A Simple, But Awesome, Homemade Protein Bar

Protein Bars.

Most of them are filled with crap, sugar alcohols, loads of artificial sweeteners, and stuff you couldn’t even pronounce. Now don’t get me wrong, there are some good ones out there, but I prefer to make my own.

The best part, these delicious bars only take 3 ingredients, and about 5 minutes to make.

1. Protein Powder.

I prefer a whey protein powder, chocolate flavor tastes best. I recommend Optimum Nutritition’s 100% Whey Protein.

2. Peanut Butter.

Again, I have a preference with peanut butter. Natural peanut butter is best. Yeah you know, the kind that has the oil on the top you have to stir before you eat.

3. Milk

Yeah, you guessed it. I have a preference on this one too. I like the taste of almond milk, plus its got a little extra protein.

After you have all 3 ingredients set aside, follow these instructions:

In a large mixing bowl, mix in 2 scoops of protein powder, a 1/2 cup of milk, and 3-4tbsp of peanut butter. This will create a paste type consistency. Mold them into 2×2 squares, wrap them, and put them in the freezer over night.

When you wake up in the morning, you have one of the simplest, best tasting, most amazing, natural, oh my goodness, protein bars ever.
