Healthy Delicious Protein Bars
- 1 cup quick oats, ground into a flour
- ½ cup quick oats
- ⅓ cup plain, unflavoured protein powder
- ⅓ cup unsweetened coconut
- ½ cup peanut butter (I used finely ground peanuts, rather than 'butter' with added ingredients)
- ⅓ cup honey
- 2 tsp. vanilla extract
- ⅓ cup hazelnuts, roughly chopped
Mix oat flour, oats, protein powder, coconut, and nuts together in a small bowl.
In a larger bowl, mix peanut butter, honey, and vanilla, and then add the dry ingredients. Mix well.
Press into a baking tray or any dish, really.
Make sure to press really, really well to compact the bars and allow it to set in the fridge for at least 30 minutes.
Loosen the sides to remove from the tray.
Cut into bars, wrap individually, and store in the fridge.
Naturally, they would also be right at home in nearly any kind of drop cookie or blondie.
