Healthy Peanut Butter Power Bars
2/3 cup plus 1 tablespoon rolled oats
1/3 cup crushed peanuts
1/3 cup dried cranberries
1/2 teaspoon cinnamon
2 teaspoons chia seeds
2 tablespoons ground flax seeds
1/4 teaspoon salt
3 tablespoons coconut oil
1/2 cup peanut butter (all natural, no sugar, salt or oil added is preferred)
2 tablespoons honey
1 egg white
Preheat oven to 325 degrees. Combine the oats, peanuts, cranberries, cinnamon, chia seeds, flax seeds and salt in a bowl. In a sauce pan over low heat whisk the oil, peanut butter and honey until smooth. Pour the peanut butter mixture into the oat mixture, mix and then stir in the egg white until well combined.
Line an 8x8 inch pan with parchment paper and press mixture down. Bake 20-23 minutes or until edges are lightly browned. Let cool completely before cutting. These bars are best stored in the fridge until ready to eat.
