Oatmeal Peanut Butter Protein Bars
These protein bars area a great no-bake, easy to fix recipe that’s great to eat when on the go. I love to make these so I have them to grab when I’m in a hurry. They contain loads of protein to keep you feeling full and to feed those muscles, as well as oatmeal as a complex carbohydrate to give you lots of energy.
2 cups of plain uncooked oatmeal
1/2 cup natural peanut butter (I love freshly ground)
1 tbsp ground flaxseeds
4 scoops of protein powder (I used 2 scoops of ON natural vanilla whey and 2 scoops of ON vanilla casein protein)
1/2 cup water
Mix all the ingredients together in a mixing bowl.
Spray a square baking dish with olive oil or use parchment paper to keep bars from sticking to bottom of the dish.
Scoop protein mix into baking dish and smash it down into dish making the bars even.
Freeze for 30 minutes. Remove and cut into bars.
