Here is a Great Way to Replace Store bought Protein Bars. Recipe for Maple Nut Orbs!

I can’t tell you how many times I’ve been to the grocery store staring at rows and rows of protein bars.

I often  like to have a mid-afternoon snack with protein to sustain my energy and keep my blood sugars stable, and protein bars usually seem like the perfect snack answer.

HOWEVER, I never like them… I have yet to find one that I think tastes fresh and delicious, so I’ve solved my problem and decided to make my own.

They are not only good for you, the are DELICIOUS! Best of all, they are so easy to make. Enjoy the video and below, I have written out the recipe for you. Enjoy!

Let me know in the comments below what you think, how you like them and which variation you like best.

Maple Nut Orbs:

  • 1 cup of nut butter of your choice, my favorite is Organic Peanut Butter
  • 1 cup of oat bran
  • 1/2 cup of wheatgerm
  • 1/2 cup sesame seeds
  • 1/3 – 1/2 cup maple syrup
  • Optional: nuts, seeds, dried fruit of your choice. ( loved dried cranberries in my PB Orbs)

Directions: sooooooo easy

  1. Combine nut butter and maple syrup in food processor to blend together first
  2. Add the dry ingredients, (except the optional ingredients), blend.
  3. Fold in optional ingredients.
  4. Roll into balls or spread into 8 X 8 pan and cut into squares
  5. Chill

Can’t wait to hear what you think about them. You also get to meet my friend and Yoga teacher Yvonne. Enjoy.

Much Love, Dianne
