As promised - a recipe for homemade protein bars! I made these tasty little treats yesterday and they seemed to be a hit today, so I feel like it's safe for me to share the recipe now. I'm not sure mine turned out quite a delicious as my friends did last week. She used dark brown sugar and I used light. Lesson learned.

Homemade Protein Bars
makes about 20 bars

1 cup peanut butter
1/2 cup dark brown sugar 
1/4 cup light agave syrup
1/2 cup unsweetened apple sauce
2 egg whites
1 1/4 cup wheat flour
1/2 tsp baking soda
2 tsp vanilla extract
3 cups old fashioned oats
1 cup dark chocolate chips
2 scoops chocolate protein powder
8 tbsp ground flax
1/2 cup chopped almonds

Preheat oven to 350 degrees.

Mix all ingredients together in a large bowl.

Spread and press mixture (evenly) onto a greased cookie sheet. Bake at 350 for 15 minutes. Allow pan to cool before cutting. Each bar has 10-12 grams of protein.

Enjoy! And pack extras if you take them anywhere outside of your kitchen. Your friends are going to want their own. Maybe two!

PS. Tomorrow I am going to tackle a homemade Toasted Coconut Mocha Frappuccino. It's all I wanted today and Starbucks probably won't have it until May. Wompity womp womp womp. 



This is Day 16 of 100 Days of Blogging.
