If you are on the go, do not forget to pack this easy quick to make homemade protein bars.

Ingredients:

8 scoops of chocolate protein powder (isolate)

1 cup dry oats

1/2 cup dry cranberries

1/3 cup natural almond butter or peanut butter

3 tbsp honey

1/2 cup of 1 % milk or unsweetened almond milk

3 tbsp of crushed almonds

Instructions:

Mix together protein powder, oats and cranberries in one bowl.
Mix together wet ingredients – almond butter, honey, almond milk in another bowl.
Combine dry ingredients with wet ingredients. Mix well until dough is solid.
Form into 8 bars and then roll in the crushed almonds to finish.
Place in the fridge for about 30-45 minutes.
Store in the fridge for about a week.

Each bar has approximately 286 calories, 32g protein, 20g carbohydrates, 9g fat, 8g sugar, and 2,5g fiber.
I used whey protein powder isolate – 1 scoop had 130 calories, 27g protein, 2g carbs, 1,5g fat, 1g sugar.
