Recipe of the Month ~ Protein Bars

I know I have not faithfully published a recipe every month on here like I intended but here is one for September! Several people on Facebook saw a status update about me making protein bars and wanted the recipe. I actually got the recipe I use from my sister, Lauren Bailey. She got the recipe from a co-worker several years ago when she worked in a beauty salon.

Protein Bars
2 c. chocolate whey protein powder
1 jar natural crunchy peanut butter
2 c. old fashioned oats
2 c. honey (I sometimes use less)
Melt peanut butter and honey together in microwave for 1 minute. Stir well and then add in the oats and protein. Mix thoroughly and press into a glass 9 x 13- inch dish. Cover and chill in refrigerator for several hours and then cut into bars. Keep stored in refrigerator with lid on. These will keep a long time.

Looks like a great recipe. Where do you buy chocolate whey protein and what brand do you use. Thanks

You can get chocolate whey protein powder at Walmart, GNC, and other places that sell nurtritional supplements. I usually just buy the big can from walmart located close to all the vitamins.
