Home Made Protein Bars

A wonderful woman from my boot camp brought in her home-made protein bars for us girls to try and they were darn tasty. She sent me the recipe over Facebook and today I had the time to make them!! These suckers are the perfect snack, they have protein in them to help keep your metabolism up, they are tasty with the peanut butter and vanilla protein powder. I know these will help me in the afternoons when I crave sweet things.

The recipe is as follows:

1 cup of rolled oats (I use Quaker)

1 cup of peanut butter (I used natural, because it has less fat)

1 cup of almonds (I only put in 1/4 of a cup)

1 cup of honey (I used organic)

3 scoops of vanilla protein powder

Put in the fridge for 45 minutes and cut into 16 bars. It is very important to cut into these many pieces, for if you make them larger they get closer to being a meal and less of a snack. Plus there is quite a bit of fat and protein in this. So please be careful with this!!

Here are pictures of my creation from earlier today:
