Homemade Protein Bars
2 cups quick oats
1/2 cup of natural peanut butter or almond butter
3-4 scoops of protein powder (whatever flavor you like) I used vanilla.
1 tbsp. ground flaxseeds
1/2 cup of water
*You can also add or substitute the above with pumpkin, almonds, pecans, walnuts, dark chocolate chips, dates, dried cranberries, dried cherries, dried blueberries, and/or raisins.
Mix all of the ingredients together (the mixture should be the consistency of cookie dough).
Place wax paper on top of a casserole dish or plastic container that is shallow, and spread the mixture into the container. Freeze for about 30 minutes then cut into bars or squares. I keep mine refrigerated after that. This recipe makes about 8 bars.
