Directions

  • Cook

  • Ready In

  1. Preheat oven to 350 degrees F (175 degrees C). Line a baking sheet with parchment.
  2. Spread oats out onto an unlined baking sheet in a thin layer, and toast until lightly browned, about 10 minutes; remove and allow to cool. Mix together the cooled oats, protein powder, whole wheat flour, and flax seed until thoroughly combined, and mix with peanut butter and honey. Mash the bananas into the mixture, and stir to combine. Press the dough down onto the parchment-lined baking sheet in a 1/2-inch layer.
  3. Bake in the preheated oven until the edges of the dough are golden brown, about 15 minutes; cut into bars while warm, and allow the bars to cool. Wrap bars in plastic wrap, and refrigerate until ready to use.

This is the first recipe I've used to make my own protein bars. I used 1 package (35g) of vanilla and 1 package of chocolate protein by Vega Sport, Naturally More Peanut Butter which is great as it already contains flax seed, honey and egg white, added some chopped walnuts, dried cranberries and other fruit and nuts from trailmix. I also added a bit more honey and heated it a bit with peanut butter to make it more liquid and easier to mix with dry ingredients. The bars turned out great (chewy!), I can't wait to take them on my next hike!

Very easy recipe and these protein bars turned out very good. I added 1T of vanilla and 1T of cocoa powder also to bump up some flavour since my protein powder is flavourless. Mine didn't turn out crumbly but they are crunchy. I may add some applesauce next time and see if I get a chewier bar. Overall, very good recipe for protein bars.

I made this recipe as written and doubled the honey as suggested by the author for a sweeter bar. They turned out great... moist, not too crumbly, and very tasty!
