Chocolate Peanut Butter Macro Protein Bar

April 24, 2019

Macro bars that are essentially meal replacements are all the rage this year. The only issue... the cost. I can not for the life of me stomach paying 2 bucks per bar. 

I needed something easy and on the go though. I just can't stand dragging a protein shake to church or on the go. Plus, my shake isn't quite as amazing once it's sat in my fridge at work all morning long. 

I recently got my hands on a Kize bar and after seeing the super simple ingredients thought that I could easily recreate it, and I did. 

Same texture. 
Same taste. 
Same calories and macros. 

You're welcome. 

Chocolate Peanut Butter Macro Protein Bar

Serves 1
1 tbsp raw honey 
1 tbsp natural peanut butter (or other nut butter)
2 tbsp rolled oats
1/2 scoop Chocolate Vega One Protein & Greens
2 tbsp water

Combine peanut butter and honey. Once mixed well, add oats, stir to combine again. Mix in protein powder. Stir well. Add in water, stir to form a dough like mixture. Pour the mixture out onto a piece of plastic wrap, form into a bar shape, and refrigerate until you're ready to eat it.

Notes: Depending on the protein powder you use, you might have to adjust the amount to get the right protein/macro breakdown. This could change the amount of water you need. Start with 1 tbsp of water and gradually add more until you get the desired consistency. Also, my macro goals are 45% Carb, 30% Fat, and 25% Protein. If yours are different then play around in MFP and customize this to meet your macros.
