  • 12 cup skim milk
  • 1 cup natural-style peanut butter or 1 cup low-fat peanut butter

    Pretty good from someone (myself) who is not a huge fan of protein bars. However my boyfriend loves them, so whipped up a batch & he enjoyed this homemade version a lot! I did add a sprinkle of mini chocolate chips over the top. Also slighty coated the oats in cinnamon/sugar & briefly toasted them. Thanks for a good idea!

    have not found a great tasting vanilla protein powder that the kids like, any suggestions

    I haven’t made these, but I think I might toast the oatmeal before I added it. I’m not real crazy about things with plain, uncooked oatmeal I them, but I think that would be pretty good.

    Really loved these- SO simple! I made a vegan version with Oatley (chocolate) and 1.5 teaspoons of cocoa powder. Also a tiny bit of Splenda. Not as healthy/low calorie I suppose, but I loved it!
