Bananas for Breakfast Bars: Banana Coconut Protein Bars

IMG_8992s title

This morning I was mindlessly staring at my large bowl full of ripe bananas, wondering what to make.  I played off of my Banana Nut Butter Bread recipe that I love and turned them into protein breakfast bars (okay, any-time-of-day protein bars 😉 ).  I cannot wait to take these to power myself up a hike!  Check out the nutrition facts of almond meal here & quinoa flakes here!marley beggingMarley really loved the bite she got…and obviously wants them all!

Chia Seed Breakfast Bowl Two Ways

titleIMG_7322s IMG_7317s

I love this nutrition-rich breakfast bowl (it also makes a great dessert!).  I used hemp milk (my personal favorite) as my non-dairy milk choice.  Check out the nutrition punch of this breakfast bowl from the hemp milk & chia seeds.

Chia seeds have 2 times the protein of any other seed or grain, 5 times the calcium of milk (PLUS boron that helps transfer calcium into your bones), 2 times the amount of potassium than bananas, 3 times the reported antioxidant strength of blueberries, 3 times more iron than spinach, and omega 3 & 6.  How do they make this pudding?  These great little seeds absorb 9-12 times their weight in water!  Want to learn more?

Banana Oatmeal Breakfast Bars


Don’t get me wrong, I LOVE hot cereal (especially now as I can tolerate GF oats, and quinoa cereal – YUM!).  I was just getting a little tired of having hot cereal for breakfast, so what’s a gal to do?  Bake up some oatmeal bars!  These are beyond simple, moist, & scrumptious (not to mention filling!).  Plus, this recipe can be made in your food processor (easy peasy!)
