In another post, someone asked for an alternative to feeding her husband and 5-year old son Clif bars for breakfast. Clif bars contain soy protein isolate, which is extremely discouraged on Plan-D.
Here's a great recipe for Breakfast Bars from Clean Eating Magazine. They are awesome! All ingredients can be purchased at a local health food store or Trader Joe's Ingredients: coconut oil for coating the pan 1 cup raw pecans, chopped 1 cup unsalted raw almonds, chopped 1/2 cup dried unsweetened apricots 1 cup dried unsweetened figs 1-1/2 cups rolled oats 1/2 cup unsweetened golden raisins 1-1/2 cups unsweetened Crispy Brown Rice cereal (like Erewhon brand) 3 egg whites 1/2 cup pure maple syrup or raw organic honey 1/2 teaspoon cinnamon 1/4 teaspoon sea salt 1 teaspoon vanilla extract Directions: Preheat oven to 350 degrees. Coat a 13x9-inch baking pan with coconut oil. Combine pecans, almonds, apricots, and figs in a food processor. Lightly pulse until chopped. Transfer pecan mixture to a larger mixing bowl, add oats, raisins, and cereal. In a separate bowl, combine egg whites, syrup or honey, cinnamon, salt, and vanilla. Add to pecan mixture, mixing well. Spread mixture into prepared pan, pressing down gently. Bake for 20 to 25 minutes or until lightly browned. Allow to cool 15 to 30 minutes before slicing into 3 x 3-inch bars. Makes 24 bars.
