(40% carbs, 30% protein, 30% fats)  It’s a real challenge to find a snack bar that is low in sugar that also palatable. Here’s a recipe that has less sugar than most, is easy to make and tastes great. Thanks to the folks at Precision Nutrition!

½ cup organic molasses, maple syrup or agave nectar (may need slightly less is you use agave.  Warning – molasses is a strong flavour!)

½ cup organic (raw if possible) nut or seed butter (e.g., hemp seed, peanut, cashew, almond, macadamia, etc.)

¾ to 1 cup vanilla or unflavored protein powder

¾ to 1 cup organic dried cranberries, diced dates, diced figs, raisins, dark chocolate chips, cocoa nibs, goji berries (pick your favorite, or mix some together)

½ cup organic shredded coconut

2 tsp of greens powder (optional)

Work all ingredients together, adding the protein powder in small batches so the mixture is firm but not crumbly. Shape into the size and number of bars you prefer. Chill in fridge or freezer. Wrap in waxed paper for storage / transport
