Healthy chocolate protein brownie

 I tried this recipe for homemade protein bars and they turned out so yummy that I thought I’d pass along the recipe to you all.  A single protein bar at the store can cost as much as $3! All you need for these are ingredients you probably already have laying around the house, and they take just minutes to make. There are several variations that you can choose from, I made my favorite, but be creative and make your own as you please! But keep it healthy!

Total time: 10minutes (not counting time in fridge)

Ingredients:

  •  4 Scoops Chocolate Protein Powder
  • 1/4 cup natural peanut butter
  • 1/4 cup ground flax seed
  • 1/2 cup honey
  • 1-2 tbsp water

 Method:

  1. Combine all the ingredients in a bowl, add a tablespoon of water at a time until you get a desired ‘crumbly’ texture. Be careful not to make your mixture too wet.
  2.  Cover a tray in parchment paper or foil and press mixture into a 5×4 inch rectangle.
  3. Place in refrigerator for 30 minutes (be aware that your bars will not be as solid as store bought bars)
  4. Remove from refrigerator and cut into five 1 inch bars, place flat on plate and store in fridge for up to a week.
