Homemade Protein Bars
I’ll be right up front with you, I can’t stand cooking. Luckily, my fiance is a great cook but there are still plenty of times where I am pressed into some kitchen action to help me meet my nutritional needs. Over the years I have learned many tricks to help culinary-challenged people like myself create easy-to-make healthy meals and snacks. Without question, Shakeology has become the easiest and healthiest of them all but this recipe for homemade protein bars is right up there too.
- 2 Cups of Quick Oats
- 2 Cups of Rolled Oats
- 1/4 Skim Milk
- 1/4 OJ
- 1/2 Cup of Organic Apple Sauce
- 3 Scoops of Whey Protein Powder (try different flavors)
- 1/2 Cup of Egg Whites
- 1/3 Cup of Honey
Mix ingredients in a 9X9 pan and bake at 400 degrees for 20 mintues.
Cut into 8 bars.
Nutritional breakdown per bar (approx.): 240 calories, 4 grams of fat, 37 carbs, 6 grams of sugar and 15 grams of protein
* For higher protein add another scoop of whey and another 1/4 cup of egg whites
Please note: These bars are not meant as a substitute for the P90X Performance Bars as they have very few simple carbs. These bars are designed more as a mid-day snack or a supplement to a meal.
