Anyone have a good recipe for homemade protein bars?
heybreaux saidOh wow, my recipe is very similar.
1 cup of chocolate flavor protein powder*
1/2 cup of rolled oats
1. tblsp. pumpkin seeds
1. tblsp. sunflower seeds
1. tblsp. cocoa powder
1/4 cup almond butter
I ripe banana (mashed)
Put all in bowl and mash together with hands. Or put in small food processor.
chill for an hour. You can split it into 4 and make four bars, but I would suggest rolling in coconut (or the flax if you wish--flax will reduce sat fat, but add to overall fat--maybe choose if you need Omegas)
14.5 g fat [1.6 sat.]
36 mg cholest.
5.2 g fiber
5.9 g sugar
47.8 g protein
Chocolate Protein Balls - Much easier to manage
Scoop out with spoon and roll about 1 inch balls. Makes about 8-10 balls/ into 5 servings.
Depending upon the size of the balls (based on 10) Serving size = 2 balls.
10.9 g fat [0.7 sat.]
28.8 mg cholest.
4 g fiber
4.6 g sugar
