Addictive Power Bar Recipe

Courtesy The Gourmet Review

Last week I tasted the most addictive power bars at The One & Only Palmilla in Cabo San Lucas. The One and Only  is definitely one of Mexico’s hottest hotels, so it’s no surprise that their award winning spa would feature some healthy, fabulous “energy” bars.

I discovered these power bars after a big work out at the spa one morning. Now, ‘m definitely hooked.

Steven Lindsey, Executive Pastry Chef at One & Only Palmilla, bakes these daily. They are seriously addictive. Thank you, Steven, for sharing his secret restaurant recipe from Aqua Restaurant.


SERVES: Lots and lots!!


8 ounces. butter

3 ounces brown sugar

5 ounces granulated sugar

1  egg

2 ½ ounces oats

2 teaspoons vanilla

9 ounces all purpose flour

2 teaspoons baking soda

1 cup amaranth (I found this at Whole Foods)

½ cup pepitas (I found this at Whole Foods)

¼ cup chia (I found this at Whole Foods)

½ cup golden raisins



Cream together the butter and sugars until light and fluffy.

Add the egg and beat until smooth.

Add the dry ingredients and seeds mix in.

Roll the dough into logs and freeze.

Slice thin and bake in a 350 degree oven.


I wasn’t familiar with some of the ingredients. So now  that I’ve found the three  super food ingredients at Whole Foods, I’m ready to try this healthy recipe at home!

The bonus is that this is a super easy recipe as well as a healthy recipe.
