I am always looking for ways to be creative with cooking/baking. As I’ve been eating more meals throughout the day, I’ve needed more snacks. One snack that I’ve latched onto a bit have been protein bars.
I have been trying to get away from foods that have a lot of ingredients in them. The Protein bars that I buy at the store seem to have a lot, so while I still buy them occasionally (because they are very portable), I have moved more towards homemade bars or Lara Bars (which have fewer ingredients and are more of a snack bar rather than a protein bar).
Below is a recipe that I love:
3 Cups Oatmeal
vanilla fat free pudding (cheesecake flavor)
1/4 cup peanut butter
8 scoops protein powder
2 cups milk
– Mix all of these together, put in 9×12 pan.
– After 4 hours, flip it so that the bottom will get hard too.
– Freeze for 4 more hours and then cut them up.
This recipe has made about 10 bars for me of a pretty decent size. Each bar is usually around 200 – 250 calories.
