Breakfast can get so boring. Don’t let it happen to you! Eat this along side some eggs and bacon!

How was your Valentine’s day? I don’t know how I feel about the extra romantic Valentine’s day deal. Personally, having my guy make meals on Wednesdays when I have to work late, always taking out the trash, and continuously doing my dirty dishes, is romantic. Those little things mean way more to me than presents. Or flowers. I kind of hate flowers. Why would you give a person something that dies when you can give chocolate? Whatevs. We did have Valentine’s Day breakfast at Snooze. The couple next to us reminded me of the first scene in Bridemaids when she is hooking up with that asshole guy and the he says, “This is so uncomfortable…I really want you to leave.” That’s what the couple seemed like. She laughed so loud at his jokes and he made fun of her the whole time. It made for an uncomfortable hour. My fiancé thinks they were brother and sister but I stand firm on my belief that they were lovers.

Anywho, we didn’t really get to see each other much this Valentine’s Day. He had to work an event so after breakfast at Snooze, I tried to be productive. Look at how productive I was:

  1. Workout
  2. Couch
  3. Twilight
  4. Twilight 2
  5. Modern Family
  6. more Modern Family
  7. Eat
  8. Make chocolate caramel bark
  9. Eat too much chocolate caramel bark
  10. Twilight 3
  11. Go to sleep because I’m disappointed with my productivity

Sooooo yeah. I was not productive at all. And it wasn’t even snowing that day. I’m pretty sure it was 70 degrees and THAT’S what I did. Like I said, Vday is overrated, so I did the most underrated things possible. Protesting against the system, ya know.

Anyways, let’s talk about real love. The bachelor love. Did you watch the last 2 days of it? Yes, two days. Ratings must be through the rough if they keep adding more episodes. Here’s the thing though, they’ve officially kicked off all of the crazies. What’s the point in watching if the crazies aren’t doing their weird crazy stuff? And whose giant purple lips am I suppose to stare at since he kicked Britt off? I really wish I knew what lipstick she wears. And who is going to make fun of other girls if Carly is gone? Now we have to listen to mouse voice girl a lot more. Now don’t get me wrong, she seems very kind and her voice isn’t as annoying when Chris isn’t around, but when he walks in the door, dogs come arunnin’.

Poop. I have a flat tire. I need to go get my life together.

    Best baked paleo treat I have made 🙂

  2. Christina says:

    So how bad is it that I ate half of these bars in one day?? Oh well, what’s done is done 😉

    I sub’d with Plant Fusion vanilla protein powder, and used a little less than 1/4 c honey and it turned out really well. Thanks!

  3. Mary says:

    I am attempting the Paleo lifestyle with my husband BUT he is allergic to tree nuts and any type of citrus including pineapples. All the yummy recipes that call for nut flours – do I substitute coconut flour??? Thanks!

  4. ash says:

    probably silly — but what’s cacao nibs??? is it simply cocoa powder but better?? love your website –paleo has helped me so much!

    1. juli says:

      google it, it’s similar to chocolate chips but not nearly as sweet

  5. Eveline says:

    Lol well at least you did work out in the morning 😉 This recipe sounds great. Is it really filling for the rest of the morning?

  6. Nicole says:

    made these into muffins! super tasty and the kids loved them! I added shredded coconut..YUM

  7. Rebecca says:

    Hi Juli, I have the same question as Crystal and didn’t see answer so here goes..any other flour you can recommend for those with tree nut allergies? I just found out my DD is wheat and dairy intolerant and already knew she was tree nut allergic. I am blown away and frantically trying to figure out how to feed her. I see a lot of almond ingredients across the paleo board. Any advice would be so appreciated!

  8. Sara says:

    Should these be kept refrigerated?

    I live in Costa Rica, and raise a LOT of bananas and am always looking for Paleo recipes to use up my ever abundant bananas. However…living in the jungle, means I do not have any protein powder available…would these bars be okay with out it or what could I substitute??

  10. Maggie says:

    For those wondering about subbing the protein power – I made them using 1 cup of almond flour and I put in about 2 tbsp of grass-fed gelatin (Great Lakes brand, from the GREEN can) for a little added protein.

    I also used 1/8 cup coconut sugar because my bananas were very ripe and sweet. They turned out great!
