No-Bake Chocolate Oatmeal Protein Bars, American

This Month's Healthy Recipe, brought to us by .

  • 5 tablespoons natural peanut butter (chunky or smooth)
  • 1/2 cup dry oatmeal or whole grain hot cereal (uncooked)
  • 1/2 cup oat flour (double the dry oats if you do not have oat flour)
  • 6 scoops Smooth Natural Chocolate Whey Protein powder
  • 1 teaspoon vanilla
  • 2 tablespoons flax seeds (optional)
  • 1 cup powdered dry milk
  • 1/2 cup water (adjust as necessary to get the appropriate dough consistency)
Preparation Instructions

Spray an 8x8 baking dish with non-stick cooking spray. Combine dry ingredients in a medium size bowl and mix well. Add peanut butter and mix - the mixture will be crumbly and dry. Add water & vanilla. Using a wooden spoon or rubber spatula, mix everything until a dough forms. The dough will be sticky. Spread dough into pan using a clean wooden spoon or spatula that has been sprayed with non-stick cooking spray. Refrigerate a few hours (or freeze for an hour) and cut into 9 squares. Wrap bars individually (use sandwich bags or plastic wrap) or store in covered container between sheets of wax paper. Keep refrigerated.
