i subscribe to Maximum Fitness. by far, the best magazine reading, in addition to Fitness Rx for men and REPS!
anyhow. they have a recipe for a protein bar that i've had one of currently. and um. god damn its good. it says you can make 10 servings from the bag, but im lazy and i went with 8. but anyhow. the recipe is simple, cheap and takes about 10 minutes to make, with 2 hours 'frig time'
1 cup uncooked oats
6 scoops of protein powder
1 cup dry non-fat milk powder
5 Tbsp natural peanut butter
1 tsp vanilla
1/2 cup water
aiight. combine the oats, powders into a mixing bowl, just to get em even. then add the peanut butter. mix until its all still kinda dry but there's an even dispersion of everything. add the vanilla, mix, add water, keep mixing until the water is pretty even. by now, its like a soft clay. i was using my hands to mix, kinda fun at the same time, but im a child when i wanna be
put it into a greased 8"x8" pan, let it sit for 2 hours (or overnight like i did) cut into 8 bars. BAM you be done.
now you can make different 'flavors' by changing your protein powder flavor, i suggest chocolate cuz, um, yum. but this also allows you to change your protein amounts, aka soy protein powder one time, muscle milk powder another. but their cheaper than purchase protein bars, fun to make and last in cold or hot so no more chocolate melting mess.
and that, is my two cents, or three. who knows, i might have a whole freaking nickel of info up in this bitch.
