Did you know our gut is considered our second brain? It controls things like our moods, choices and overall health. Which is why it’s so important to be mindful of what we put inside our bodies for nourishment. These gut healthy, anti inflammatory vegan perfect bars are inspired by San Diego’s Perfect Bar company. Packed with plant protein like chickpeas and oat flour, it’s the perfect midday snack to pair with afternoon tea.

Why are anti inflammatory foods good for gut health?

Inflammation within the gut may produce chronic symptoms in your gut like gas, bloating, constipation and even lead to disease. Which is why it’s important to select foods which can reduce inflammation within the gut.

What are anti inflammatory snack foods?

Chickpeas, hummus, blueberries, walnuts, avocado toast with whole grains and gut healthy smoothies.

Ingredients needed for this recipe

  • Oat flour
  • Chickpeas, rinsed and cooked
  • Vanilla protein powder
  • Salt
  • Natural peanut butter
  • Maple syrup
  • Vanilla extract
  • Melted coconut oil
  • Mini chocolate chips
  • Pumpkin seeds
  • Dried cranberries

How to prepare this anti inflammatory snack idea

In a food processor, mix together oat flour, chickpeas, protein powder, and salt. Once made into a powdery mixture add to a large mixing bowl.

Add in peanut butter, maple syrup, vanilla extract, and 1 tbsp coconut oil. Mix. It will be very thick, I suggest using your hands to really mix well. It should eventually come together like playdough, but if it’s still too dry add more coconut oil.

Mix in chocolate chips, pumpkin seeds and cranberries again using hand or spoon.

Press into a bread pan (~8×4) and add more chocolate chips on top if desired. Press them into the top.

Let sit in fridge for at least 1 hour before cutting into. Store in fridge.

Optional
Melt 3/4 cup chocolate chip and dip bars into melted chocolate, freeze again.
