Breakfast Protein Bar Recipe
2c rolled oats
1/2c chia seeds
1/2c protein powder
1/2c mini chocolate chips
1c peanut butter
1/2c almond or coconut milk
Put 1 & 1/2 cups oats into a food processor and blend until flour consistency, then dump into a large mixing bowl. Add the remaining 1/2 cup of oats to the mixing bowl. Dump in the rest of the dry ingredients and give a good stir.
Combine all of the wet ingredients in a separate bowl. Stir until all ingredients are mixed into a thick consistency. (PRO TIP: cold peanut butter will make this difficult. If you keep your peanut butter in the fridge, remove it a few hours prior to making this recipe. Combining the wet ingredients works best if the peanut butter and almond milk are room temperature.)
Dump the wet ingredient mixture over the dry ingredients and stir. Eventually this mixture will get really though to stir with a spoon/spatula. At that point, wet your hands slightly and continue to stir with your hands until all of the dry ingredients have been thoroughly incorporated.
Line a 21X21 centimeter (8x8 inch) pyrex with parchment paper. Place the protein bar mixture into the pyrex and press the mixture to fill the entire bottom of the pyrex. Place in the fridge overnight and cut into 12 bars in the morning!
