Why is it always 1:45 in the morning when I get brilliant ideas?
This is why I have insomnia.
I mean, I'm THRILLED with the idea that just strolled into my brain already worked out, and that it gave me an excuse to blast funk and mix up a recipe of breakfast bars (Recipe below).
But for the love of fluffy kittens and ducks, WHY DOES THIS NEVER HAPPEN WHEN I'M READY?
Obligatory picture of Salinger: The Derpiest Derp to Ever DERP:
BREAKFAST ENERGY BARS
2 cups of rolled oats
3 ripe bananas
1 cup pistachios
1/2 cup pepitas
1/2 cup shelled sunflower seeds
1/2 package of freeze dried strawberries
1/4 cup raisins
1/4 cup dried pineapple
1 cup nut butter (I only had PB)
1 big tbsp Nutella (+1 for yourself)
2 tsps vanilla
1 tsp coconut oil (or Pam or other oil)
1 large cookie sheet
Mix all dry ingredients in a large bowl. In a smaller bowl mash bananas with nut butter, Nutella, and vanilla. Mash all wet ingredient until thoroughly combined. Add wet mixture to dry mixture and fold over with a whisk until all dry ingredients are evenly coated.
Coat cookie sheet with oil and press out the bar mixture to evenly cover the pan. Bake at 350 for 30-40 minutes, depending on your oven's quirks.
Cool fully and cut into bar size of your choice.
Best part: you really can use any seed, nut, nut butter, fruit, binder, flavoring you want, just keep the portions roughly the same.
