Low Carb Protein Bars

These homemade protein bars are very easy to make and you can make them to your liking.  Very versatile.  These are great for a post workout, cravings, or if your bulking up muscle.

Homemade Protein Bars
200g protein powder, any flavor
200g all natural, no sugar added peanut butter or other nut butter with oil
100g Sugar free flavored syrup(DaVinci or Torani)

Add all ingredient to bowl and mix until combined.  Should look crumbly.  Line a 8X8 inch baking pan with parchment, leaving some go up the side so you can remove easily.  Pour mixture in and press down until all even.  Put in fridge and chill for an hour.  Remove from pan and cut into 10 even pieces.  I cut in half one way and then cut the other way to make 5 rows.  Wrap in saran wrap and store in the fridge.  You can add nuts,dried unsweetened berries, SF chocolate chips, unsweetened coconut.  I add oatmeal and raisins (pic above)for my husband as he is bulking up muscle.   One of my favorite flavors is chocolate raspberry.  I use chocolate protein powder and raspberry syrup.
Makes 10 bars.  Nutritional value may very due to products used.

Atkins Phase 2 and up.
