Protein Bar Recipe for Bodybuilding on a Budget

No Bake High Protein Bars

No Bake High Protein Bars

I used to be a fan of some commercial protein bars, eating 2-3 bars a week thinking they were good for me just because they were called ”Protein Bars”… and the ingredients looked alright.

But, the problem was that commercial Protein Bars are more than often LOADED with sugar (sugar alcohols even worse), and cost on average $5 a bar…

And, in addition from being healthy, they are super cheap to make: less than 50 cents per bar!!!

Hope you enjoy these bars.

Here’s the recipe I took from Anabolic Cooking:

Makes 5 Bars


- 6-8 scoops chocolate protein powder

- 1 cup oatmeal

- 1/3 cup natural peanut butter

- 3 tbsp honey

- 1/2 cup 1% milk

- 3 tbsp crushed peanuts

Note: I personally used 1 cup of milk. After using 1/2, I felt it needed more moisture.


1. Mix together the protein powder, oatmeal, peanut butter, honey

and milk.

2. Form into 5 bars and then roll in the crushed peanuts to finish.

3. Place in the fridge for about 30 mins

GNC Close to a Buyout?

Bright Foods closing on bid for GNC

Bright Foods closing on bid for GNC

Shanghai’s biggest food and dairy company, the Bright Food Group, is said to be close to an agreement to buy U.S. vitamin retailer GNC, for around $3 billion dollars.

The purchase would give the company control of over 7,000 retail outlets around world selling vitamins, nutrition supplements and sports drinks.
Private equity firm Blackstone Group are also reported to be in talks to join the bid by for GNC. However, despite talks it is unclear whether Blackstone’s participation in the deal is likely to happen.

News of Bright Food’s bid for GNC first emerged earlier in the week, with sources saying talks were at an advanced stage and a deal could be announced within days.

The potential acquisition of Pittsburgh-based GNC, would follow a failed attempt by Bright Food to buy Britain’s United Buscuits for about $3.2 billion.

As an American citizen, living in the United States, I’m old school.

Call me old fashioned but we’ve sold out debt, we’re selling our resources and now we’re selling our business.
