I love Clif Bars. They are my absolute favorite source of fuel before long distance runs. Considering how much those little babies cost, I took it upon myself to try and recreate them in my kitchen.
I used prunes as the binding ingredient in this Clif bar recipe. High in fiber and antioxidants. I am also toying around with a different recipe using dates, but that will come later.
Spray an 8×8 pan with olive oil.
Place prunes in a food processor and grind until a thick paste forms
In a large bowl, mix prunes, krispies, oats, flaxseed, wheat germ, cinnamon, sea salt and cocoa.
Over medium heat, melt peanut butter and honey until smooth. Remove from heat, add vanilla, pour over dry ingredients and mix well. Quickly fold in mini chocolate chips.
Press into 8×8 pan, sprinkle with a few more mini chocolate chips and place in refrigerator to firm.
Mix together almond milk, peanut butter and powdered sugar until a glaze forms. Drizzle over bars and return to refigerator to set.
Cut into bars and enjoy!
