Chocolate Peanut Butter Protein Bars

1/3 c Dried cranberries
¼ c raw slivered unsalted almonds
1/2 tbsp. Cinnamon
2 c. organic oatmeal
1 cup egg protein powder (low-carb whey protein is your next best option)

1/4 c non-pasteurized honey
1/4 c unsweetened almond milk
1/4 c 70% – 75% dark chocolate
1/4 unsweetened applesauce
/4 – 1/3 c organic unsalted peanut butter
1 tsp. vanilla extract (no alcohol extract if you prefer)

Mix dry ingredients and set aside.

In separate bowl combine wet ingredients and then microwave for 30 seconds bouts until mixture is melted and liquid-like. Then, toss dry ingredients with wet.

Line a 9×9 pan with wax paper and lightly coat wax paper with Pam non-stick spray. Refrigerate for 20 – 30 minutes. Then take wax paper with bars on it out of pan, place on cutting board, cut into approx. 8 bars. Individually store them in the fridge for a quick grab and go snack before or after a workout!
