Our fall schedule is loaded for September and we begin to add to it in October. As you are our reason to be, we always ask for any input on what you'd like to see regarding classes and times. We do our best to take what is requested with what will work into consideration. that is what is working and not working for you!

High Energy Bar Recipe
The Ultimate Energy Bar Formula
dry base ingredient (a combination is usually best)
In a food processor, combine beans, binder, sweetener, soft fruit, extract, spice, and salt until smooth. Add the oats and dry base ingredients and pulse just to combine. Add stir-ins and pulse again just to combine. If the consistency seems spreadable, you’re good. If it’s too dry, add 1/4 cup of water; if it’s too runny, add an additional 1/4 cup of the dry base ingredient.
- 1-pound can of beans, drained and rinsed (or 1.5 cups cooked beans)
- ½ cup binder
- ¼ cup sweetener
- ¼ cup soft sweet fruit
- 1 teaspoon of extract (optional)
- 1 teaspoon of dry spice (optional)
- ¼ teaspoon sea salt
- 1.5 cups of oats (you can toast them if you want but I can’t tell the difference)
- 1 cup dry base ingredient
- 1 cup stir-ins
Grease 13×9 pan with baking spray or rub with 1 tablespoon oil, then spread mixture into pan. Bake at 350 degrees for 15-18 minutes.
Note: You’ll have the most success if you use unsalted, unsweetened versions of the ingredients, and control the sweetness and saltiness through the sweetener and added salt.
- Protein powder (we’re fans of hemp, rice, and pea protein, like Vega Sport
- Brown rice flour
- Spelt flour
- Cocoa (max ½ cup)
- Whole-wheat flour
- Buckwheat flour
