Chocolate Muesli Bars. Шоколадні Батончики-Мюслі.

The days became longer, and we became more active. You are quite active? Right 😉

With spending more energy we need extra snack or two, and, hopefully, the healthy option, to keep our batteries recharged.

Unlike the bars from my Protein Bars collections, the bars, I offer you today, don’t have any whey protein powder in them. The Muesli Bars contain a variety of nuts and seeds that provide protein. If you watch your protein consumption carefully and need to rich a certain amount of protein per day, you might want to add the whey protein (or vegan option) to fulfill your needs. Simply add 60 to 90 grams of protein supplement to the recipe and reduce the oat amount from 240 grams to about 200 grams. Also, if using a flavored protein powder, make sure to reduce the amount of honey (or maple syrup) and be careful not to add too many dried fruits so your bars don’t become too sweet. Unless, you prefer a really sweet snack.

The artificial sweeteners, used in protein and other sport supplements, require a separate topic in my blog. I do have my own opinion about them. Being short,  I’ve cut down consuming foods that contain sucralose. As of today, my best choice would be an unflavored protein powder.

Protein Pancakes from Shrek. Протеїнові Oладки від Шрека.

Spirulina protein pancakes

My typical breakfast would be fried eggs with the veggies on a side but, honestly, I get tired from it once in a while. Then, I start to play around with the recipes for the protein pancakes. This time, I’ve added spirulina to make my pancakes green, and get additional nutritional benefits. Spirulina is a great detox component of your diet, besides being rich in minerals such as iron, calcium, potassium, magnesium and B vitamins. Spirulina is not for everybody, please read the warnings about spirulina’s safety and you might want to consult with your doctor, before consuming this algae.

Chocolate Cheese Protein Breakfast

This recipe is very similar to the previous one, Chocolate Cheese Breakfast. Except, it doesn’t contain any eggs. Also, this breakfast option is richer in protein thanks to added WPC. I used protein with chocolate flavor, and would recommend you to do the same.

This meal is quite filling. Despite looking like a cake, it doesn’t contain any sugar. As sweeteners I’ve used small amounts of raisins and honey.

Also, feel free to freeze it for future meals. I froze mine, and the taste didn’t get any worse. Just make sure you defrost it completely, before consuming.

To be honest, this one turned out as successful kitchen experiment, which doesn’t happen every time 🙂
