My client Kylee was sweet enough to bring Jon and I a batch of her delicious protein bars to class last night and they didn’t even make it home before the taste testing began! They are super tasty and have some seriously great macros! She found this recipe in Oxygen Magazine and we feel it’s a real winner (especially being so easy to whip up). Kid friendly too 🙂
No-Bake Protein Bars (makes 8 bars):
2 cups quick cooking oats
1/2 cup natural peanut butter (you could sub in a different nut butter here though)
4 scoops Bluestar Iso Smooth Vanilla Whey Protein (vegan can work too but macros and flavour will change, choose a different flavour to jazz it up like chocolate peanut butter for a chocolate-y version or cookies and cream for a sweater version!)
1 tsp ground flaxseed
1/2 cup of water
1) Combine and knead all ingredients in a medium sized bowl.
2) Line a square baking dish with parchment or wax paper. Press the dough into the dish using a spatula. Melt a little peanut butter and drizzle on top if you like (not included in macros) then freeze for at least 30mins. Take out and cut into 8 bars then store in an airtight container in the fridge or freeze to save them for longer!
