INSTRUCTIONS
Pre-heat oven to 350˚. In a large bowl, combine FlapJacked mix and oats. Add in applesauce and nut/seed butter and stir to combine. Stir in trail mix, chia seeds and honey until blended. Add in protein powder and stir again until all ingredients are well incorporated. Coat an 8x8" pan with nonstick spray and pour mixture into the pan. Using a spatula, spread mix evenly throughout the pan. Place in the oven and bake for 15-18 minutes, until edges are golden brown. Remove from oven and let cool. Using a sharp knife, cut into 2x2" squares (you will end up with 16 bars). Store in an airtight container for up to 3 days (freeze after that). ENJOY!
