Saran's Protein Bars
This recipe only takes 5 minutes to prepare and it serves 4. You can also double all of the ingredients to make more.
4 scoops of whey protein
2/3 cup flax meal
4 tablespoons chunky natural peanut butter
1/4 cup water
a dash or raw sugar to taste
Mix everything together in a large bowl and start stirring. It may seem like it's not enough water, but continue stirring, it will eventually become a big, sticky chunk of dough.
If you have to, add water, 1 tablespoon at a time. Divide the mixture in four equal portions, and put them into separate pieces of plastic wrap, shaping into a bar within the wrap.
Put the bars into the refrigerator, or store them in the freezer. You can eat them chilled, or even frozen-- or you can eat them right out of the bowl instantly- but before you do that, divide the portions evenly! Each bar contains roughly 280 calories, 30 g of protein, 6 g of fiber and 2 g of sugar. It also packs a good dose of healthy fats from the flax seed mix! You can't go wrong with these bars! But like any supplement, nothing should replace whole food.
