Adding more protein to your diet is helpful in building muscle as well as losing weight. Protein bars can be quite expensive so making them at home will save you money.This page contains recipes for homemade protein bars.
I did a web search and found this recipe. I have not tried these but they were marked with 5 stars.
1 mashed banana
1 1/2 cups dry oatmeal
2 Tbsp. flax seed, ground
2-4 scoops protein powder
1/4 cup peanut butter
1/4 cup shredded coconut
1/4 cup coconut oil or butter, melted
1/4 cup raisins
1/4 cup water
1 large chocolate bar (I used organic dark chocolate) or 1/2 cup chocolate chips
Mix all ingredients but chocolate together well (mixture will be somewhat sticky). Line an 8x8-inch pan with foil and spread the mixture evenly in the pan. Melt chocolate on the stove or in the microwave. Drizzle or spread over the mixture in the pan.
Place the pan in the freezer for at least 2 hours. Cut into 10 -12 bars and wrap in plastic wrap and/or foil and store in the freezer. Thaw slightly before serving.
1/10th of this recipe = approximately 260 calories and 11 to 13 grams of protein (depending upon how much protein powder you use, per Calorie Count.)
Rinse apricots, cover with water and boil 10 minutes. Drain, cool and snip. Mix softened butter with the 2 Tbsp. honey and 1 cup whole wheat flour, sifted. Pack into bottom of greased 8 inch square pan. Bake at 350 degrees F for 25 minutes. Sift remaining 1/3 cup flour with baking powder and salt. Beat honey into eggs, beating well after each addition. Stir in sifted flour mixture, flavoring, walnuts and chopped apricots. Spread over baked layer. Return to oven and bake 30 minutes more. Cool in pan and cut in squares.
