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):
- 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):
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!
