No Bake Peanut Butter Protein Bars

Got a sweet tooth? Then try this recipe! I wrote it down awhile back and changed it a little bit. Hope you guys enjoy it!


What you will need:

  • 1 cup of uncooked oats
  • 1 cup of natural peanut butter
  • 1.5 cups of chocolate protein powder
  • 3 tablespoons of honey
  • 1 tablespoon cocoa powder
Optional:
  • Unsweetened coconut flakes
  • Almonds





First you need to put the peanut butter and honey into a mixing bowl and microwave for 30 seconds.




Then you will add the oats, protein powder, cocoa powder, and about 14 - 15 tablespoons of water.




Mix all the the ingredients until the "dough" looks like the picture below. You will think that you did something wrong or the it needs more water but it doesn't. It should be a little moist and kind of crumbly. (Optional: Add some almonds)




Place the mixture into a 9 x 9 dish.




Using your fingers press it down and even it out across the dish. You want to make it as firm as possible so put a little muscle into it! (Optional: Sprinkle some coconut flakes on top)




Place in the fridge for 30 minutes. Then remove and cut into any serving size you like. Keep in mind this is not a LOW CALORIE bar. The whole batch has roughly 2300 calories so cut the servings size accordingly. (9 pieces = 255 calories each, 12 Pieces = 191 calories each, 16 pieces = 143 calories each...... rough estimates.)




Enjoy!
