Healthy Protein Bars Recipe


We LOVE these healthy protein bars! My husband takes them to work and it gives him that extra mid-afternoon energy. This 9x13in dish of protein bars is packed with 120g of Protein.

Ingredients
* 1 cup instant Shaklee protein (Shaklee vanilla protein works too)
* 1 1/2 cups oats
* 1 cup almonds/walnuts, chopped
* 1/2 cup sunflower seeds
* 1/4 - 1/3 cup ground flax seed
* 1 1/4 cup natural peanut butter
* 2/3 cup raw honey
* 1 tsp pure vanilla extract

Combine dry ingredients in a bowl and set aside. Heat honey on a stove until it starts to come to a boil. Remove from heat immediately so it doesn't burn and add peanut butter and vanilla extract. Stir until peanut butter is nice and smooth.

Add the peanut butter/honey mixture to the dry ingredients. Stir ingredients together until they stick. If mixture seems too dry, add extra peanut butter or honey.

Press mixture into a 9x13in glass dish. We like to melt some dark chocolate chips and spread the melted chocolate on top of the bars. Refrigerate and cool. Cut into squares and enjoy!



*Tip: If using peanut butter, make sure to use natural or organic as many brands add sugar, oil and preservatives.

Hope you enjoy this healthy, protein packed snack!

  1. do you know if I can skip the shaklee protein or if I can substitute it with something else?!

    1. Hi! The protein is the main ingredient - I'm sure you could try it with another brand of protein if you prefer. We like using this Shaklee protein as it is all natural, non-GMO and has a neutral taste.

  8. Love you blog and your shares. I have been a Shaklee distributor for 20 years, I found Shaklee when I was dying and a friend said just try it for a month, I am now 70 years old, on no medication and in perfect health and still able to play basketball and run circles around my younger husband. He calls me the "energizer bunny" Thank you to God who brought my friend with Shaklee Protein Drink, Vita Lea, Vitamin E. Beta Carotine and B Complex ~ within one month my doctor wanted to know what i was doing because I was healthier than he had seen me in years. I do not sell anymore as we travel almost full time but I still love Shaklee and God. I am so glad I found your blog

  46. Unfortunately there are a lot of AIDS/Herpes denials on Herbal cures still out there. I did research on them after I was tested HIV/Herpes positive I was so worried am I going to die soon. I continue my search again on herbal remedy for Std, then I found lots of testimony on how Dr Itua Herbal Medicine Cured HIV/Aids, Herpes Virus,Copd, Hepatitis, Diabetes, On websites sharing their testimonies, which made much more sense to me. All the authors pronounce Dr Itua As a man with Good Heart, I pick interest in their testimonies and I contact him about my situation then he gave me procedure how it works, I proceed after one week he courier his Herbal Medicine to me and instruct me on how to drink it for two weeks to cure. I receive His Herbal Medicine so I drank it for two weeks as I was told then after 2 days I go for a test I found out I was cured from HIV/Aids & Herpes Virus, I pay homage to him 2 months ago to his country to celebrate with him on his African festival which he told me it usually happens every year. I know there are lots of (HIV)/Aids&Herpes Virus denials of Herbal Remedy movement the same few doctors and they represent a very small faction of the community. I could have died because I refused Natural Herbs Cures for so long, but luckily, by the grace of God I am alive to tell my story.
