Healthy Snack Bars Even Your Kids Will Love

February 4, 2020

I accidentally made something my kids love. (And I like it too.)

 

I was experimenting with a recipe to add protein to trail mix, for a healthy trail mix workshop and nutrition chat I’m doing for a local group.

 

This recipe transpired.

 

It ended up not being right for the trail mix, but it made awesome, healthy snacks for the kids. I let them taste my first attempt and they ate the entire batch! So I made more, just to have some for later, and they promptly devoured that, too.

 

Finding a to-go snack that has protein in it can be challenging. These have a good balance of protein, carbs, and fats that I’m content with giving my kiddos. My daughter usually eats a LARABAR in the car, but these homemade snack bars pack a little more protein.

 

I hope it goes over as well for you as it did for me!

 

Ingredients

  • 2 tablespoons of peanut butter (no sugar added, natural)

  • 2 tablespoons of dark chocolate chips

  • 1 ounce of milk

  • 1 scoop of protein powder (I used chocolate)

  • ½ cup rolled oats

 

Directions

 

To make these protein clusters you’ll want to melt on the stovetop and mix together 2 tablespoons of peanut butter, 1 ounce of milk and 2 tablespoons of dark chocolate (I used dark chocolate chips, but any form of dark chocolate will do).

 

After that’s done, quickly mix in 1 scoop of protein powder (I used chocolate flavor, but feel free to experiment) and 1/2 cup of rolled oats.

 

Put the mixture onto plastic wrap and use the plastic wrap to shape into a square. Cover and freeze. When solid, cut into rectangles or bite size pieces.

 

Keep refrigerated for up to 1 week.
