About This Recipe

“This is a bar recipe I found on a health and fitness site. The original recipe made it a protein bar, but when I made it (ages ago) I didn’t have any so I left it out. If you want to make it a protein bar simply add 2 cups of protein powder and add an extra 1/2 cup of honey. This is a good bar for straight after an intense workout, but it tastes like a dessert so even if you’re not active you can make it just as a snack bar or treat.”


    • 1 cup natural-style peanut butter
    • 1 cup honey
    • 3 cups dry uncooked old-fashioned oatmeal


  1. Combine peanut butter and honey in a large nonstick pot and warm up over a low heat until runny and mixed.
  2. Mix in the oatmeal (and protein powder if using).
  3. You don’t want to cook it, just heat it up enough to stir everything together nicely.
  4. Press into a 9×9-inch pan.
  5. Let cool, then cut into 16 equal bars.
  6. Wrap each bar in foil and store in plastic bags. – No need to refrigerate as the ingredients are natural.
