Whether I am traveling or running around town with my four girls, I always feel best when I keep up my protein intake. My kids and husband love when I make homemade protein bars, and of course that is so much cheaper than buying them. Buy protein powder in the bulk aisle of your grocery store. If you are using unflavored protein powder, feel free to add in a bit of cocoa or vanilla extract for extra flavor.

Ingredients

Directions

Preheat the oven to 350 degrees F. Grease a 9 by 13-inch baking dish with olive oil or nonstick pan spray. Mix the oats, sunflower seeds, coconut, brown sugar, cinnamon, and salt in a large bowl. 

In another medium bowl, stir together the coconut oil, yogurt, almond butter, and honey. Add the yogurt mixture to the oat mixture and mix until the two are thoroughly combined. Stir in the protein powder, almonds, and cranberries. The mixture will be sticky. 

Spread the mixture into the prepared dish and bake for 15 minutes. Take the pan out of the oven and let the -mixture cool slightly, then slice it crosswise into 10 bars. Carefully remove the bars from the baking dish and use a spatula to transfer them to a parchment paper-lined rimmed baking sheet. 

Bake until the bars start to turn golden, about 15 minutes longer. Remove the baking sheet from the oven, transfer the bars to a wire rack, and cool completely. (Wrap in aluminum foil or plastic wrap and refrigerate for up to 1 week.)
