Is there such a thing as a ‘healthy’ commercial protein bar? Unfortunately, no. They’re glorified candy bars, in a lot of cases you’d be better off eating a chocolate bar. Might sound crazy but it’s true. Anyway it’s no use dissing without a solution so how about making your own? Here’s a recipe which is almost too easy - they taste pretty good too!
1 cup of uncooked rolled oats (porridge) OR Muesli
1 & 1/2 cups of your favourite whey protein powder
1/2 cup of peanut butter
5 tablespoons of honey
1/2 cup of raisins (if raisins don’t fire you up you can leave them out)
Mix the lot together in a bowl (easier said than done), then press the mixture out evenly into a baking dish. Throw into the fridge for about 2 hours, then cut up into small bars or squares. If you find the mixture isn't holding together well then place in the freezer for a while. Enjoy. Note there’s no dodgy Soy in these bars so they’re guaranteed not to obliterate your thyroid!
