Eating on the Go: Protein Bar Recipe

Since I have been working at night a couple of times a week with limited access to food I decided to make some protein bars that I can eat on the road and that won't cost me an arm and leg.

This is my first time trying this at home so I basically just followed the first result that Google gave me.  I picked the bar with the least ingredients/had all the ingredients that I have at home.

Here is the easy to follow recipe:

3 Cups of Rolled Oats

1/2 Cup Peanut Butter (Where the ingredients are only peanuts)

1 Cup Skim Milk

4 Scoops of Chocolate Whey Protein Isolate

Dash of Cinnamon (I didn't use this)


Start off by dumping the oats and 4 scoops of protein powder into a bowl


Then blend the peanut butter into the milk (I used the good old Magic Bullet)


Then just fold the peanut-milk into the oats until it is nice and evenly mixed.  This will be an intense arm workout, so blast through the pain!

When it starts to look edible you can scoop out a piece with you hands and mould it into bar form (or any form you like)


Wrap it up and store it in the freezer until you want to eat it.

I got 8 bars out of this recipe, should last me a couple of weeks as long as I don't eat them every day.

Extras that I may add next time:

-Chocolate Chips

-Flax Seeds

-Shredded Coconut

Anyone Else have any tasty ideas for quick meals or other foods that could be put into bar form?
