Make Your Own Protein Bars!

Meal replacement bars are a great, convenient way to make sure you’re never left stranded without a healthy snack.  The only problem is that they’re typically really unhealthy!  Most of them are filled with sugar and processed crap.  There are a few good brands of protein bars that you might want to check out – the organic food bar is one of them.  But, if you really want to know what’s going into your bars – and save some money, for that matter – try making your own!

This recipe is from About.com’s bodybuilding section.  Head over and check it out for more details on how to make them yourself, but here is a list of the main ingredients to give you an idea:

  • Quick oats
  • Powdered milk
  • Protein powder
  • Maple syrup
  • Egg whites
  • Orange juice
  • Vanilla
  • Apple sauce

You essentially mix all the ingredients together and bake them for about 20 minutes at 325 degrees in a 9×12 baking pan.  Enjoy!
