PB2 Protein Granola Bar

I am obsessed with granola bars, so today I decided to whip some up myself. The brands at the store are so sweet & created for kids, so I wanted to make a little something for my adult taste buds (and appetite).

These PB2 Protein Granola Bars are packed full of protein and deliciousness! These are seriously easy to make. Here we go.... I like to get out all my ingredients before I start baking/cooking, to make sure I have everything I need. I can't tell you how many times I've started baking & found out that I ran out of milk!

1 large banana {if it's ripe, it's sweeter!}
1 1/2 cup oats
1/4 cup PB2
1/4 cup vanilla protein powder {I used AdvoCare Muscle Gain}
1/2 cup ground flaxseed
1 Tbsp vanilla extract
 1/4 to 1/2 cup unsweeted almond milk {I used Silk}
1 Tbsp agave {or honey}
1/4 cup chocolate chips {optional}

  1. Mash your bananas in a large bowl. This will make it easier to mix in the next step.
  2. Add oats, PB2, protein powder, and ground flaxseed. You can mix it with a mixer if you need to.
  3. Add vanilla, agave, and almond milk until it looks like Picture #1. 
  4. Mix in chocolate chips or wait until after step 6.
  5. Spread onto a greased baking sheet or 9x9 pan.
  6. Press down until granola bars are flat on top.
  7. Bake at 350 degrees F for 10 mins.
  8. Cut it into granola bars and eat warm or let it cool. Delicious!!
