Almond Butter Protein Bars

When you’re on the run and need a snack to hold you over, there is nothing more convenient than a protein bar. The problem when most protein bars are they are often packed with everything except protein. With this almond butter protein bar recipe you’ll know exactly what’s in it, you’ll get the protein you want and save some money too! Total prep time is 5-10 minutes.

Ingredients (makes 9 – 12 bars)
1 jar (16 oz) almond butter (feel free to use peanut butter or sunflower butter)
3 – 4 cups dry Quaker oats
2 – 4 scoops Whey-Pro 5 protein
¼ cup or less of water (optional if bars are dry)

Directions
Mix all ingredients in a bowl then take the protein bar mix and spread evenly in a pan. Once evenly spread, press down evenly on the mix to get a consistent flat bar. Once the mix is spread evenly on a pan, cut the protein mix into squares and serve. Optionally, you can refrigerate to let the bars harden more then serve.
