Homemade Protein Bars

It’s yesterday, right before I’m heading out for a grocery run.

My wife asks me to grab protein bars at the store.

But I said, “How about we whip up some homemade ones for this week instead? Healthier, simpler, and won’t break the bank!”

Our recipe rundown:

  • Mix 2 cups oats ($1.00), 1 scoop chocolate protein powder ($1.00), 2 tbsp peanut butter ($0.25), 1 mashed banana ($0.25), and 1 cup water.
  • Shape into bars.
  • Chill for at least 2 hours.

Makes around 10 bars

Nutrition (per bar, approx.):

160-180 kcal, 8-10g protein, 20-25g carbs, 3-4g fiber, 3-4g sugar, 6-8g fat.

Cost Comparison:

Store-bought: Around $3 per bar
Homemade: Approx $0.25 per bar

Embrace the homemade goodness! ??
