recipe | Peanut Butter Protein No Bake Bars

This recipe was the runner up in a bake off challenge for the Facebook Group “Recipes for Gals in Figure and Bodybuilding”

No Cravings, No Bake Protein Squares (By Lisa Rousseau)

Makes 20 (approx 30g each)

Ingredients

  • 4 scoops vanilla protein powder
  • 2 cups quick cooking oats (I used Old Fashioned)
  • 1/2 cup natural peanut butter
  • 1 TBSP ground flaxseed
  • 1/2 cup water

Directions

Mix all ingredients and spread into an 8″ x 8″ wax-paper-lined pan.  Freeze for 30 minutes. Cut into bars.

Nutrition Facts (approx 30 g per serving…use your food scale to weigh each serving and package once frozen.  Exact facts will vary based on the exact ingredients you use, i.e. peanut butter brand)

  • Calories  96
  • Total Fat  4.38g
  • Sodium  49.53 mg
  • Total Carbohydrates  7.58g
  • Dietary Fiber  1.55g
  • Sugars  0.4g
  • Protein  6.5g

I divide all of our snack foods into individual portions.  See below. I weighed each bar to approx 30g each on my food scale and bagged them. Then I put all the baggies into a tupperware to stack nicely in the fridge.   Now, when it’s time for a snack, we know that 1 bar is approx 100 calories and if we decide to go back for more, we know exactly what we’re eating.  Most of us underestimate how much we eat during the day….if you’re underestimating at each meal…that can add up throughout the day!

*** I think I’ll add raisins next time I make these. It will add more sugar, carbs and calories, but will taste amazing! ***

Lindsay - These sound yummy, I think I am going to substitute chocolate protein powder…

tori - I need to make these again just to take better pics! These pics suck! 🙂 Let me know how they turn out!!
