3 Minute Protein Granola Bars
Inspired by: Peanut Butter Homemade Protein Bars
“3 Minute” High Protein Granola Bars
- 1 1/2 cups quick or rolled oats (120g)
- 1/4 tsp salt
- 1/2 cup peanut butter (or Sunbutter for nut-free)
- 1/2 cup raw agave or honey
- 2/3 cup protein powder - have fun with different flavors (70g)
- handful mini chocolate chips, optional
Stir all ingredients together until well-mixed. Transfer the mixture to a 9×14 pan lined with parchment or wax paper. (For thicker bars than the ones shown, you can use an 8×8 pan.) Place another sheet of parchment or wax over the top and continue to smush down and spread until it fills the bottom of the pan. Freeze until hard, then cut into bars. For optimum freshness, store leftover bars in the freezer for up to a month.
