there it is everyone.
A few of you wrote in and let me know that protein bars were expensive buys for you, but you wanted a protein packed snack on the go for your workouts. Now, I’m not a big fan of protein bars, since they often are high in sugars and are PROCESSED (yes, even healthy foods can be processed), but you can minimize those two things by making them at home.
These are an awesome pre-post workout snack. They’re about 150 calories each (roughly) and the recipe makes about 10 bars! Keep them refrigerated!
1. Combine splenda, cream cheese, protein, and cinnamon in a bowl and mix with an electric mixer on high til its smooth.
2. Add the oats and mix with the mixer until coated & even. If it’s too thick, add 1/4 cup of water/milk.
3. Spray an 8x8 pan with fat free cooking spray. Spread the mixture in the pan. Sprinkle some additional splenda (or any other sweetener - this is optional) on top and place in the fridge for an hour.
