The Butterscotch Oatmeal Power Bars were such a hit that I immediately experimenting on the next homemade no bake energy bar. A batch of power bars has become part of the weekly food prep routine around here. I love mixing them up and best of all, the whole process takes less than 10 minutes, from pantry to chilling in the fridge! I have found the power bars as an excellent post workout snack. The combination of protein, healthy fats and carbs satisfies me and gives energy to conquer the next task.
I am also thinking the combinations are endless! Stay tuned for more power bar recipes to come!
2 ½ cup Old Fashioned (GF) Oats
½ cup natural peanut butter
2 scoops protein powder
1 Tbsp local honey
¼ cup mini chocolate chips
½ cup almond milk
Add all the ingredients into a large mixing bowl and stir together
thoroughly. Spray the bottom of a 9×4 with non-stick spray and press
mixture into pan. Refrigerate for a couple hours and cut into squares.
Put a plastic baggie over your hand to press mixture into pan. This will keep the dough from sticking to your fingers and allow you to firmly pack the bars.
