Gluten-free oats, seeds and nuts equal tons of clean protein, iron, fibre and healthy fats for amazing, long-lasting energy.
Many stores bought protein bars are high in sugar and low in fibre causing an energy spike and then a crash, possibly leaving you more hungry and tired than before you ate it. Not these squares - they have all the right ingredients to nourish your mind, muscles, digestion and energy levels.
They are simple to make, delicious and perfect as a healthy afternoon snack or breakfast on a busy morning. I personally make a double batch and keep them in the freezer so a healthy option is always available.
These squares are full of clean protein, iron, fibre and healthy fast for long-lasting, even energy.
Feel free to add in some dark chocolate chips or dried cranberries but keep in mind this will add some sugar.
Do not substitute the brown rice syrup as they will not turn out. It is a gentle, natural sweetener that can be found at most health food stores.
