I think I finally found the perfect homemade protein bar mix. In my past attempts I tried to make non-baked Shakeology Protein Bars, but they were always too goey and messy. So I removed the Almond milk from the mix and just used a little bit of water to help mix the ingredients. Made my first batch last night and I got a overall vote of approval from the Insanity Fit Club crew this morning.
- 4 cups Rolled Oats
- 1 cup water
- 3 scoops Chocolate Shakeology (Yes I’m partial to Shakeology. You can use any Chocolate Protein powder, but there is no comparison to Shakeology. Also research the alternative protein powder and see if it’s on the hit list for those main brand name protein powders that contain an alarming amount of heavy metals and other junk.
- 1 scoop Vanilla Vegan Protein (Sun Warrior is a brand you can trust, next to Shakeology).
- 4 tbsp Organic Peanut Butter
- 4 tbsp Raw Organic Honey
Just mix the protein powders, Shakeology and rolled oats first. Add the water, PB, honey and the mixing will get harder but keep at it. I do like bits of PB to be staggered around, so don’t feel it has to be a perfect mix. But I’m weird that way. Now take an ice cream scooper and stuff it with the mix, and drop on wax paper. Place and store in the refrigerator for a few hours and they should firm up nicely.
Now you have a great protein treat that is easy to take anywhere and won’t get messy. Best yet, you control the ingredients and these non baked versions will beat the pants off anything you can buy off the shelf.
