Home-made chocolate, cranberry and pumpkin seed protein bars
So I’m feeling quite proud of myself, putting together this recipe :) These protein bars taste great and are easy and cheapish to make. They’re idea for my post-gym snack because they are packed with protein, as well as some good old vitamins and minerals - the mixed seeds also provide the good kind of fat to replenish me after burning it all off (I wouldn’t want to lose my curves ^_^) The measurements are just guidelines, based on what I used..
1/2 cup oats
1/2 cup butter
4 scoops chocolate-flavour protein powder
1/2 cup water
1 tsbp milk
2 handfuls of dried cranberries
5 handfuls of mixed seeds (I used a mix of sunflower, semame, linseed and pumpkin seeds)
In a saucepan, melt the butter on a low heat and mix in the oats. Remove from heat and combine with protein powder, water and egg. Add the cranberries (or your own choice of fruits/berries etc),the mixed seed and the milk and mix well.
Spread onto a baking tray and cook in the oven at 180C, for 25 minutes (or until edges begin to crisp)
Allow to cool, cut into slices and enjoy (although not too much, you probably want to spread them out a little) :)
