Protein Bars - No Bake

Aren't you getting sick of eating those high-cost protein bars that are full of ingredients that you cannot pronounce? Try these homemade bars for a refreshing change.

No Bake Protein Bars

8 oz. fat free cream cheese
4 scoops protein powder (Low carb – I prefer chocolate)
2 cups whole uncooked oats
1/2 cup Splenda® (use the “baking” Splenda®)
1 tablespoon cinnamon

Combine Splenda®, softened cream cheese, protein powder and cinnamon in a bowl and mix until it is smooth.

Add the oats and mix. If too thick as protein powder consistency may vary, add ¼ cup of water.

Spray an 8x8 pan with cooking spray. Spread the mixture in the pan. Place in the fridge for an hour.

Cut into evenly sized bars and ENJOY.

**Note – any high temperature impacts protein powders by destroying most of its nutritional value. Therefore, you always want to use protein powder in non-baking recipes.

Stay tuned……….
