Here are the home made no bake protein bars I made on the weekend (yes, I did take these pictures).
They are so yummy and perfect to keep in your fridge or freezer for a meal on the go!
The recipe is care of my good friend Rina - thanks for the recipe beautiful!
Here is what you need:
-2 cups of quick oats
-1/2 cup of natural peanut butter or almond butter (I did almond butter)
-4 scoops of protein powder, chocolate or vanilla (I did chocolate)
-1 Tbsp of Flax
-1/4 cup of water
-1 Tbsp of cocoa powder
-1/4 cup of coconut
-1/4 cup of cranberries or raisins (I did cranberries)
-1/2 cup of dark chocolate chips
-Honey to drizzle
-Line a loaf pan with parchment paper.
-Using clean hands, kneed all the ingredients together in a large bowl. I found I needed more water than the 1/4 cup, but I would only add a tiny bit at a time because adding too much is worse than not enough.
-Spread the dough on the parchment paper. Use a spatula to evenly spread it out and make it as thick as a usual granola bar.
-Freeze for 30 minutes, or what I did was freeze it over night so I could eat one for breakfast.
-Cut into bars and drizzle a tiny bit of honey on them. Perfection!
Tip: They are really good with coffee!
