Protein Connection easy protein recipes

I have come to do some in kitchen experimenting with protein bars. …first to save some money and second to control the ingredients to ensure nothing but the healthiest goes in to them.

I have found an awesome recipe..that easily converts into MANY varieties…based on YOUR favorites!!

The following recipe is doubled and easily makes at least 30 bars(of course will depend on the size)but if you want fewer bars ..of course cut the recipe..right down the middle!

Ingredients:

4 cups oatmeal

2 cups protein – chocolate

1/2 cup almonds

2/3 cups dried cranberries

1 tbsp cinnamon

mix above ingredients in a bowl

in another bowl that can be microwave..but the following in…microwave a min or 2 enough to slightly melt the chocolate chips, stir well.

1 cup peanut butter

1/2 cup honey

1/2 cup milk

1/2 cup apple sauce

1/2 cup chocolate chips

2 tsp vanilla

mix the dry into the wet mixture ..mix..and press into a large 9 x 12 baking dish (LINED with parchment paper. This step is very important as mixture is sticky!) Refrigerate for at least 20 minutes. cut and package individually for ease access and portability.

An awesome and very wholesome alternative from junk! grab one in the morning on the way to the Gym, for an afternoon break in the evening or for snack!
