Make this tasty breakfast bars with these highly recommended oats and bestseller protein powder that Amazon reviewers swear by!

This recipe makes 16-18 bars that can be kept in the refrigerator for up to 1 week or frozen until ready to eat.

Mix dry ingredients in a bowl, and microwave honey and peanut butter in a separate bowl before mixing in with the dry ingredients.

Add whatever toppings you choose, I went with craisins and shredded coconut because that is what I had on hand. Chocolate chips, crushed nuts, or other dried fruit would be delicious too.

Each bar provides 200cal, 7g protein, 3g of fiber, and 24g carbohydrates to keep you full and energized all morning long.
