Peanut Butter Protein Bars

I'm a huge peanut butter fan, in fact it's one of my biggest weaknesses. I tried an awesome recipe that I got from here. They are yummy and great on the go, and my family loved them (added BONUS). Give them a try.

2 cups raw oats

4 scoops protein powder (vanilla or cookies and cream) The scoop I use is 4 Tablespoons per scoop.

1/2 cup plain fat free greek yogurt

2 TB *powdered peanut butter (I got mine from here).

cinnamon – to taste

liquid vanilla stevia or any natural sweetener – to taste


1. Add all ingredients into a mixing bowl.

2. Mix together.

3. Spray 9 x 9 glass dish with cooking spray and press mixure evenly into dish. Sprinkle cinnamon on top.

4. Place in freezer for 10 minutes to set up. Cut into 4 – 6 squares and put in individual baggies. I freeze mine, or you can put them in the fridge.

*Now, if you don’t have access to peanut butter powder, replace the peanut butter powder and greek yogurt with 1/2 cup natural peanut butter and 1/2 cup water. Directions stay the same except divide into 6 or 8 squares. If you want to try these out with your kids, add in some mini chocolate chips or carob chips – they won’t even know they are healthy!
