A friend of mine on FB shared this recipe and I thought I'd give it a try. My boys enjoy protein bars on occasion but I'm always hesitant to buy them because they can be pretty pricey. Now, some of the ingredients in this recipe are a bit pricey but it's all natural so at least I know what is in them when I make them. My family really enjoyed this recipe.
No Bake Protein Bars
- 2 Cups Oats
- 4 Scoops Protein Powder (we used French Vanilla flavored but I say be adventourous and try different flavors)
- 2 Tbs Ground Flaxseed
- 1/2 Cup Natural Peanut Butter
- 1/2 Cup Water
- Optional: Almond Butter
- Optional: Ground Pecans
Instructions1) Mix dry ingredients together - Oats, Protein, Flaxseed
2) Mix in Natural Peanut Butter, then Water
3) Mix well, will be clumpy and take awhile (trust me when it says mix well and it will take a while...use something sturdy to mix)
Line 8x8 glass pan with aluminum foil, then use your hands to pack the mix into the pan.
Spread a light layer of almond butter over the top
Sprinkle ground pecans over the top of the almond butter
Place into the freezer for 35 minutes
