This week for our recipe of the week I will be sharing a personal favorite snack of mine, the No Bake Protein Bar.

It only takes about 10 minutes of your time and then you will have about 10 protein bars that you personally vouch for the ingredients yourself.

Ingredients:

1 cup oat flour (I just grind up oats in a food processor)

1  cup steel-cut oats

2-4 scoops whey protein powder (more scoops  = more protein, just make sure you know how your body will react to your brand and how much protein powder)

2 Tbsp melted grass-fed butter

1/3 cup raw honey

4 Tbsp almond butter

3-4 Tbsp of skim milk (any kind of milk would work)

 

Steps:

1) Combine all dry ingredients in a large mixing bowl mixing everything together

2) Slowly add the milk 1 Tbsp at a time, stirring as you go (dough should be sticky and stiff) *You shouldn’t need more than 5 Tbsp  of milk*

3) Get and 8×8 pan lined in parchment paper and press the dough into the pan making them as even as possible

4) Cover the pan and place in the fridge for at least 3 hours, I recommend letting them stay in there overnight

5) Cut the bars into 10 equal pieces and wrap/cover up individually; you can leave them in the fridge and eat them quickly or place some in the freezer and eat them on the go directly out of the freezer as you need

 

Nutrition:

Since some of the ingredients and amounts are a personal preference, it can vary slightly. Using 4 scoops of whey protein, and 4 Tbsp of skim milk the facts are:

Calories: 285
