Homemade Protein Bars

protein bars

Quick and delicious, these are a much healthier alternative to store-bought bars.
The only unhealthy part is they're so good we can't stop eating them.

Homemade Protein Bars


Ingredients
4 tablespoons butter (salted or unsalted)
16-ounce jar natural peanut butter (creamy or crunchy)
1/3 cup honey
1/4 cup chia seeds
1/4 cup flaxseed
2 teaspoons vanilla extract
2 cups crispy rice cereal
2 cups quick oats
1/2 cup tapioca flour
1/2 cup raisins
1/2 cup chopped walnuts (optional)
1/2 cup chocolate chips (mini or regular size)

Instructions
In a large sauce pan over low heat, melt all ingredients except for the chocolate chips, for about five minutes, stirring occasionally. When the ingredients have warmed enough to sufficiently mix together, remove pan from heat and let cool for 15 – 20 minutes. After the mixture has cooled, add the chocolate chips*.

Grease a 9” x 13” pan with olive oil and then coat the bottom of pan with sifted cocoa powder. Turn mixture into pan and compress and press to all sides. Refrigerate for at least two hours, and then cut into desired-sized bars. (The bars may be a little crumbly.)

Store in airtight container in refrigerator.

farragio hint:
*It is easier to mix and press ingredients by hand. Wearing unpowdered surgical rubber gloves will also help keep ingredients from sticking to hands.

"My skin hasn't felt this good in 20 years!"


My all-natural skin care products, called Dualistic™, can be used by both women and men, and serve double (and more!) duty for skin, hair, and nails.

I make my all-natural skin care products with ingredients literally found in nature, such as honey and avocado oil, and no chemicals or “unnatural” ingredients.

I've been making these all-natural products for years and I'm so excited to now be sharing them with you!

P. S. All of my product containers are reusable/recyclable, and I use cornstarch-based biodegradable packaging for shipping.
