My Homemade protein bars definitely meet the above requirements. Healthy, fast, easy, and SO good! This isn’t just your average protein bar. This is dessert, snack, and healthy eating all in one! No added sugar makes it almost too good to be true. You’ll love these protein bars (or should I say No Bake Cookies?)
Homemade Protein Bars
2 1/2 cups peanut butter
3 cups oatmeal
2 cups honey
2 1/4 cups chocolate whey protein powder
1/4 cup wheat germ
1/4 cup almonds, chopped
Mix all ingredients (start with a spatula, but you might need to do the final mixing with your hands.) Press into bar pan (or cookie sheet with a 1-inch lip.) Consistency will be similar to No Bake Cookies. Slice to serve. (Can also form protein bars into balls.)
Tip: Slice them up into bars, freeze in the pan, then store them in a container in the freezer between pieces of parchment paper. This is how I have a healthy snack or treat at the ready. And they taste great when still partially frozen.
