Energy bars

Hi all!
I really like today´s recipe, because it´s very easy to make and the results are tasty, natural and healthy.
The combination of the ingredients make this energy bars perfect to eat before going to practice any sport or help to recover our body after; also they are the perfect snack.
Here we go!!
Olive oil
A pinch of vanilla
A pinch of cinnamon
Chia seeds
Ground almond
Oatmeal (150 gr)
Sesame seeds
Apple sauce
To sweeten: Agave syrup, honey or brown sugar (as you prefer)
This time I´ve measured the quantities with a small plate (as you can see in the above picture).
We start mixing well all the ingredients, the we place the mixture into the mold or baking sheet; press the dough well, so it won´t get loose.
Place the mixture in the oven 180ºC for about 20-25 minutes.
We take it out of the oven and let the mix coll down for 10 minutes and after that, we can the dough carefully.
 We already have our own homemade energy bars!!
I recommend you to add the apple sauce to the mix before place them in the oven, since this will help for the bars to not fall apart or break when we cut them.
They are really yummie and you can also add any other seed that you like, chocolate chips or raisins.
By eating one of those we can get energy and many beneficts, for example:
* Chia seeds: protein, fiber, calcium, antioxidants, omega 3 fatty acids.
* Quinoa: Calcium, phosphorus, magnesium, vitamins C and E among others.
* Sesame: fiber, vitamins, minerals.
I hope you try this at home, the result is really good.
Hope you have a nice day!
