All Natural Homemade Protein Bars Recipe

Written by | Posted under Nutrition | 3 years ago

Lately, I’ve been on a quest to eat as much raw foods and as little processed foods as possible. I have found replacements for most of my foods, but one of the things I haven’t found a substitute for is the protein bar. Most protein bars you buy on the shelf are highly processed food products. Luckily, I found an awesome all natural protein bar recipe on reddit fitness that you can follow to create your own non-nonsense protein bar in your very own home. Here’s are the steps in writing so that you guys can print it out and bring it into the kitchen.

Ingredients

  • 70g peanut butter
  • 180g whey protein powder
  • 90g rolled oats
  • 30g ground flaxseed
  • 20g maple syrup
  • 30g whole almonds
  • 150ml-200ml of water

Lazy Man’s Tips

Since you have to keep this protein bar in the fridge anyway, it might make sense for you to skip steps 4 through 6 and just keep the mixture in a bowl in the fridge. Whenever you need a protein boost, just walk by the fridge, grab a spoonful of the mixture and you should be good to go. BAM!

    Is it possible for you to convert the ingredients to cups for us North Americans?

    The liquid measurement isn’t a problem but the “grams” measurements….not sure if it’s by weight or volume and I dont want to screw up the recipe. Thanks!
