OK, I’ve just had a go at making some home made protein bars. As anyone will tell you exercise is just a part of the plan, you also need correct nutrition as well.
Rather than buying protein bars loaded with sugar and other rubbish I had a go at these myself. I did not focus on neatness of bar, as can be seen from the picture but to me they taste good. This first bar is a very basic minimal ingredients bar, its the very thin one at the top of the tin.
100g egg whites
1 scoop chocolate whey protein
1 cup oats
1 teaspoon of stevia powder (trevia brand) optional, just makes them a bit sweeter
Pre-heat oven to 200 c
Mix all of the ingredients up, I used a food processor for ease of use
Pour mixture into a greased baking tray/cake tin
Bake for 22-25 minutes
I mixed the ingredients so my mixture was very sticky and not dry. You can adapt on the go, too dry add some more egg whites, too liquidy add a little oats.
In an earlier recipe, I made some basic protein bars. This one ramps it up a bit, adds a few more ingredients but is still easy to make
Here’s a few pics, as stated earlier neatness of bar wasn’t a priority, I’ll leave that to folks selling those expensive bought bars.
Lets crack on
30g Chocolate Whey powder
2 Tablespoons of peanut butter
3 Egg whites
1 Tablespoon honey
100ml Skimmed milk
1 teaspoon of cinnamon powder
Pre heat the oven to 180 C
Firstly add the Oats/Whey powder and the cinnamon and mix together
Now add the peanut butter and mix this in, I use a food processor for this.
Now add the egg white, honey and 100ml of skimmed milk and mix well.
Now grease a cake tin or equivalent and spoon your mixture in evenly
Place in the oven for 15-20 minutes
Remove from oven, cool and cut into bars and enjoy
There you go, easy. You can use different flavour of whey powder or add banana’s as examples of adaptations.
Fresh, home made bars taste so good you’ll never buy one again.
