No-Bake Chocolate Crunch Brownie

no-bake-brownies-4

Remember those “Munch Now, Munch Later” Nestle Crunch Chocolate Bars ?  The Food Network offers a sweet  healthy recipe using dates,  dark chocolate and crispy puffed rice and quinoa.  Pitting and softening the dates is the most time-consuming part but it’s worth the effort.  The No-Bake Chocolate Crunch Brownies recipe calls for Walnuts and Peanut Butter but you could substitute with other nuts and nut butters easily.

Seed Lover’s Granola Bars

As a kid, I loved gooey Rice Krispie Squares !

I adapted this recipe from the Alive magazine.

Well it’s not low fat or low cal but this bar is nutrient dense with 9 grams of Protein and rich in Magnesium.  All you need are Nut Butters, Puffed Millet and a variety of  Seeds.  They’re so addicting, I have to put them in the garage freezer for future lunch box rations.

All the ingredients for  SeedLoversGranolaBars may be found at  Bulk Barn or the bulk & natural food section at your local grocer.  If you don’t have Tahini, use Almond Butter & Peanut Butter.  If you don’t have natural Nut Butter, reduce the Honey.  If you find the Chocolate Chips & Raisins too sweet, try Chocolate Nibs and Frozen Cranberries.
