Blueberry Lemon Crisp Protein Bars

Great for a pre or post work out snack...this can be adjusted for lower sugar (reduce maple agave) and higher protein (depending on type of protein powder you use).

Ingredients:

- 3 cups Gluten Free Sprout & Shine Cereal (brown rice crispy cereal), Back to Nature

- 1/3 - 1/2 maple agave pancake syrup (or agave)

- 1/2 cup almond butter or nut butter of choice

- 1/2 cup roasted & unsalted almonds, chopped

- 1/2 cup dried blueberries

- 1 scoop vanilla protein powder (I used Garden of Life Raw Plant Protein, Smooth Vanilla)

- zest of 1 lemon

- 1/2 tsp vanilla extract

Directions:

Place parchment paper in 8x8 baking dish. In large bowl, combine nut butter & agave & place in microwave until almond butter is melted & you can mix them together (30 seconds at a time). Add remaining ingredients & mix well. Place mixture in baking dish and with another piece of parchment paper, press down firmly so that mixture is even & will hold together. Keep in refrigerator for a few hours so it can set and then cut into bars or squares.

This makes 12 bars
