SADDLE MOUNTAIN BREAKFAST BARS
2017 Bart Jordan
When I am looking for motivation to extract my exhausted carcass from the warm, loving embrace of my sleeping bag on a 10 degree F morning it helps if I have something to look forward to. That motivation comes in the form of Saddle Mountain Breakfast Bars. When I am feeling especially lazy I also bring a bar or two for lunch. My boys love to help with this recipe because it involves Nitrile gloves and mixing with your hands.
4 1/2 cups Quick Oats/ Coaches Oats/ Muesli
1 1/2 cups Peanut /Almond Butter
1 can coconut cream or milk
6 scoops ( 150g ) whey protein powder (I prefer Chocolate)
1/2 Cup Dried Cherries
1/2 Cup un-sweetened Coconut flakes
1/3 Cup Chia Seeds
Put on a pair of nitrile or other disposable gloves. This is a sticky affair and you want to make sure to be clean when you mix the ingredients.
Mix the Coconut Milk and Protein Powder.
Mix in the Peanut/Almond Butter.
Mix the rest of the ingredients.
When all ingredients are completely mixed scoop the mixture into a plastic-lined dish and let it sit in the fridge covered, overnight.
Cut into bars (you'll have to play around with what size works best for you. I like 1" x 2" x 4".
I put them into individual Snack bags to make access easy for my boys to have them for breakfast.
