Snow Day #2

It's still cold.


I made homemade protein bars last night.  Yum!
I'm still working on perfecting the recipe, 
but here's what I have so far....

Jenn's Running Protein Bars

  • 1 cup creamy peanut butter
  • 1/2 cup (heaping) honey*
  • 1 1/4 cups protein powder** 
  • 1 1/3 cups quick oats
  • 2 Tbsp. flax seed
  • Microwave honey and peanut butter in a microwave-safe bowl for about a minute. 
  • Stir well and add protein powder and oats until well blended.  
  • Add flax seed and stir well.
  • Mix might be kind of crumbly.  
  • Pour mixture into a lightly pammed 8x8 pan and pack mix down. 
  • Chill for about an hour and cut into bars.  
  • I get about 25-30 bars out of this recipe.  They are small, but are rich and filling.
  • These freeze well!
* The honey (glucose) will be burned off quickly during a workout.
** I combine vanilla and chocolate protein powder.  Banana is great too!

Sure! It's a work in progress though.
I am going to try it with agave nectar soon. Mmm....
