No-Bake Protein Bars

1:25 PM

I love a simple protein bar to have for an on-the-go snack.. but I'm not always in love with the price. These are quick to throw together, and if you package them in parchment and a ziploc, you can throw them in your bag for post-workout or even a mid-errands snack.

I did choose to use a honey sunflower butter this time to change things up. This resulted in a softer, slightly gooey bar, but it was delicious.

1 cup Gluten-free Rolled oats
½ cup Vanilla or unflavored whey protein
6 tbsp Creamy Peanut Butter or favorite nut butter
4 tbsp Almond or Coconut milk
2 tbsp Honey
2 tbsp Ground Almonds (optional)

Optional toppings: 1 tsp each
Dried raspberries, cranberries, cherries, unsweetened coconut shreds.. Or even mini dark chocolate chips ;)

1. Toss all ingredients except raspberries into a bowl. Mix using your hands until you get a soft dough.
2. Press your dough into a bread pan lined with parchment paper.
3. Top with topping of choice, lightly pressing into dough. This is optional, but lovely.
4. Let it sit in the fridge a few hours, or even overnight. Slice into bars and enjoy!

I ended up with 8 bars, nutrition stands at: 100 cals per bar, 4.5 grams of fat, 7g of carbs, 7g of protein.
