Have you ever considered making your own protein bars? I used to buy them and eventually stopped because of the costs and because many of the ones I tried just didn't taste very good. I came across a cool protein bar recipe "how-to" video below and it got me interested in making my own homemade protein bars. There are several advantages to making them yourself:

  • No preservatives
  • Lower in sugar
  • You can add your favorite ingredients (protein powder, nuts, dried fruit, etc.)
  • High fiber
  • Lower in fat
  • Costs much less than store brands

They are a snap to make and I'm sure can last at least a week or more for one person, depending on how often you eat them. Check out the video below. You can find the ingredients in most health food stores or local supermarket.

  1. I am in Florida and I’m trying to find a homemade protein bar that won’t turn into mush when it’s been in my car for an hour. I used to buy EAS bars that looked like partially dehydrated peanut butter, which held up well down here, but I can’t find anything now that doesn’t have a chocolate layer that is going to melt. Thank you.

  2. No, no baking. They harden in the fridge – that’s it.
    Ideally you want to avoid baking those protein powders as the heat of the oven can break down the proteins contained in them

    1. Heat doesn’t break down the proteina, it only denatures them which means it changes the shape of them. Baking will not destroy the essential amino acids so any form of cooking is fine.
