Homemade Protein Bar Recipe

by Mark McManus on April 22, 2008

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?


The mind and the body are interrelated: what you do to one necessarily effects the other. There must be a balance between the two. If your body is strong but your mind is weak, you are a powerful instrument with no direction; such an instrument rarely produces good. If your mind is strong but your body is weak, then you may be filled with purpose and good intentions but have no strength necessary to act on your impulses. You must strengthen your mind to control your body; and strengthen your body so you can always follow the good directions of your mind.

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

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

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...

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
