I know this has been discussed and yes, I have done an archive search but I still wonder, what type of energy/food/meal bars you eat?

I like the Zone bars but they are loaded with "unfavorable" ingredients. The ones that taste good seem to be mostly carb or soy protein and the higher protein offerings have a bunch of things from chemistry class on the label.

Right now, I am using Greens Plus mostly because I like them and that's important because if I need a mid-afternoon snack and skip it, I'm prone to eating EVERYTHING I see when I get home.

You can always just make your own. I'm currently experimenting with a couple of recipes.

Okay, made my first batch, pictures are below. By my calculations, there is 31g protein, 20g carbohydrate and 13g fat per serving (I did 10 servings to make the math easy).


3 cups oats (I used Irish style oats)
3/4 cup peanut butter
8 protein servings
1.5 cups skim milk
2 egg whites
2 tsp baking powder
1/2 tsp salt

Mix thoroughly, put in a greased (or sprayed) baking pan (I used an 8x8 Pyrex dish).
Bake @ 350 degrees for 35 minutes

Cut as you like, store in the fridge.

Notes: I used peanut butter, but will try the next one with almond butter. I also used a mix of about 3 different types of protein powder (leftovers and the such), so my protein amount was higher than the recipe. According to the recipe, there should be 27g protein, 21g carb and 11g fat.

The bars are really, really hearty, but pretty good. As an afterthough, I would use a flavorless protein powder (got one that is a milk egg mix from the local health food store) because the peanut butter overpowers any of the taste from the powder.

My son liked them (then again, he likes to eat broccoli, which weirds most people out) and my wife said they were okay, meaning better than some of the other stuff I have made her try.

One question:

Did you measure the oats cooked or uncooked? I am guessing 3 cups cooked. I use Irish oats (steel cut, not rolled) so they have to be cooked to not be like little pebbles.
