If you read my posts then you know it’s no secret that I have a terrible sweet tooth! If I don’t plan around it by making things to have around the house that satisfy my munchies without the bulge, then I’m doomed to fail in my healthy eating endeavors. This breakfast bar recipe satisfies my morning hunger, sweet tooth fix and rush to leave the house all in one quick, tasty grab-&-go bar! Since creating these little guys, I have saved my abs from so many un-needed and much regretted later trips to Starbucks for a quick tie-me-over crossaint or blueberry scone! Who needs that junk! These are more satisfying and totally guilt-free!
I always get creative with this recipe nearly each time I make it. It’s a different flavor or nut used so get creative after you try my ratio once. I also make it both vegan and non-vegan, but always gluten free! I use ground quinoa instead of flour and also cooked quinoa to give it fluffiness.
The ground carrots are a hidden trick I use to add in the nutrients where no one will notice. I do this in a lot of my baked items you really can’t even taste them!
The vegan version is very delicious but if you are not vegan the egg white version is fabulous and full of lean protein!
*for vegan bars: Substitute eggs for 1 cup organic unsweetened applesauce
Slice into squares.
For muffins, grease pan and spread batter evenly, bake at 350 for 15 minutes for small muffins or about 20 to 25 minutes for large muffins.
Store loosely covered in refrigerator for about 4 days.
