As you guys know, I’m not a huge protein powder fan. I don’t drink protein shakes and I only eat protein bars on occasion.
However, I know that a lot of people swear by it. So, this year I decided to whip up some homemade protein bars to give as Christmas present to some friends at the gym!
I had several taste testers for the first batch and they got the seal of approval from everyone… so I decided they were worth sharing with you guys!
Here’s how you make them:
Feel free to customize to your liking:
- Sub your favorite nut butter for the pb.
- Try Rice Krispies or another crunchy cereal instead of Chex.
- Eat them plain or just drizzle with chocolate instead of covering the whole top.
- Use unflavored protein powder instead of vanilla, but you may need to increase the honey and decrease the milk.
Hope you like them! Be sure to store them in the fridge – or the freezer if you like them a little colder!
