Makes one bar.
- 1 tbsp (15 g) peanut butter
- 1 scoop (44 g) Six Star whey protein powder (30 g protein!)
- 2 tbsp oats (ground with spice-grinder or blender into flour)
- 1.5 tbsp water (adjust as appropriate)
Stir together the ingredients in a bowl. Scoop the lump of dough out onto plastic wrap and mould it into bar form. Refrigerate it to further solidify.
Using Adam's peanut butter (100 Cal per tbsp): 315 Cal, 20 g carb, 11 g fat, 35 g protein, 2 g fibre, 3 g sugar
|cookies & cream|
Sometimes I cut the bars up into bite-sized pieces.
I've also made Chocolate-Vanilla Swirl Protein Bites by preparing two batches of the above dough, one batch with chocolate protein powder and the other with vanilla protein powder, taking a bit of each kind of dough, and rolling it into balls. This made 12 balls.
Per 1/12th: 53 Cal, 5.8 g protein
I'm not sure how well these resemble commercial protein bars; the whey protein taste is prominent (as expected) and the texture is a bit gummy, but overall I think they taste all right!
Do you buy protein powder? If so, what is your favourite way to use it?
