Just three ingredients- sign us up! In just minutes, you can have yourself a delicious and clean energy bar. These bars are even delicious frozen. They are a great grab and go snack especially when that 3 PM afternoon slump comes around.

1 cup pitted dates, soaked for 20-30 minutes
½ cup cream peanut butter or nut butter of choice
½ cup of Vintage granola or your favorite flavor

  • Once dates have been soaked and drained, add them to the food processor with the nut butter.
  • Pulse until the mixture becomes a smooth and thick consistency.
  • Add the granola and use a spatula to gently fold it in.
  • Line a 6x6 baking tray with parchment paper.
  • Spread the mixture onto the tray to create a 1-1 ½ inch thickness.
  • Place the tray  in the freezer for 30 minutes.
  • Once chilled, use a sharp knife to cut into desired sizes (to resemble granola bars).
  • Either place the bars back in the freezer or keep them in the refrigerator (in an airtight container).

Warning: they are addicting!

We were getting bored of the usual skim or almond milk in our morning bowl of granola, so we decided to create our own with our favorite flavors. This milk proves to be healthy, delicious, and it just takes minutes to make. Of course, it makes a great breakfast, but also try it as a mid-day snack or as a healthy dessert. Make this and we guarantee you will take your usual granola bowl to a whole new level!

1 cup of nut or diary milk of choice
1 ripe medium banana
1 tablespoon of Crazy Richard’s Peanut Butter Powder
4 ice cubes
1 dash of cinnamon

¼ cup OMG Granola

Throw all the ingredients in a blender and puree until smooth. Pour into a mason jar (or bowl) and top it off with your favorite OMG flavor. We love this recipe with Bad Monkey!

Who doesn’t love a good piece of toast (toasted, of course) with some nut butter and little added crunch? ‘Fancy’ toast seems to be the craze these days, and we are in on drinking some of that kool-aid too. A new favorite breakfast in the OMG family has become a piece of extra toasted crusty, whole grain bread smeared with peanut butter and topped with banana and granola, preferably Bad Monkey.

It makes a complete breakfast especially perfect pre or post workout. It’s provides you with a combination of carbs, fats (the good kind), and protein; you want to aim to have all three at every meal. Just make sure to buy whole grain and ditch the white stuff. It doesn’t have the health benefits that whole grains can provide you and won’t keep you as full either.

The best part about toast is that you can get creative: substitute nut butter for yogurt or cottage cheese, drizzle on some honey or date syrup, add preserves or fresh fruit and the list goes on.

Here we have some Justin’s honey peanut butter, a ripe banana and a serving of Bad Monkey. How do you like your toast?

Baked oatmeal is another delicious alternative to your ordinary bowl of warm oatmeal. And the best part about it? This recipe only requires one bowl and 10 minutes of your time. Then, you’ve got yourself a healthy and delicious breakfast ready to go! The granola naturally adds an extra layer of flavor, helping to keep the ingredient list short.

1 cup Bad Monkey Granola
1 cup old-fashioned oats
1 ½ cups almond milk
3 tbs Kuna Chia
1 tbs date syrup (or maple syrup or honey)
1 tbs vanilla extract
1 tsp baking power
Dash of cinnamon
Peanut butter (melted, for drizzle)

Set oven at 375 degrees. Grease a small baking tray and set aside. Mix all ingredients together and transfer to tray (except for the melted peanut butter). Bake for 20-25 minutes or until golden. Allow the dish to cool for a few minutes then drizzle melted peanut butter. Enjoy!
