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
2. Form into 5 bars and then roll in the crushed peanuts to finish.
3. Place in the fridge for about 30 mins
(Per Serving – 1 Bar)
Hope you enjoy these…
