Method;

Put oat flour and protein powder with a pinch of salt together in a bowl and stir to mix. Add some spices like suggested above if you want, but it’s not necessary since they taste great without too. Add the almond butter and honey. Mix thoroughly with a wooden spoon. Add a drop of milk or water if it seems to dry.

Oil spray your baking dish first and then line with parchment paper, press the mixture very firmly in to the dish. Decorate with the Almonds if desired.

Place in the freezer for about an hour before cutting or overnight in the refrigerator.

Eat within 5 days.

TIP No.2: Dip them in very dark melted Chocolate (70% Cocoa) , if you want to be extra naughty.

    I was just telling DJ that I need to stop spending so much money on quest bars (my protein bar of choice). These looks amazing- I will have to make them in the next couple weeks during my “Cooking Spoon” week of food!!! I am going to plan my menu now!

      Thank you Mack, they are so quick to make, all you need is the patience to let them set, hehe. And I use to spend a lot of money on protein bars too, such a waist when you have a quick alternative, right? Thank you for stopping by and your sweet comments. Have a great weekend.
