Make your own protein bars! Pictured step by step!

Okay, so have you ever wanted to make your own protein bars? Well, Kayla has made it simple! She gave me a recipe that I know you will all love as much as I do!

You will need all things pictured above. The rough estimates are as follows:

1 1/2 cup Old Fashioned Oats

2 big scoops favorite protein powder (for my Aria protein, I use 3 small scoops)

1 tbsp. chia seeds

1/2 cup slivered almonds

2 tbsp. honey

1/3 cup favorite nut butter (Sunflower Seed is SO good for this recipe)

1/2-1 tsp. cinnamon

1/2 cup almond milk

First, put your 1 1/2 cup of oats into a mixing bowl

Then add your protein powder, cinnamon, and chia seeds!

Mix it all together!

Next, get your almonds toasting on the stove over medium heat (you don’t need to put any thing in the pan other than the almonds)

While you’re waiting for those to toast, get out a sauce pan and put two tbsp. of honey over medium heat

Then, once warm, add your 1/2-1/3 cup of nut butter (however much you’d like), and your 1/2 cup of almond milk.

After you have a smooth consistency, add in everything you’ve got mixed in the bowl

Stir together

Next, you’re going to get out a baking dish, line it with parchment paper, wax paper, or Pam (whatever you have), and flatten the mixture evenly throughout the whole dish

Fold the edges over, and stick in the fridge until you’re ready to enjoy an easily made protein bar, that you just made YOURSELF! Give it at least 45 minutes 🙂
