High Protein Bar Recipe

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

    Okay I seriously loved this post. I was once onthe protein bar kick too. I would buy the expensive ones. They would taste good but i took a look at the back and they were loaded with sugars.

    I was so disappointed. I decided to stop taking them now, but I will definitely have to give your recipe a try ASAP. I love trying new things especially when they are healthy.

    I think it’s a struggle to eat right when you eat exactly the same thing every week. It is important to try new healthy recipes and enjoy life and fitness more:)

    If used as part of a healthy and balanced diet, these protein powders are a terrific way of increasing your protein intake without getting any extra fat or carbohydrates.

    Here’s a tip for you when making sticky protein bars: after you place your mixture on waxed paper cover mixture with another piece of waxed paper and spread it out. Works like a charm. :)
