Chia Recipe: Energy Bars

Energy bars are one of my favorite between-meals snacks. They’re especially great when you’re out hiking or exercising because they provide a bunch of energy and protein without a lot of extra sugar. They’re easy to carry around, healthy, and can keep you going for hours.

This is one of my favorite energy bar recipes because it’s really simple, fast, and delicious. It’s also a great way to use up any over-ripe bananas you might have. The banana acts as the glue keeping everything stuck together without the extra calories of honey or corn syrup. The raisins add sweetness, but you could substitute them for dates if you want.

Chia Energy Bar Ingredients:

3 Extra ripe bananasChia energy bars
1/4 cup raisins
1/4 cup Chia seeds
1/4 cup chopped nuts (I like walnuts and almonds but any nut will do)
2 cups oatmeal

Mash the bananas in a large bowl with a wooden spoon until they’re smooth and no large chunks remain. Next, stir in the oats. I usually use instant but I’m sure old-fashioned will work just as well. Then just add the raisins, Chia, and nuts. Press into a lightly greased (olive oil) 9×9 inch baking pan and bake at 350 for 30 minutes or until the top begins to brown and the edges start to harden.

I’m a salt fan so I like to sprinkle a little kosher salt on top for added flavor. You could also try adding some dried cranberries or even a few chocolate chips for an extra boost.
