We’ve created a delicious energy bar you can wrap and take with you to eat before a workout, on a long bike ride or for a boost after a run. Energy bars don’t need to come in packages to be good for you. Make a batch and freeze bars in individual baggies so you can use them as you need them.

Makes 12 Tarts

Whip up these yummy tarts for dessert and your friends will think you visited the local bake shop! The honey-flavored wheat germ in the crust enhances the flavor and makes it more nutrient dense.

(Note: This recipe also works as a large tart. Follow the directions for the small tarts but instead of using a cupcake pan, use a 9-inch pie plate. Pour the crust mixture into the ungreased pie plate and press onto the bottom and sides to form the crust. Bake for 10 minutes or until crust is lightly browned on the edges. Pour key lime mixture into crust and bake for 15 minutes or until filling is set.)

  • For the filling:
  • 6 egg yolks
  • 1/2 cup key lime juice
  • 1 14-ounce can sweetened condensed milk
  • For the crust:
  • 1/2 cup dry-roasted macadamia nuts
  • 1/2 cup shredded sweetened coconut
  • 1/2 cup Kretschmer Honey Crunch Wheat Germ
  • 4 1/2 whole graham crackers (1/2 package)
  • 4 tablespoons (1/2 stick) unsalted butter, melted

Preheat oven to 350° F.

Whisk together yolks, key lime juice and sweetened condensed milk in large bowl. Set aside.

In the bowl of a food processor, add the macadamia nuts, coconut, Kretschmer wheat germ and graham crackers. Process until crumbs are finely ground.

Pour into medium bowl and stir in melted butter until completely combined.

Divide crumbs evenly into cupcake pan with 12 cups (about 2 1/2 tablespoons per cup). Press crumb mixture onto the bottom and sides of the cups.

Bake for 6 to 8 minutes or until crumbs are lightly browned.

Remove from oven and spoon key lime filling into each crust. Place back in oven and bake for about 15 minutes or until center is set.

Remove from oven, let cool and then place in refrigerator to cool completely for at least 2 hours or overnight before serving.

Just before serving, carefully remove tarts from pan with a small, thin spatula. Serve with a dollop of whipped cream and a small slice of lime.

Serves 4

Instead of the same old pan-fried chicken, try a twist on tradition with this nutty, crusty, slightly sweet chicken dish. You’ll love its flavor as well as the nutritional benefits. Serve with Key Lime Sauce. 

1/4 cup flour

1/2 cup plain panko crumbs

1/2 cup Kretschmer Original Toasted Wheat Germ

1/4 cup sweetened coconut

1/4 cup finely chopped dry-roasted, unsalted pistachios

1 large egg

1 pound skinless, boneless chicken breasts, thinly sliced

2 tablespoons canola oil, divided

Add flour to medium bowl.

In another medium bowl, mix together panko, Kretschmer wheat germ, coconut and pistachios.

Crack egg in medium bowl and whisk until combined.

Dip chicken into flour, shaking off any excess, then dip into egg and then crumb mixture, making sure to press crumbs into chicken.

Place prepared chicken on a large plate until ready to fry.

Meanwhile heat large nonstick pan on high heat. Add 1 tablespoon oil and spread around the pan. Add two pieces of chicken, turn heat down and cook for 2 to 3 minutes or until crispy but not burned. Flip over and cook for another 2 to 3 minutes or until chicken is cooked and no longer pink inside. (Note: Cooking time will vary depending on the thickness of the chicken.)

Remove chicken from pan, wipe out crumbs; heat pan again, add oil and cook the remaining chicken.

Key Lime Sauce

1 shallot, finely chopped (about 1 tablespoon)

1 clove garlic, finely chopped (about 1/2 teaspoon)

1/2 cup sour cream

1 tablespoon key lime juice

2 tablepoons finely chopped parsley

1/4 teaspoon salt

3/8 teaspoon pepper, or to taste

Mix all ingredients together in bowl. Drizzle over chicken slices or serve alongside. Makes a generous 1/2 cup or about 2 generous tablespoons per person.
