Peanut Butter Protein Bars
-1/3 cup of honey (or honey substitute...aqave nectar for instance)
-1/3 cup of dark brown sugar
-1.5 cups of peanut butter (I used creamy - my fav!)
-1 teaspoon cinnamon
-5 cups of bran flakes (I used Raisin Bran - I love me some raisins!)
-1/3 cup of ground flaxseeds
-1-2 scoops of protein powder
-1 cup of craisins
1- Add honey (or honey substitute) to a large pot on medium heat.
2- Add the dark brown sugar until it melts into the honey.
3- When honey & dark brown sugar mixture is bubbling, add cinnamon.
4- Once the cinnamon is completely dissolved, stir in peanut butter until mixture is smooth and creamy.
6- Put mixture in a casserole dish or pan. (I used an 8x8 - mixture fit in perfectly!)
7- Refrigerate for (at minimum) a few hours.
8- Once mixture is hardened, cut into pieces.
These look amazing! Must print!ReplyDelete
Those look really good. What kind of protein powder did you use? I bought vanilla flavored at Trader JOe's recently and it was really gross. I couldn't eat it mixed w/ ice cream or oatmeal. Is there one that has no taste?ReplyDelete
Should I start drooling when I read the recipe for protein bars? Hmm, likely a better choice than my current store bought, sugar filled, I-woke-up-late-and-didn't-eat-breakfast bars!ReplyDelete
