Forget spending money on all those meal replacement bars that have a bad after taste. Make your own with this great recipe. I found it online somewhere. These are great to eat before a hard workout. Each bar has around 200 calories. I don't recommend this one for weight loss because it does have a higher fat content.

Ingredients Nutrition

  • 2 12 cups natural-style peanut butter
  • 2 cups honey
  • 2 14 cups protein powder
  • 3 cups uncooked oatmeal
  • 12 cup raisins
  • 14 cup wheat bran

Directions

  1. In a double boiler, warm the peanut butter and honey to a smooth consistency. This step can be done in the microwave as well--just heat both ingredients for 70 to 90 seconds.
  2. In a mixing bowl, stir together all remaining dry ingredients. Pour in the peanut-butter mixture and stir until completely combined.
  3. Spread uniformly into a brownie pan. Slice into 12 to 16 pieces, then wrap each piece in plastic wrap. Refrigerate or freeze before cutting if mixture does not seem to be hard enough.
  4. Each Granola Nut Protein Bar costs 25 to 35 cents to make, as opposed to 99 cents and up for store-bought energy bars. On top of that, if you do use organic ingredients, you won't believe the difference!

Haven't made these yet, but wanted to give everyone a heads up on the calories. They are nowhere near 200 calories a piece. These are more of a weight gaining or "bulking" bar, definitely not a snack for those looking to lose weight!

16 servings will cost you about 500 calories a bar
12 servings will cost about 650 calories

Wow! No, I won't ever buy another granola nut protein bar! These are great! And so easy to make! Once in the brownie pan I did need to chill a bit for them to slice up nicely. They didn't stick to the pan either. I confess that I didn't have natural-style peanut butter, I used Jif; however, you can easily control the quality and taste of these by using high-end and organic products when making them. Love 'em!
