Protein Bars

Why spend $3-$4 for a pre-made protein bar when you can make the for roughly $.75 using your own ingredients.  I use chocolate protein powder, but you can certainly use vanilla as well.  Here is the recipe.

3 cups protein powder
1 cup rolled oats (I use Bob's Red Mill)
1 cup peanut butter (creamy or crunchy)
1/4 cup flax seed
1/2 cup honey
1 cup milk
1 tbsp. vanilla-bean paste

Place all ingredients into the bowl of a mixer with the paddle attachment and turn medium until well incorporated.  Prepare a USA Pans Hot Dog Bun Pan by spraying it with Bak-klene for easy release, then pour prepared mixture into the pan spreading it evenly around.  Top it with a piece of parchment paper and press down to compact the mixture into the pan.  Place into the freezer for 1-2 hours, then remove from freezer and loosed around the edges using a butter knife to release air/suction.  Turn over onto cutting board and mixture should drop out.  Cut into ten bars - enjoy!
