    I was wondering about making my own protein bars to avoid some of the "junk" that is put in the store bought ones. I was wondering if anybody had a good recipe for them. I searched quick but did not find anything.

    Thanks,
    Mike

    No-bake protein oat bars
    Ingredients:
    2 cups dry oatmeal
    4 scoops whey protein powder (vanilla or chocolate works best)
    ½ cup natural peanut butter
    1/3 cup of water or milk

    Directions:
    Mix all ingredients together in a bowl, and then press into a 9-by-9 inch pan lined with wax paper. Freeze for 40 minutes and cut into bars.

    I got this off of askmen.com

    Sounds pretty good, but do you need to keep them frozen or refridgerated? It sounds kinda risky to leave em at room temperature if one should decide to make it with milk.

    Hey There!!
    So how is this a protein bar? I'm a bit confused... do I add water for them to stick together? Also can I use two scoops instead of 4?

    Some of these look OK. Google is pretty cool. icon_razz.gif But yeah, I'd also be interested if anyone has any recipes they've actually tried and are good.

    I had the same question and googled it. I think it is natural peanut butter. Someone correct me if this is wrong.

    I just made them and put them in the freezer for a bit. They're very sticky and I added a few extra drops of water so that all of the powder would get incorporated. I'll probable stick them in the refridgerator after I cut them. I'm thinking about individually wrapping them so that I can grab them before I leave for the office. It'll make a great snack.

    I always make my own...

    4 cups of old fashion oats
    1/2 of natty p.
    milk..enough to make the mixture moist
    6 scoops of protein powder
    1cup of chopped nuts...I use almonds
    1/2 cup of dried cranberries
    1/3 cup of splenda

    I heat the milk and natty p. in the microwave first to melt it...then add dry ingredients...putting in the protein powder last...if the batter gets dry I add milk....press batter into a greased cake pan...and keep in refrig

    I make my own jerky to but it's a long process...ha...Enjoy....BUD
