Get energized with this energy bar recipe packed with chunks of apples and dried cranberries!

It’s super easy to make and you can make it ahead of time for a quick, satisfying snack. It’s a great sweet tooth satisfier as well, and I’ve happily eaten it for dessert many times 🙂

Here’s your Amazing Apple Cranberry Energy Bar Recipe:

Ingredients

1 cup old fashioned oats
2/3 cup vanilla (or cinnamon) whey protein powder (1.5 servings)
1/4 cup almond milk (or milk of your choice)
1/4 cup unsweetened peanut butter or almond butter
2 Tbsp dried cranberries
2 Tbsp diced apple, peeled
1 tsp vanilla extract
1/2 tsp cinnamon

Directions

Stir together the oats, protein powder, cinnamon, and vanilla extract. Next, add in the peanut butter, and almond milk until you get a thick dough. Add the diced apple and cranberries, then spray some parchment paper with a little coconut oil (or just spread some on there), and put your dough on there.

Use the parchment paper to flatten the dough so that it’s in a fairly rectangular shape—remember, this will be the eventual thickness of your bars so don’t make it too thin/too thick.

Stick in the refrigerator for an hour or so. Cut into five bars, then eat up! Store in the fridge or freezer.
