablespoons water.

 

Fully process dates first then add oats and pulse together.  I add all the other ingredients next and the peanut butter last. Roll into small balls and roll in dark cacao, crushed nuts or coconut if desired. Place on cookie sheet and freeze. When frozen put them in a sealed container or ziplock bag and keep frozen until using. Enjoy!
