Really fast, unbelievably easy to make, gluten free power bar and variations.
1 1/2 T sugar
1 T water
1/4 t vanilla
2 T peanut butter
2 pinches of salt
Shake of cinnamon and nutmeg (or pumpkin spice),optional.
Microwaved in a bowl for 30 seconds until sugar and water and vanilla dissolve, stir mixture until blended.
1/3 Cup almond meal (I use Bob’s Red Mill)
3 T Mini Nestle Tollhouse Chocolate Morsels
Stir in almond meal until a paste, while warm stir in mini chocolate morsels.
Form into bars on parchment paper and refrigerate until hard. Can be 3 small bars, 2 medium bars or 1 large bar.
Wrap bars in Saran Wrap and refrigerate (can also freeze).
All sorts of variations are possible. Use less almond meal and add chopped nuts, dried fruit, coconut. Could also substitute peanut butter with almond butter or other nut butters.
