Healthy homemade protein bars. Very easy and quick. You know what goes in the recipe! My kids love them! Better than store-bought bars and great for after a work-out or as an anytime snack. Store in covered container in the refrigerator.

  • Mix oats, flaxseed meal, raisins, cranberries, and protein powder together in a small bowl.

  • Combine chocolate chips, honey, and peanut butter together in a microwave-safe bowl; heat in microwave oven, stirring every 30 seconds, until the chocolate chips are nearly melted, 2 to 3 minutes.

  • Stir oats mixture with the chocolate mixture until evenly mixed; spread into prepared baking dish.

  • Refrigerate bars until hardened, 15 to 20 minutes. Remove bars from dish by lifting parchment; cut into squares using a pizza cutter.

Cook's Note:

Add nuts, coconut, different dried fruits, swap out the white chocolate chips for chocolate chips, swap out the flavor of protein powder... the variations are never ending!

I loved the flavor and that it's a simple no bake recipe. Versatile recipe where you can really add or substitute ingredients as you'd like. Definitely a recipe I'll use again and make double batches of. I admit I didn't use the protein powder...

Easy to make great snack! It was a little too sweet for me and maybe to much sugar for a low-sugar diet but nonetheless quite tasty!

I love this recipe. I double it and add a tablespoon of water at a time until it is a good consistency. I also substitute sun butter for the peanut butter. I cut them into bars and put into snack size zipper plastic bags. yum!

These are candy bars. As I was making them I became concerned about the protein to goodie ratio so i decided to double the protein powder and add 1/4 c water to soften it. Then after pressing in a square pan I let them set in the freezer 5 hours which gave them a nice shape when cut. Soft chewy delicious candy bars. Yielded 6 bars 15g protein each probably a ton of calories but very yummy. I'll definitely make them again but I'll cut back on the honey and chocolate chips.

This was a great recipe! I added some sunflower seeds chia seeds pine nuts and a bit more of both the peanut butter and oats. It turned out great! I would definitely recommend this to someone.

Very easy and very good. I am a T1D so I really like to make my own power bars or energy bars. I added craisins and slivered almonds should have added a little more honey. Overall will make again. Great recipe!
