Easy Homemade Protein Bars

I thought it was about time to do a post on my breakfast bowl bars, I demonstrate them at workshops and to my friends constantly as there such a handy treat! I figured they were almost too easy, but I’m sure you will just appreciate the ease of this recipe. I have given a few different options of my favorite flavors but the method for each is the same, a one bowl wonder mix. I have listed the protein brands that I use (but any will work), this is not a sponsored post but just for anyone that is interested incase they use the same brand.

Simply spoon each ingredient into a breakfast bowl and using the back of the spoon mash the ingredients up together until a dough forms, not too wet or too dry. You can roll them up and eat them ‘raw’, but my favorite thing is to mold into a bar and bake them for 8-10 minutes (timing changes with brands but roughly between this time they will be done) at 190°C (PREHEATED fan oven), until a golden crust has formed all along the edges- they will have risen and expanded a little. Remove from the oven and let cool for 2-3 minutes to let the crust harden before digging in! I bake them in advance and wrap them in some foil if I want to take it somewhere with me like the cinema or work, they stay fresh all day in your bag- guaranteed you have no smelly gym gear in there too! For anyone who uses any other flavor proteins and needs inspiration mail or tag me your flavor and brand I am definitely up to the challenge of creating a tailored one for you!
