How To Make Your Own Protein Bars

Protein bars are awesome for convenient, on-the-go snacks … problem is, it’s hard to find ones that aren’t full of sugar and preservatives.  Here’s how to make your own at home (I didn’t come up with this recipe myself … I found it at liftforlife.com):

Mix:

  • 3 cups oats
  • 1 cup skim/1% milk
  • 4 scoops whey protein
  • 1/2 cup natural peanut butter
Mix the ingredients together (might take a few minutes); spread into baking dish (make sure to coat with non-stick cooking spray) and stick in the fridge overnight.  Cut into eight bars.
Nutritional info (per bar):
11g fat
26g carbs
21g protein
285 calories
Another bonus:  I actually added up the cost of the ingredients in this home-made protein bar recipe; it came out to 57 cents per bar.  So these bars are healthier and cheaper than their store-bought counterparts!
Enjoy!
