Protein bars are always so expensive in health food shops, and if you eat as much as they recommend you'd be wasting a fortune. Follow this recipe and make delicious (and possibly healthier) protein bars for pre and post-workout fuel.



Preparation Time: 5 minutes
Cooking Time: 30 minutes
Makes: 10 servings

Ingredients
2 eggs
100g of oats
50g of honey
50g of raw cacao nibs
3 tblsp of peanut butter
1 tblsp of almond butter
Handful of crushed walnuts
Handful of peanuts
3 tblsp of coconut butter
3 tblsp of vanilla protein powder (any)

Method
Place the peanut and almond butter in a heatproof bowl and add the honey.



Microwave this mixture for 30 seconds, remove and stir to a smooth paste.



Add the coconut butter and cacao nibs to this warm mixture because the heat will melt them. Add the nuts and stir.



Add the protein powder of your choice (ideally vanilla), oats, and eggs and stir.



A relatively smooth-yet-lumpy mixture remains.



Grease a baking tray lined with baking tray paper. Transfer the mixture on to the baking tray.



Spread the mixture and 'push' down with the back of the spoon to ensure even distribution.



Place in the oven for 25 minutes for a fan oven, 30 minutes for a gas oven at 170 degrees/gas mark 3.

Coconut oil is a healthier substitute for butter, peanut and almond butter are excellent sources of protein, and oats are a low fat fibrous carbohydrate that gives you energy before a workout.



Enjoy.
