No Bake Almond Butter Protein Bars
- 1 cup oat bran flour
- 1/2 cup of your favorite flavor of Protein Powder – I used vanilla
- 1/2 cup quick cooking oats
- 1 tablespoon chia seed
- 2 teaspoons flaxseed meal
- 1 cup cereal your favorite cereal, crushed (cornflakes, rice chex etc.)
- 1/2 cup almond butter
- 1/4 cup dairy-free milk
- 1/4 cup maple syrup
Take a 8 by 8 inch Baking Pan and lay waxed paper (or parchment paper) across bottom of the pan. Make sure it covers the complete bottom of the pan and over the sides. Press down into the pan with it overlapping the sides at opposite ends because you will use these ‘handles’ to remove the bars.
Make sure you like the flavor of the protein powder because that flavor will be very evident in these bars.
In a large bowl add the flour, protein powder, quick cooking oats, chia seeds, flaxseed meal and cereal.
In a medium bowl mix together the almond butter, non dairy milk and maple syrup.
Add the maple syrup mixture to the dry ingredients.
The mixture will be crumbly. If it does not stick together when crushed in the palm of your hands add a tablespoon of water and mix again.
Dump the mixture into the prepared 8×8 pan and evenly press down with your fingers and the palm of your hand.
Freeze for 20-30 minutes.
Cut into bars.
Store in an airtight container and store in the refrigerator or freezer.
