I love these no bake protein bars!!! Compliments of  readers in a couple of my fitness mags, I found these no bake protein bars to be chewy, peanut buttery and easy to make. The ingredients are super cheap to buy and super easy to find. They are great to eat before or after your work out or as a healthy protein rich snack.

No-Bake Oatmeal Peanut Butter Protein Bars.

Ingredients:

2 cups of quick cooking oats

1/2 cup of natural peanut butter (you can substitute any nut butter for peanut butter but it will obviously change the taste)

1 tablespoon of ground flax seeds

1/2 cup of water

Directions:

1- Kneed all ingredients in a large bowl.

2- Line square baking pan with wax paper. Spread the dough into the pan using a spatula. Spread a thin layer of peanut butter on top of the dough if you so desire.

3- Freeze for 30-45 minutes.

4- Remove from freezer and cut into bars.

Makes 8 servings. 230 calories per bar. 10 grams of fat. 21 grams of carbs. 4 grams of fiber. 3 grams of sugar. 15 grams of protein.
