Healthy Post-Yoga Snack: Homemade Oat Bars
Have you ever felt famished after a strenuous yoga class or demanding workout? I often do. Occasionally during savasana while I’m supposed to be calming my mind, I’ll be thinking about what I’m going to eat after class! (I know, so bad right?!)
Usually, I’ll stash a granola bar in my yoga bag in case I get the munchies – always a healthier alternative to grabbing a croissant or equally calorie laden ‘Island Oat Bar’ from Starbucks.
Luckily, I found an easy AND healthy recipe for oat bars from Healthy Foody (who got them from eat, drink & be vegan). They’re wheat free, have no refined sugars, fast and inexpensive to make, and will fill you up!
I tweaked the recipe a bit and added 1/4 teaspoon of pure vanilla extract, cause I love the aroma it creates as it’s baking. Also, I used regular honey as that’s all we had in our pantry. However, they turned out great! Here’s a pic right out of the oven:
They’ll last for at least a week and are so much healthier than store bought granola bars with loads of preservatives. Plus, I was surprised at how quick they were to make!
