Recipe Ingredients for Homade Protein Bars

5 tbsp Regular Creamy Peanut Butter
1/2 cup dry Old Fashioned Quaker Oats
1/2 cup Oat Flour
6 scoop Whey Protein Powder
1 tsp Vanilla Extract, Imitation, No Alcohol
2 tbsp Flaxseed Meal
3 1/5 oz Mix 'n Drink Instant Nonfat Dry Milk
12 almond Almonds
1/2 cup (8 fl oz) Water

Recipe Directions for Homade Protein Bars

  1. Spray an 8x8 baking dish with non-stick cooking spray. Combine dry ingredients in a medium size bowl and mix well. Add peanut butter and mix - the mixture will be crumbly and dry. Add water & vanilla. Using a wooden spoon or rubber spatula, everything until a dough forms. The dough will be sticky. Spread dough into pan using a clean wooden spoon or spatula that has been sprayed with non-stick cooking spray. Refrigerate a few hours (or freeze for an hour) and cut into 9 squares. Wrap bars individually (use sandwich bags or plastic wrap) or store in covered container between sheets of wax paper. Keep refrigerated.

  2. Modifications: Use vanilla protein and replace ~1/4 cup of the oatflour with a variety of nuts, seeds, or dried berries. Chopped almonds, hazelnuts, cashews, peanuts, flax seeds, sesame seeds, pumpkin seeds, raisins, or dried cranberries would all work well.

  3. * Making Oatmeal/Oat Flour: To make your own oat flour, all you need to do is put a cup or two of oatmeal in a regular household blender and blend it on high...it will turn into a flour. Store in a covered bowl in the pantry. It takes 1 minute and is VERY easy and cheap alternative to buying in the store.
