The Better No-Bake Protein Bar
Why I Love This Recipe
Anything you can make from real ingredients is a lot better than those ingredient lists you read but don't understand. Now there are some pretty tasty protein bars on the market that are great - however, if you have a few free minutes why not make your own? These are a great, quick snack that I eat frequently during my workday when I don't have much time to eat anything but I need something to carry me over a few hours.
Ingredients You'll Need
1 cup oat flour
2 big scoops of protein powder (vanilla or chocolate)
1 cup of rice chex cereal
2 TBSP chia seeds
1/2 cup peanut butter
1/4 cup almond milk
3 TBSP honey
3-4 TBSP dark chocolate
Combine oat flour, protein powder, chex cereal and chia seeds in a bowl.
In a microwave safe bowl combine peanut butter, milk, and honey.
Microwave for 30 sec, stir and microwave for 15-30 sec more.
Add liquid mixture into dry ingredients.
Mix together until crumbly, if all dry ingredients are not moist add 1-2 more TBSP of almond milk.
Press mixture into 8"x8" or 9"x9" pan using parchment or wax paper (I use my pyrex pan with plastic lid - this is easy then for storage later on).
Melt chocolate and spread over bars.
Freeze for 20 minutes.
Cut into 8 bars.
Store bars in fridge or freezer.
