My husband ventured out last evening to do a trial run for his up coming adventure race. He left late yesterday afternoon and arrived home at around 8am this morning looking about 10 years older then when he left. It was tough going,the rain was coming down but they managed to trek approximately 60km through some pretty rugged terrain. The blisters and swollen achilles tendon representing the extent of the physical challenge. Given the physical endurance necessary for these type of events i have always questioned the benefits of store bought protein bars. I mean how could a product that has a list of ingredients that are unable to be pronounced be good for an athlete and their performance. It's got me totally beat! A quick dash to the organic supermarket yesterday morning fixed all that and my homemade version appeared which might i say were pretty tasty and could quite easily double as a snack for afternoon tea. If anyone is interested, more recipes for protein bars can be found over at the green groats. blog.
In other news I was pretty happy to learn that a collection of my recipes had been included in the "100 recipes for a healthy summer" guide collated by Integrative Nutrition. I have recently started studying with the college and am enjoying the course considerably with the hope that it will be a nice adjunct to my role as a Fertility and Women's Health Nurse. Time will tell but so far so good.
Protein Bars (inspred by green groats blog)
Makes approx 8 bars
2 Tbs whey protein
2/3 cup LSA
½ cup oats
2 Tbs honey
4 Tbs peanut butter
¼ cup sultanas
¼ cup shredded coconut
1 Tbs cacoa nibs
2 Tbs cacao powder
Comine all the ingredients in a food processor and process until mixture forms a dough
Scoop mix out of the food processor and press it into a lined slice tray (20 x 30cm) ensuring not to press it down to much (it will only cover about ½ the tray)
Place in the fridge to firm up before cutting into bar shaped slices
Wrap each individual bar in glad wrap before storing in the fridge until ready to use.
Hey There, I’m Sherilyn the creator of Wholepromise. This is where I venture outside of being a mum, wife and Fertility Nurse Specialist. I live on the Sunshine Coast in Qld, Australia and am spoilt by year round access to Farmers Markets offering a plethora of local, seasonal and organic produce. In all Wholepromise is my style of food, it’s the food I want my boys to appreciate and it’s the food that makes me happy. Styling and photographing it is just another bonus.
