Breakfast Bars Rich in Fiber and Protein

Breakfast Bars Rich in Fiber and Protein

The reason I came up with this recipe was because my physician had informed me that I needed to consume more fiber, and I was sick of eating protein bars that I had purchased from the store for breakfast when I was driving between the gym and my place of employment. As a result of the inclusion of wheat germ, flaxseed, protein powder, peanut butter, and oats, this breakfast is an excellent way to start the day.

How To Make Homemade Protein Bars


  • Cooking Spray
  • 1 1/2 cups quick-cooking oats.
  • ¼ cup wheat germ
  • 1/4 cup ground flax seed.
  • 2 tablespoons of vanilla-flavored hemp protein powder.
  • 1 teaspoon of ground cinnamon.
  • ½ teaspoon salt.
  • Three bananas.
  • ¼ cup peanut butter (like Jif®).
  • 2 tablespoons honey.
  • 1 teaspoon of vanilla essence.
  • ¼ cup natural peanut butter (or to taste).

Preheat the oven to 375 degrees Fahrenheit (190 degrees Celsius). Line an 8x8-inch baking dish with aluminum foil, allowing the foil to hang over the edges; spray pan with cooking spray.

Step 2

Combine the oats, wheat germ, flax seed, protein powder, cinnamon, and salt in a mixing dish. In a second large dish, mash the bananas and whisk in 1/4 cup Jif® peanut butter, honey, and vanilla essence until thoroughly combined. Combine the dry ingredients with the banana mixture and distribute evenly in the baking dish.

Step 3

Bake in a preheated oven for 20 minutes. Spread 1/4 cup natural peanut butter on top.

Step 4

Bake for another 10 minutes, or until the sides are gently browned and the mixture is set. Allow to cool in the pan before lifting the bars to a work surface with aluminum foil handles. Cut into bars, cover with plastic wrap, and place in the refrigerator.

Cook's Note

Any protein powder will do for this recipe. It is because hemp is so high in fiber that I utilize it. When selecting a powder that is extremely sweet, it is recommended that you reduce the amount of honey that you use. In most cases, I use a brand-name peanut butter (like Jiff) for the bars itself, then I spread an all-natural peanut butter on top of them. With the intention of having a speedy breakfast, I split them into separate parts and then wrap them in plastic when they have cooled down.
