Recipe Ingredients for Homemade Protein Bars

1/4 c old fashioned oats
1/2 c oat flour
1/8 tsp table salt
1 1/2 tsp cinnamon
60 grams 100% Whey Gold Standard
1/2 c non-fat dry milk
1 1/2 tbsp ground flaxseeds
2 tbsp sunflower seeds
1/4 c peanut butter
2 tsp vanilla
1/4 c water
3 T honey
1/3 c almonds
1/3 c dried cranberries

Recipe Directions for Homemade Protein Bars

  1. Line an 8x8" dish with foil leaving a few inches of extra foil extending over edges of the dish. You will use this extra foil to grab onto when you remove the bars from the dish later on. Very lightly spray the foil with cooking spray.

  2. In a medium bowl, combine the oats, oat flour, salt, cinnamon, protein powder, dry milk powder, and seeds. In a small bowl, whisk together the peanut butter, vanilla, water, and honey. Microwave for about 45 seconds. Whisk then combine the liquid ingredients with the dry ingredients and stir to combine. The mixture will be quite thick. Add the nuts and dried fruit and stir to combine. Roughly spread the mixture into the foil-lined dish. Place a piece of plastic wrap directly on top of the "dough" and compress the mixture evenly in the dish. Leave the plastic wrap on and place in the fridge for an hour or until firm. After an hour, remove and discard the plastic wrap. Use the foil to lift the mixture out of the dish. Slide the mixture off of the foil and cut the block into 8 bars. Place the bars in a sealable container. Since this mixture contains no preservatives, I recommend keeping them refrigerated.
