Easy Protein Bars

Rated as 4 out of 5 Stars

"I love these protein bars! They are quick, easy and cheap. They come out a little soft, but if you freeze them you get a more bar-like consistency. Tastes so much better than the chalky protein bars you buy for $3!"

  1. Preheat oven to 350 degrees F (175 degrees C). Line an 8-inch square baking dish with baking parchment.
  2. Spread oats onto a baking sheet and toast in preheated oven until lightly browned, about 10 minutes.
  3. Stir milk, peanut butter, almond butter, and honey together in a saucepan over medium-low heat; cook, stirring regularly, until the nut butters are melted and the mixture is smooth, 2 to 3 minutes. Mash bananas into the milk mixture and cook until smooth, 2 to 3 minutes more.
  4. Remove saucepan from heat and stir toasted oats, protein powder, flaxseed, and sesame seeds into wet ingredients until the mixture is somewhat even; spread into the prepared baking dish.
  5. Bake in preheated oven until lightly browned, about 10 minutes.
  6. Cool bars completely before cutting, wrapping in plastic, and storing in the refrigerator.


  • Cook's Note:
  • Cut into squares or rectangles.
  • Wrap individually -- I use sandwich baggies -- and store in refrigerator or freezer.
  • You can cool these from the oven in your refrigerator or freezer, if you prefer.

Made this and it turned out well. I added two tbsp honey, used chocolate protein powder instead of vanilla and doubled the ground flax because I didn’t have any sesame. I suppose I could have us...

I would give these 2.5 stars, but I think I might've screwed my chances at success by using half vanilla protein powder with a mix of BCAA powder (super bitter) and hemp protein. Next time, I'd ...
