PB Protein FUEL Bars

If you're anything like me... when 2-3 o'clock rolls around, you get the midday munchies. As someone who has a MAJOR sweet tooth, it can be a challenge to find something that satisfies that craving AND is good for me... which is why I am OBSESSED with these homemade granola bars. 

Made with all natural ingredients, these FUEL bars (I like to call them) are full of protein and fiber, and give me the energy I need to make it through the rest of the work day! Check out the (SUPER EASY) recipe below and try them for yourself!!

Ingredients

  • 4 cups oats, any variety
  • ½ cup Powdered Peanut Butter (I use PB Fit)
  • 1 cup unsweetened shredded coconut
  • 1 cup dried cranberries
  • ½ cup pumpkin seeds
  • ¼ cup chia seeds
  • 1 ¾ cups raw almonds
  • ½ cup Vanilla Protein Powder
  • 1 cup agave nectar or honey
  • 1 cup coconut oil, melted
  • 2 tsp. vanilla extract
  • 1 tsp. sea salt

HOW TO MAKE THEM!

  1. In a large bowl, combine PB Powder with oats, shredded coconut, pumpkin seeds, dried cranberries, and chia seeds.
  2. In a food processor, combine protein powder, almonds, agave/honey, coconut oil, vanilla and salt. Blend until smooth.
  3. Combine wet and dry ingredients and mix well. 
  4. Spread mixture into a lined pan (I use 13 x 9). Cover the top with wax paper and press to compact. Refrigerate for at least 30 minutes and then cut into small bars (Makes roughly 25)
  5. Eat and Enjoy!
