High Carbohydrate & Chia Seeds Energy Bar

So, I follow in a high carbohydrate diet. I’ve stopped worrying about my protein intake and all I make sure of is that I eat tons of carbs after my workouts. This isn’t something that I just conjured up. There’s many resources out there that subscribe to the high carb diet primarily for endurance athletes with large energy expenditures.
Anyways, my main gripe with the energy bars availalble out there is that they have way too much fat and protein and not enough carbs. So I decided to make my own where I can control the amount and quality of the carbs I eat.
Here’s the recipe for the high carb energy bar that I’ve been using for a little bit now and it works (and tastes) great.

Instructions:

– Mix in some of the V8 juice until the consistency is that of bread dough.
– Spread the dough in a greased pan (8″ * 11″)
– Bake at 375 degrees F for 20 mins. If you like a crunchy exterior, broil on low for 4-5 mins.
– I cut em up into 18 bars.

Enjoy!
