Oatmeal Raisin Protein Bars

Although there are many protein bars on the market, the majority of them are loaded with sugar, artificial sweeteners, dyes and preservatives.  Also, the average store-bought bar will run you somewhere around $3.00 a pop.

Here's a simple, cost-efficient recipe for some awesome oatmeal raisin protein bars, loaded with whey protein, fiber, complex carbohydrates and healthy fats.

What you will need:

(Dry Ingredients)
-3 cups of oats
-4 scoops of VANILLA protein powder - I use whey
-1/4 cup raw almonds
-1/4 cup raisins
-1/4 cup butter

(Wet Ingredients)
-1&1/4 cup of water
-1/4 cup of maple syrup
-1/4 cup of honey
-2 eggs

What you will do:
  1. preheat oven to 350 degrees Fahrenheit 
  2. melt butter and mix all dry ingredients in a large bowl
  3. in a separate bowl, mix all of the wet ingredients
  4. add the wet mixture to the dry mixture and stir until it's fully mixed
  5. grease a medium glass casserole dish with nonstick spray or some nonstick alternative
  6. add oatmeal mixture to the casserole dish, and spread evenly
  7. put in oven for roughly 15-20 minutes, or until lightly browned
  8. remove from oven and let rest for 10 minute (NO LESS!)
  9. cut into even bars, and ENJOY!
