Protein packed bars

We all like to eat things that  give us  energy we need , but many times we forget that its important to balance  the proportion  of carbohydrates, proteins and fibre which together can give us  the health benefits of what we are eating . It is exactly what this recipe does and this recipe I got from my uncle.
These bars have used whey powder as the main ingredient, whey is full protein. You can add what ever nuts, you like to this recipe. I like home made bars because you can make them fresh and also we know what we add in them, and make them to our liking.
It is very economical too as these bars are expensive to buy.

1 cup Rolled oats its important to use the right kind of ingredient to get optimal results, so use steel cut or rolled oats.
1/4 cup Whey powder , this is available in health food or grocery store too. It is the protein content
1/4 cup mixed nuts
1/4 cup flax seeds for the fibre
1/4 cup  golden raisin
1/2 cup skim milk or Almond milk is good too.
1/4 cup honey
1/4 cup peanut butter 


Soaked Oats


Ready mixture in foil

Ready protein bars

Protein bars 

1.Soak rolled oats in 1/2 cup water ,overnight or for at least 6 to 8 hours.
Next day, add skim milk to the soaked oats, and microwave for  2 to 3 minutes, till the appear soft. Next follow step 3.
This will make the bars  soft and chewy, if you want the uncooked type go to step 2 directly.
2. In a medium bowl add in almond/skim milk, add whey powder ,stir with a spoon and add in oats, honey,nuts and  flax seeds, and peanut butter. Stir this mixture together and pour into a flat container, lined with parchment or silver foil and refrigerate overnight or 4 to 6 hours. Remove from foil and cut into bars.
3. Add in whey powder,nuts, and honey. Mix in flax seeds and raisins and mix  it all together, store in a container. Have a tablespoon full of this mixture  and get protein and  energy before   your workouts. You can form them into bars or  round balls.
Whey is nothing else but liquid that is obtained from curdling milk, It  is complete protein, like meat ,eggs ,dairy , and vegetables.
