I am a HUGE protein girl! I love foods with protein, protein shake, and most of all protein bars.
I am obsessed with Quest bars! but let's be honest they are pretty expensive.
I haven't calculated prices out to make these but they HAVE to be cheaper and they taste like no bake cookies!!!!
Okay so I have done this two ways!
the first way is with natural peanut butter just from the store! if you do it this way it is harder more like a protein bar you'd buy...
the second way is with PB2. This way is a little more gooey but still really good just not as firm!
. Peanut Butter Protein Bars .
2 Cups peanut butter
1 3/4 Cups honey
2 1/4 Protein powder
3 Cups dried oatmeal
In a microwave safe bowl mix the peanut butter and honey for one min.
add protein and oats.
mix together and put in a 9x13 pan
put in the fridge to cool
(I like mine to look pretty so I take a piece of wax paper and put it over top then take a spatula and press them down till its even and smooth!)
a couple of tips and side notes to making these!
*go to sam's club to get your honey! it's the cheapest and you will go through it VERY fast with these bad boys!
*protein powder I used chocolate Carmel because thats what I had but it tastes AMAZING!
*Cut them before you refrigerate
*I just leave mine in the fridge all the time! I like mine cold.
I hope you love these as much as I do!
