Homemade Protein Bar Recipe

Here is an easy recipe for protein bars that is much cheaper than store bought bars and uses all natural ingredients.

Ingredients:

  • Protein Powder – 8 scoops  (Gold Standard Whey Double Chocolate; You can use any kind but recommend chocolate)
  • Oatmeal – 1 cup
  • Peanut Butter – 1/3 cup (Natural is best; you can also use almond butter)
  • Honey – 3 tblsp
  • Milk (2%) – 1/2 cup (can use skim, 1%, 2%, whole or Almond milk)
  • Ground Almonds – 1/4 cup

Directions:

Add the ingredients in the order listed above into a large bowl mixing them together as you add them.  So add the Protein Powder and oatmeal (uncooked) and mix with a spoon, then add Peanut Butter and mix together with a spoon until Peanut Butter is no longer clumpy; add honey and mix together with a spoon; then add milk, you will now need to use your hands to mix.  Mix together until it all starts clumping together and forms one solid chunk.  Then start separating and shaping into bars.  Roll the bars into the ground almonds, wrap them and keep them in the fridge.

This makes 5 bars weighing between 4 and 4.5 ounces each.  You can make them smaller or larger to fit you caloric/macro needs.  The mixture will stick to your hands so its best to get your scale and bags/wrap ready before you start mixing with your hands.  You can wrap in cling wrap (as shown in the picture) or small ziploc bags.
