Homemade Protein Bar Recipe

Want a high protein snack that almost tastes like a snickers?
This is my own homemade protein bar recipe.

I call it the ‘3 Ingredient Protein Bar‘ and it rules!!

It’s quick, simple and tastes great! Getting a quick blast of protein has never been easier or tastier for the natural bodybuilder.

Here’s your ingredients:

Natural Nut Butter of your choice – I like hazelnut butter as it’s lowest in carbs
Heavy/Double Cream
Whey Protein – The flavor of your choice.

Personally I think chocolate whey is great with this. The hazelnut and chocolate flavors go so well together.
Use chocolate whey and crunchy peanut butter for the snickers taste.
Also you can add a teaspoon or two of granulated splenda to sweeten it a little.

Instructions:

Put 50 grams of nut butter and 25 grams of whey protein into a bowl
Mix a little until dry and clumpy
Add 40ml of heavy cream. Now it magically smooths out quickly when mixed
Take out of bowl and shape into a bar

Enjoy it!

Your buddy,

Mark McManus

So is it 50g nut butter and 25g whey by weigh = 4 servings?
Do you know the approximate break down cal. protein?

FearnonebutOne 04-13-2011 01:51 PM

Heavy cream? That has to be fatty

I think he means the texture of the surface and color. Kind of reminded me of that too.

I used natty PB, the macros are really going to depend on what brands you use. For instance I made a double batch, macro for the whole batch is:

Whey = 10g carbs, 4g fat
Natty PB = 12g carbs, 32g fat
Heavy Cream= 0 carbs, 25g fat

Total= 22g carbs, 61g fat, 50g whey / 4 = 5.5g carbs, 15 fat, 12.5 protein

^^^ LOL!

Gerbilo 04-19-2011 07:35 PM

haha, and downhill this goes.

Has anyone tried these yet, btw?

Too much fat for me, but on the odd chance I have heavy cream in the fridge leftover from cooking I'd be tempted, and call them Rolos...

SouthernIllinois 04-20-2011 05:57 AM

Thanks Gerb!

He's my posse… What up!?

All joking aside though they do look really good but the whole heavy cream thing is fending me off a little… I'm sure there is a substitute that is not quite as "fat kid"esk

FearnonebutOne 04-20-2011 08:44 AM

When you figure that out SI let me know and I'll whip up a batch...I sure don't need no "fat kid"esk type stuff....lol

SouthernIllinois 04-20-2011 09:27 AM

just read an article on substitutions for heavy cream.

GREEK YOGURT!!
