How’s it going, it’s your muscle building coach Lee Hayward and I’m here with another delicious muscle building and about a cooking nutrition tip for you. This is one that I actually stole from my good friend Dave Rule. I stole this out of his anabolic cooking cookbook and I’m going to share it with you here and now on this video. I’m going to show you how to make your own homemade high protein meal replacement bars. Now this is a delicious recipe and you can make high protein fudge protein bars and the cool thing about it is you’re going to save a ton of money with this recipe. If you go and like buy protein bars now, depending on where you buy them and the brand you buy, I mean protein bars can run you $5 a bar. Per serving, it’s probably the most expensive supplement that’s on the market right now is protein bars and there’s no need for you to be forking up that kind of cash when you could make your own at home for just pennies on the dollar and I’m going to show you exactly how to do that. Now I said I got this off right from the anabolic cooking cookbook and these protein bars, what I’m going to show you here is a recipe to make 10 protein bars and each one of them has 27 grams of protein, just 18 grams of carbs and 16 grams of fat. So again this is high protein bars. You could use them as part of a fat loss diet or if you’re in a mass building phase, you could try and double up on them and use them as well to help get some extra calories in in between meals so what we need here now for this, we need 6 to 8 scoops of chocolate protein powder. I have that right here and I’m going to be a little generous and go with a full 8 scoops. We need one cup of oatmeal. Give me a second, I forgot to take out the oatmeal. I normally am very organized here with my videos and I have everything here but not the oatmeal so I got the oats and one cup of oatmeal. A third of a cup of natural peanut butter, not the regular old hydrogenated oil Kraft peanut butter crap, get the natural peanut butter, the one that you actually have to stir up. That’s the good stuff, healthy fat there. We have three tablespoons of natural honey. I need to be using a half a cup of low fat milk. This one here is 1% milk and that’s what I would recommend there and three tablespoonfuls of crushed peanuts. And what we’re going to do is after we make the protein bars, we’re going to roll them in the peanuts to give them a little bit of extra flavor and a little bit of extra crunch. So what I’m going to do right now is mix all the ingredients in a mixing bowl and then we’re going to roll the bars into 10 protein bars. Roll them just on a sheet or on a plate and place them in the fridge just to let them cool and solidify and then we’re going to have our protein bars. So without further ado, I’m just going to get cranking, one cup of oatmeal. This is quick oats, let’s just ground it up a little bit finer and that’s when I roll them in. Here we go, I’ve got --. There’s the oatmeal and eight scoops of chocolate protein powder and this is chocolate way. Actually this one at Costco, they had it on sale awhile back. It was like $26 for a container on sale a little while back so it’s pretty cool. One, seven, and eight scoops of chocolate way protein. What else do we have, a third of a cup of natural peanut butter and now it’s only a little bit left, I only probably got a third of a cup so I’ll just scoop that in there. So we’ve got the peanut butter, half a cup of milk and three tablespoonfuls of honey. Alright, so I’m just going to mix all that together. So due to the magic of internet video, we have speeded up time and I have the protein bars already rolled out and formed. I have 10 protein bars here now and I say I have my crushed peanuts, you’re going to love my nuts and what I’m going to do is just roll the bars in the peanuts. Again, this is totally optional. You don’t necessarily have to do the peanuts.
