Peanut Butter Protein Bars
Posted by Hoopers Challenge
I am always looking for healthy snacks and treats for my family and these little bars do just the trick! I first began making them, back when I promoted the Body by Vi Challenge. They were quick and easy, plus my boys LOVED them! Now that we are removing soy, whey and artificial sweeteners from our diets, I create these bars using the Essante ORGANICS 7.365pH Vanilla Shake Mix. And boy are they YUMMY to the Tummy!
Essante Protein Peanut Butter Bars:
1.5 Cups Nut Butter*
1/4 Cup Organic or Local Honey
3 Scoops Essante ORGANICS 7.365pH Vanilla (or Chocolate Shake if you want Chocolate PB Bars!)
3/4 Cup Uncooked 5 Grain Oats
1/4 Cup Steel Cut Oats
*I prefer to use the machines in the bulk section and make my own peanut butter
Mix Peanut Butter and Honey in microwaveable safe bowl and soften in microwave for 45 seconds or so, just long enough to be able to thoroughly mix. Add Essante ORGANICS Protein Shake Mix and remaining oats, one item at a time until mixed. Press on to a cookie sheet and form into a rectangle about 1/2″ thick. If needed, cover with wax paper and use rolling-pin to make smooth and even. Refrigerate 1 hr or until firm. Cut into 20 bars and refrigerate until ready to eat.
Feel free to modify these bars. You can easily add chopped nuts, coconut or dried fruit. Just reduce the oats and add your mix in’s!
