I’ve had a few people ask about the different protein bars I make to stay on track during the week. I would rather make my own bars than buy some of the ones with so many ingredients that I’ve never heard of! I make these bars every week for both me and my husband and even the boys will eat them on occasion! These are so easy to make!!
INGREDIENTS needed: Quick oats, peanut butter (I use JIF), honey, chia seeds and Shakeology (I use chocolate) or you could use any protein powder of choice.
I will sometimes double the recipe so I don’t have to make them EVERY week– just make sure to store them in the fridge after making them.
In a large bowl, add:
1/2 cup peanut butter & 1/4 cup honey
Melt in microwave for 1 minute
3 cups quick oats, 2 T chia seeds and a scoop of Shakeology
Mix and spread in a 9×13 pan. I always put them in the freezer for a good 30 minutes. Remove, cut into squares, put into baggies and store in the fridge for the week!!
I count each bar as 1 YELLOW
