Amount Per Serving
  • Calories: 197
  • Fat: 7.2 g
  • Carbs: 13.7 g
  • Protein: 21 g


1/2 cup dry oat meal or whole grain hot cereal (uncooked)
1/2 cup oat flour (double the dry oats if you do not have oat flour)
6 scoops chocolate whey protein (approximately 132 grams worth of low-carb protein powder)
1 teaspoon vanilla
2 tablespoons flax seeds (optional)
1 cup non-fat dry milk
1/2 cup water (depending on what type of protein you use, you may need to add more)
Modifications: Use vanilla protein and replace ~1/4 cup of the oatflour with a variety of nuts, seeds, or dried berries.

PREPARATION:

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. Sponsored Links

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.

Easy to put together and throw in the freezer. Now I realize why commercial protein bars have so much sugar. It's needed to make the bar taste good. Not sure if these bars are going to be palatable.

I definitely understand your comment,, but then again even though its a challenge to go from regular sweets to something far less sweet,,, you gradually get used to it and before long,,, regular foods begin to taste too sweet.


I agree.

Great recipe, thanks! Wondering, can anything be used in place of peanut/almond butter? Am not a huge fan. Agave syrup, perhaps?

A mate of mine made these and i found them delicious. Great protein snack for long strenuous rides on the bike for an energy kick. Just curious how long you can keep these in the fridge before they start to go off. Any ideas?...
