Protein Bars-No Bake Recipe

6 Jul

Hello!  So I have heard there have been some requests for the protein bar recipe I use at home.  There are many variations that can be made but I have found this one to be the easiest and tastiest.

What you will need:

Large sauce pan

9 x 13 baking pan (better to use a tin pan than a glass pan)

spatula

measuring cup

Wooden cooking spoon for mixing the ingredients together

frosting type knife for spreading the mixture in the pan

tin foil or clear wrap

Ingredients:

1 cup of honey

1 cup of organic peanut butter

1 cup of granola (you can use any kind you want- I usually use a basic granola from the bulk section at Winco and sometimes I use the vanilla cranberry kind) watch it though because you don’t want to add unnecessary sugar or carbs.

1 cup of old fashioned oats- the cup must be blended in a blender or food processor to make a finer powder type consistency.

2-3 scoops of Vanilla Protein Powder- Right now I use Elite Protein Powder for all my cooking recipes.

Pam- cooking spray

What to do:

Helpful hint- it is important to have all your ingredients measured and ready to go because once you get started it goes fast!

Spray a light mist of the Pam cooking spray all around the pan.

Over medium heat, melt together the honey and organic peanut butter.

Once the honey and peanut butter are melted and mixed together add the grounded up oats- mix in completely.

Add the protein powder and mix in.

Add the granola and mix in.

Should be the consistency of gooey dough that is sticky too.

Poor the mixture into the 9 x 13 pan and smash down into the pan. Use the spatula to help with this process.

Once you get it all smoothed out evenly, cover it with clear wrap or tin foil and put in the fridge.

Let them cool and set in the fridge for an hour.

Time to cut! Take a knife and run it along all the edges to help loosen the mixture from the sides of the pan.  Then turn the pan upside down and push on the bottom until the whole molded sheet of the protein bar comes out.

Cut with a knife 3 sections for the length of the mold and then evenly down the sides 3 cuts (pieces should be about 2″width x 4″ length).  You should get about 9-12 bars out of one pan depending on how you cut them.  Wrap individually in clear wrap or tin foil and store in the fridge.  Before eating one, you can let it sit for a couple of minutes to be softer and chewier but they are great cold as well.

Any questions, please let me know!
