Homemade Protein Bar Recipes

My husband has been asking me to make homemade protein bars for a while now. So a few days ago I decided to try a couple of different recipes.
#1) Homemade Protein Bars:
2 cups gluten free oats
4 scoops chocolate protein powder (gluten free)
Sprinkle of cinnamon (optional)
½ cup raw chopped almonds, ½ cup natural peanut butter and 1/3 cup water

Mix all ingredients together, spread into pan and refrigerate
#2) Homemade Banana Chocolate Protein Bars:
1 mashed banana
11/2 cups gluten free oats
2 tbsp ground flax seed
2-4 scoops of gluten free protein powder (I used 2)
¼ cup natural peanut butter
¼ cup organic unsweetened coconut
¼ cup coconut oil
¼ cup water
½ dark chocolate bar (Lindt 90% dark chocolate)

Mix all ingredients except chocolate together and spread into pan. Melt chocolate and spread over mixture. Place in freezer for approximately 2 hours.
Results: Both are very yummy options, however while I prefer #1; my husband prefers #2. It is nice to have some variety so having both options available is ideal. We are currently enjoying them both J
Try them out and let me know what you think.
Which do you prefer?
Until next time,


  1. Love making my own protein bars too! Love how you melted chocolate to top!

  2. yes the chocolate was a nice addition to those ones; however I would go with a little less banana when I make them again. My husband loved them :)

  3. Love protein bars and these are a great recipe.
