Chocolate Peanut Butter Banana Protein Bars
I live a crazy hectic lifestyle and I NEED to eat every 2-3 hrs or I get very cranky! I love my protein bars, but it does get pretty expensive when I rely on store bought bars to get me through my week. I have created a few protein bar recipes, all with different flavors and textures. You will have to let me know what you think! Lets start from the beginning, shall we?
Gather all ingredients. Prepare a large cookie sheet with parchment or wax paper, covering the top of sheet.
Put Kashi cereal into food processor and grind up for a few seconds until finely ground.
Pour cereal into a large bowl and add the remaining ingredients except for the coconut oil. Mix well with hands.
Scoop coconut oil into a small dish and microwave for about 15 seconds until melted.
Pour oil into bowl and mix well into the other ingredients with hands. The mixture will harden up pretty quickly, so mix quick!
Spread mixture onto prepared cookie sheet and press down firmly.
Place the cookie sheet in the freezer for 15 minutes, until bars are completely firm.
Take out of the freezer and cut into equal bars (using a large knife).
Individually wrap the bars in seran wrap or ziploc baggie for easy access throughout the week. Keep refrigerated until ready to eat.
