Homemade Protein Bars

I've been pretty consistent with working out over the past few months (starting towards the end of December). I must admit that I'm very proud of myself for sticking with it! I've had a week or two where I've taken time off for one reason or another, but unlike before I've found a way to get back on track each time. Go me!

The hubs, on the other hand, has always been very active.  However, seeing me working out consistently motivated him to spend a little more time in the gym lifting weights, instead of just playing basketball. Since he has such a fast metabolism, is always hungry, always eating and requires lots of protein, I figured he could use some whey protein.

I tried it and it's, well, disgusting! He had no problem mixing the chocolate with milk but we weren't sure how to use the vanilla in a way that it could be tolerated. But then my coworker shows up one day with some homemade protein bars. Perfect! Since I make a mean (read: excellent!) homemade granola bar I figured making protein bars would be easy peasy...

and guess what? It was!

...and we he liked them! #Score

Homemade Protein Bars
Prep Time: 15 min

Ingredients
1/2 Cup - Milk
1/4 Cup - Honey
1 Cup - Peanut Butter
1 1/3 Cup - Whey Protein (Vanilla)
2 Cups - Oats

Instructions
  • Melt/Mix the first three ingredients together on the stove (on low-medium heat).
  • Remove from heat and add in the the oats and protein.
  • Mix thoroughly then spread in a pan.
  • Let set in the fridge for at least an hour prior to cutting into bars.
Note:  I typically keep my bars refrigerated due to the peanut butter.  In my opinion they taste best if eaten within seven days; however, due to the ingredient list they can last for quite some time if kept refrigerated and even longer if frozen.

If you give the recipe a try let me know what you think. Tolerable or nah :)?!?

Happy Eating,
