Ingredients

  • Whey Protein Powder, Chocolate, 6 scoops
  • Oats, 1 cup
  • Peanut Butter, Natural, 16 ounces
  • Honey, 8 tablespoons

Cooking Instructions

This bar is a great choice for muscle building and bulking, and can be used in between meals as a quick and easy high protein snack.

Combine the honey and peanut butter in a microwave safe bowl. Place this combination into a microwave and heat for 20 seconds. Stir and heat for an additional 20 seconds. Continue this pattern until the honey and peanut butter are soft enough to be mixed with the oats and whey.

Next, mix in the whey protein powder and oats. Spread this mixture into a 9x9 or 9x13 pan. You may want to lightly grease the pan, or line the bottom and sides with baking parchment paper.

Place the pan in your fridge for an hour. Remove, cut into desired squares, and enjoy!

Don't cook the oats. Either regular rolled or instant are fine. I use instant. I'm not sure how big the difference is but instant worked so why try anything else. I found what I need. The texture ends up like an oatmeal cookie.

This has become a staple in my house. We have to double the recipie and use a Pyrex 9x13x1 dish. My wife and children use these yummy bars as an inbetween snack or meal. We added 1/2 cup of raisins to the mixture. Excellent energy booster!!

Are the calories per bar or for all 8? Perhaps when you list recipes you could like the calorie, protein ect per bar/ meal so its easier for idiots like me to understand.

Thanks for this recipe. Whenever I get tired of looking for commercial bars that don't have artificial sweeteners or soy, I just make a batch of these and am good for a week.

I won't knock these too hard, because I've only tried it once and my ingredients weren't exactly the same as the recipe, but what I will say is that mine were not very nice. They came out very dry, even though I didn't use all the oats and protein powder mix. The taste is exactly what I would imagine peanut butter mixed with baby powder to taste like. They are edible, but not enjoyable.

One thing I'm learning about these healthy recipes is that when the terms "delicious", "tasty" or "yummy" are used, they are relative, and DO NOT necessarily mean that the product will be pleasing to the taste buds.

Anyway, its no secret that losing fat, building muscle and changing from an unhealthy lifestyle to a healthy one requires sacrifice, so Thanks for a SIMPLE, EASY TO MAKE protein bar alternative!

You can add bananas and raisins to moisten and eliminate the sugar from the honey also always use old fashion or organic oatmeal the quick oats are already cooked and dry. I also use non artificial flavored and non artificial sweetened protein the "normal vanilla and chocolate type use toxic ingredients to flavor and sweeten"
