These days, people often struggle to get the time to make healthy snacks and meals for when they are on the run. Not only is prep time a struggle, convenience and accessibility are also challenges. Portability as well as access to heating elements like microwaves tend to be hard to find sometimes when you’re outside your own home or office. However, these bars will help you overcome these obstacles. They are portable, keep well, and only take 5 minutes to make. To add more votes, the bars also taste great and are very inexpensive.
Follow the recipe below and if you feel like tweaking it to suit your tastes of the day, then go right ahead – the bars can also be altered in several ways to suit the flavor you prefer most!
For the protein powder, a person can include vanilla, chocolate or another flavor that they prefer. Dried fruit, oatmeal or small amounts of coconut can also be added for different flavors.
We must add too that these bars can be frozen, refrigerated or eaten right away. You have no reason not to try them now. See below for the original recipe:
- 1/2 banana mashed
- 6 Tbsp natural peanut butter (or almond butter)
- 1-2 scoops Protein Powder (Pea, soy or rice preferred)
- 1/3 cup ground flaxseed
- 1/2 – 2 Tbsp any milk
Makes roughly 5 bars.
