Simple Protein Bars

Here is a really simple protein bar recipe that is easy to make, tasty & stretches your protein powder further.

The credit here is due to Justin of 70sbig who wrote a post about a protein batter snack. I just figured that I'm going to make bars of them.

Ingredients:

Method:

Spoon out the contents of a tub of peanut butter.

Add the knob of butter.

Microwave for a minute.

Mix the warm peanut butter & butter together, it should be a soupy consistency.

Now add the dry ingredients. Cinnamon.

Creatine.

More Creatine.

Strawberry flavoured protein powder.

Mix the dry ingredients until you get a thick paste, it should have the consistency and mould-ability of dough.

Line a tray with tinfoil & pack your mixture in tight.

Now let your mixture cool & set. Put it in the fridge or freezer; it wont take very long, 10-30 minutes.

I split this mixture into 5 bars, you can divvy it up any way you like.

Macros:

You can add whatever you like to the key ingredients depending on your taste. Melt some dark chocolate and ground Brazil nuts on top, dried fruit, oats etc. For up/down-scaling the mixture, the basic principles are: 1 x 30g scoop of protein per 100g of peanut butter, butter x 10% of the peanut butters weight.
