2 Cups Oats
4 Scoops Protein Powder
2 Tbs Ground Flaxseed
1/2 Cup Natural Peanut Butter
1/2 Cup Water
Optional: Almond Butter
Optional: Ground Pecans
Optional: Dark Chocolate Chips
Mix dry ingredients together - Oats, Protein, and Flaxseed. (You can add about 1/2-1/3 of the chocolate chips to the patter at this point. Use your personal preference.)
Mix in Natural Peanut Butter, then Water
Mix well, will be clumpy and take awhile
Line 8x8 glass pan with aluminum foil, then use your hands to pack the mix into the pan.
Spread a light layer of almond butter over the top (I let mine set out a little while to be soft)
Sprinkle ground pecans over the top of the almond butter.
Melt about 1/3 of the (total) chocolate chips in the microwave. Using a spoon, drizzle the melted chocolate over the top of your bars.
Place into the freezer for 35 minutes
Cut into 3 sections of 3 - wrap in cling wrap and refrigerate.
Tips & Bonus Information
Ok, I totally played around with these until I found something that I preferred taste wise. I use BSN Banana Cream Protein Powder. You can use gluten free or pure whey, whatever works for you. I love the taste of banana with peanut butter, it gives it great flavor!
