I finally perfected a “No Bake” Energy Protein Bar recipe that I am willing to share with all of you! I’ll admit, they don’t look like much but they are quite tasty and very filling!
Finally, a recipe that is delicious and good for you too! Kid approved! YAY!!! Mission accomplished!
No Bake Energy Protein Bars Recipe
1 cup dry (non cooked) oatmeal. I used quick oats
2/3 cup coconut flakes
1 cup peanut butter
1/2 cup ground flaxseed
1/2 cup sunflower seeds (optional)
1/2 cup chocolate chips (I used the mini’s)
1/3 cup honey
1 tsp vanilla
3 scoops of Powdered protein (I used this exact ice cream flavor because it doesn’t have a weird after taste or gritty taste. I really does taste like a vanilla ice cream treat but without the fat and sugar!)
You can omit the chocolate chips and add cranberries, blueberries, apricots, dates, raisins or any other type of dried fruit combo you prefer. You can also switch out the sunflower seeds and add nuts too! I plan to make my next batch with Cashews! You can use any kind of peanut butter or even substitute that for Almond butter too.
Combine all the ingredients above in a medium bowl. I found it easier to mix it with my hands. Press into a pan and chill for at least 30 minutes. Voila! That’s it!
Tip: Don’t double this recipe. It makes it really hard to mix (I speak from experience).
