This week I resurrected and old (but really delicious) recipe: Alexa’s Trail Bars. It has been such a long time since these were last made that I can’t even remember why they were named that! The only thing I know though, is that I’d say they are worthy of having my name on them!
3 1/2 c. organic rolled oats
1/2 c. organic sunflower seeds
1/2-1 c. organic chocolate chips
2/3 c. organic butter, melted
1/4 c. xyla
1/4 c. maple syrup
1 ripe banana, mashed
1 tsp. vanilla extract
1/2 c. organic shredded coconut
1/4 c. organic ground flax seeds
1 large organic egg
Instructions: Preheat oven to 350 degrees F. Melt butter in a pot over stovetop. Mix all the dry ingredients together then add the butter and the rest of the wet ingredients. Combine thoroughly. The mixture will seem dry. Mine bars came out a little crumbly so if you wanted you probably could add another egg for less crumbly bars. Pat mixture into a buttered 9×13 glass dish. Bake for 15 minutes. These bars freeze great!
Another recipe I tried this week was bison sweet potatoe chili! It was fantastic! Look for the recipe in future posts!
Have a great week!
