Peanut Butter Protein Bars - Super healthy snack made with Peanut Butter, Steel Cut Oats, Flax Meal and Honey. So Good!
Peanut Butter Protein Bars are a chocolate-free twist on another yummy recipe, Chocolate Peanut Butter Protein Balls.
Ready to make this super tasty snack, super fast? We'll show you how. Here's what you'll need:
- 1 Cup Organic Steel Cut Oats
- 1 Cup Protein Powder
- 1 Cup Organic Peanut Butter
- ½ Cup Organic Flax Meal
- ½ Cup Organic Honey
- 1 Teaspoon Vanilla
- Food Processor
- Rubber Spatula
- Measuring Cups for dry ingredients
- Measuring Spoons
- Baker's Quarter Sheet
- Parchment Paper - 2 sheets
Step 1: Make the Dough
Place all ingredients into a food processor and pulse until smooth.
Step 2: Roll out the Dough
Line baker's sheet with parchment paper and dump dough out onto the paper. Then, place another sheet of parchment paper over the top and press the dough out flat. I use a little rolling pin or a tin can to do this.
Step 3: Cut the Dough into Bars
Make sure the dough is shaped into a neat, straight edged rectangle. Cut the dough cross-wise into 4 quarters. Score the top with marks to divide each quarter into 3 bars.
Once the dough is scored, make straight-lined cuts dividing the dough into 12 bars.
Step 4: Package them up!
One by one, individually wrap each bar in plastic wrap and store in a ziploc bag.
Peanut Butter Protein Bars are best stored in the freezer. Just toss the bag into the freezer and one take out to eat whenever you get the craving. My husband likes to take one to work with him every day for a late afternoon snack. So, I always have some on hand in the freezer!
