Stir all ingredients together until well-mixed. Transfer the mixture to a 9×13 pan lined with parchment or wax paper. (For thicker bars, you can use an 8×8 pan.) Place another sheet of parchment or wax over the top and continue to smush down and spread until it fills the bottom of the pan. Freeze until hard, then cut into bars. For optimum freshness, store leftover bars in the freezer for up to a month.
This recipe has 4 large carb and fat servings, each with about a half protein serving. Feel free to pair this with an egg or other protein source to round out your breakfast or snack. I used a cinnamon protein powder, but try out different flavors of powder to discover what you like best, or keep the novelty by always changing up the flavor when you make this recipe.
Don’t use a busy life or travel-filled schedule be an excuse to thwart your fitness goals! Quick and easy recipes like this exist to help keep you on track even when on the go. Feast no bake, feast portable, and as always…FEAST ON!!!
