Million $ Crunchy Protein Bars

Craving a candy bar? Need an energy boost?  Crunchy, salty-sweet, with a layer of velvety chocolate, these fulfill their Million $ name. My kids thought they were getting a special treat. Hide them in the freezer, or they will go fast! 

  
Million $ Crunchy Protein Bars GF

By: Bekie A

Bottom layer:

1/4 cup coconut oil

1/4 cup of Sunbutter (or your favorite nut butter)

1/4 cup of  almond butter ( or your favorite nut butter)

1/4 cup honey

1 tsp vanilla

1 cup of Krispy rice or puffed quinoa

1/4 cup of EACH  of flax chia blend

  
You don’t have to have this brand. It is just my favorite since they contain berries and maca. 

Mix together the nut butters, vanilla, coconut oil and honey first. Then stir in flax, and puffed quinoa/Krispy Rice.

Lay wax or parchment paper onto a 13×9 pan. Spread mixture onto the pan to desired thickness. I recommend 1 1/2-2 inches.

  

Step 2:

Topping

1/4 cup hazelnut butter (I use Justin’s)

1 Tbsp coconut oil

1/4 cup almond milk

1/2 cup DF chocolate chips or regular

Place topping ingredients into a glass jar or pot. Heat on low until melted. Stir continuously. Spread over the bottom layer evenly.

  

Place bars into the freezer for 20 minutes. Remove and cut into squares.

  

Place squares into a freezable container. Store in the freezer or the refrigerator until ready to consume. Mine are gone in one day! 

  

Makes 20 bars
