These are the perfect, all-natural fuel after your daily exercise. Variations are easily acceptable, but this is a good starting point for a tasty set of bars.
1 cup rolled oats
0.25 cup chocolate chips
0.5 cup peanut butter
2 tbsp maple syrup
0.25 cup flax seeds
Pulse the oats in a food processor until tiny flakes are present only. Add the chocolate chips and pulse into small bits.
In a blender powder the flax seeds (for optimal release of nutrients). Add to the oat flakes and chocolate. Mix.
Add maple syrup, peanut butter, and 1-2 tbsp cranberry sauce. Blend and adjust consistency with more cranberry sauce and sweetness with maple syrup.
Pour into a loaf pan lined with foil. Press into every corner and cover.
Rest in the freezer for 10-15 minutes, then slice and wrap each slice in foil. I store these in the freezer until I'm ready to eat them.
