    Homemade protein/breakfast bars 4th May 18 at 7:59 AM
    I want to get out of the habit of the mid morning packet of crisps snack.
    Does anyone have a recipe for protein/breakfast bars?
    Something quick and easy that does not have a mountain of ingredients.

    I have a recipe for peanut butter bars. They are a bit like a flapjack but a bit healthier and very tasty. The recipe is from a low gi cookbook.
    4tbsp crunchy peanut butter
    4tbsp clear honey
    175g porridge oats
    50g sultanas

    Put the peanut butter and honey in a saucepan and heat very gently until melted. Add the oats and sultanas and stir until thoroughly mixed and has the consistency of crumbs.
    Pour mixture into a 23x15cm cake tin and press with the back of a spoon. Bake in a preheated oven at 190c / gas 5 for 15 minutes. Leave in the tin to cool and then cut into 8 bars.

    Nutritional information per bar is:
    205 kcal
    Fat 6g (1.4g saturated)
    Protein 6g

    They are quite filling

    Greg Wallace made something like that in one of the 'Eat well for less' episodes.
    On my phone so hard to search but if I find it later, I'll post it.

    I make them most weekends for work, I buy different nuts and fruits for variety usually from Lidl. Sometimes I even melt a bar of chocolate over the top.

    I read thrifty Lesley s blog quite often, she does some excellent recipes. I highly rate her pad Thai recipe.
