Well, I got home late last night and started getting creative. I came up with these snack bars, which served me well and kept me from spending ANY money in town on food during our gig. That is a result, as I nearly always end up buying something.
Hence I call these, “Hunger-Busting Snack Bars“:
- 1/2 cup peanut butter
- 1 cup applesauce
- 3/4 cup flaxseed powder
- 1/2 cup oats
- 1/4 cup cocoa powder
- 2 tbsp oat bran
- 1 tsp vanilla
- 2 tbsp honey
- 2 tbsp gogi berries
- 2 tbsp cacao nibs
- Place all ingredients in a bowl and mix/knead till a stiff but reasonably smooth dough.
- Press into a 9×9 square pan lined with greaseproof paper and sprayed lightly with non-stick spray.
- Refrigerate for at least a few hours (preferably overnight) and cut into bars.
Make 8 bars or 16 squares.
Now be warned – I chose to make these not very sweet. Most of you would probably prefer them a bit sweeter, in which case just add some more honey (if you do this, you may need to add some more dry stuff to keep the dough from getting too sticky).
I went to the Health Shop today to ask for something for my low blood pressure and was given a Homeopathic thing called “Angio”, which incorporates a few different remedies designed to relieve the symptoms of low blood pressure. She also told me that upping my salt intake was not the best way to combat LBP, and that I should stick to a normal amount of salt.
I’ll let you know how the Angio works out!
