Remember when I told you that my body hasn't been really thrilled with with overly sweet things. It's been to my benefit really because it keeps me from overdoing even the healthy treats and I think that's a good thing.
But in the late afternoon before dinner time I found my self pretty dang hungry and needing a good snack that didn't make me feel tired but fueled me on for the rest of my evening. Lately this has been my snack of choice. And it's one the whole family loves so I thought you might like too!
It actually kind of reminds me of those Krackle or Crunch bars....although it's been a very long time since I have had one of those so I'm not certain it can really compare but that's what these reminded me of. ENJOY!
Crunchy Candy Bars
2 heaping Tablespoons almond butter
1 Tablespoon honey
2-3 Tablespoons carob powder
1/2 teaspoon Real Salt
1 cup brown rice crisps
1/2 cup oats
1/4 cup unsweetened shredded coconut
1-2 Tablespoons chia seed (optional)
On very low heat melt the coconut oil, almond butter and honey together. Add the carob powder and salt, mix well. Remove from heat and add the rest of the ingredients. Spread into a 9 inch square pan covered with parchment paper and freeze until firm. Doesn't take very long.
