This is a recipe which I have been using for a couple of years now after discovering it in a magazine and everybody I have given a bar to has been hooked which is why I wanted to share this healthy, yummy protein bar recipe with all you awesome MEANPROTEIN subscribers.
PROTEIN BAR INGREDIENTS
70 grams of protein powder (I would recommend salted caramel from Bulk Powders which you will occasionally find in a MEANPROTEIN box or you can try a new flavour protein bar each time you receive a new box. Find out more here.
120 grams of rolled oats (these are thinner than normal oats).
1/4 tsp salt
125 grams of peanut butter
170 grams honey
1 tbsp mini chocolate chips (not essential)
HOW TO MAKE THE BEST PROTEIN BARS
Firstly mix together the oats, salt and protein powder in a mixing bowl.
Next, add the peanut butter and honey and stir until it's evenly mixed through.
Finally mix in the chocolate chips.
Then, line a baking tin or Pyrex square dish with greaseproof paper and place the mixture on top. Spread this evenly and make sure it's patted down.
Then, slice the mixture into eight bar-shaped chunks to make it easier to chop up once frozen.
Next, cover the bars with more greaseproof paper and put in the freezer for at least five hours or until solid.
Once frozen, get them out and my personal preference is to eat one once the protein bar has been out of the freezer for five minutes or so. This way, the bar isn't completely solid but it's texture is ever so slightly soft with a bit of a crunch to it.
These amazing homemade protein bars have 10 grams of protein per bar.
