Natural High-Protein Granola Bars

9 Posted by - Food & Recipes, Health & Fitness


As wedding photographers we often find ourselves working easily 8 up to 16 hour days at a time.  Anyone who’s shot a wedding can testify that the physical and mental demands required to do this well wreaks havoc on the body resulting in something we call “post-wedding hangover”, and (unfortunately for most) has nothing to do with alcohol.  So what are the things we do to get ourselves through the day?  Well, one of the most recent things I’ve been doing is making high-protein granola bars.   I love these little homemade gems because not only are they are supercharged with natural, healthy energy, they are easy to pack and clean to eat.  Those who’ve had the pleasure of sharing a meal with me knows I’m notorious for leaving a portion of my plate on my shirt.  I instagrammed/facebooked a quick photo this weekend and got a number of requests for the recipe, so here we go!


Just a note on the quinoa.  I measure 3/4 cup of uncooked quinoa, blend them up for 40 seconds in my Vitamix grain canister to make 1 cup of quinoa flour.  If you have quinoa flakes that will works just as well.
