Homemade Protein Bar Recipe

Eating snacks during the day can help control hunger levels preventing overeating at meal times or later in the day.
Making sure to eat small amounts during the day (every 3-4 hours). Just like a machine we need to fuel our bodies in order for them to burn/run efficiently.

Try these homemade protein bars as snacks or for a quick breakfast on the go. Be creative and mix up the recipe a bit. Let me know what you think and what new recipes you developed.

Homemade Protein Bar Recipe:
3 Cups Oatmeal ( Any variety, I used an apple cinnamon one that was good)
1/2 Cup Natural Peanut butter (Look for a PB without hydrogenated oils)
1 cup Skim Milk
4 Scoops Protein Powder (Whey protein is always a good choice)
Dash of cinnamon
Mix until a sticky batter is formed (may take a few minutes)
Spread into the bottom of a Pam-sprayed glass or metal cooking tray (spread until even)
Top/drizzle with sweetener of choice (stevia, agave, honey)
Refrigerate overnight and cut into bars
