No bake Chocolate Banana Oat bars!

Sometimes you just don’t want to turn the oven on. Sometimes you don’t want to have to deal with multiple bowls, utensils, and all the other usual hustle and bustle there is with baking. ¬†I was in that mood today so I decided I would make something no bake and use the freezer instead of the oven.¬†

In this recipe we are going back to all the great flavor combinations. I put banana, peanut butter, chocolate, honey, and oats all into one dense, chewy, power packed protein treat. IMG_2596

Bar Ingredients:

320g Old Fashion Oats

3 Scoops Muscletech Vanilla Whey

35g Powdered  Peanut Butter

14g Coconut Oil melted

30g Honey

350g Banana (mashed)

Pinch of sea salt (optional)

 Chocolate Layer Ingredients:

22g Chocolate Muscletech Whey 

14g Melted Coconut oil

48g Melted Chocolate Chips

35g Powdered Peant butter

30g-50g Walden Farms 0 cal Chocolate Syrup  

Instructions:

1. In a food processor place in all of your bar ingredients and blend until combined.  

2. Once blended together, pour batter into a 8×8 or 9×9 pan that has been sprayed and lined with parchment paper. Spread evenly.¬†

3. In a separate bowl combine all of your chocolate topping ingredients and mix. To melt chocolate chips the quick way, just put your oil in a small bowl with them and microwave in short bursts till melted. Some new microwaved even have melt options! 

4. Pour Chocolate topping over the oat layer spreading evenly. 

5. Place in freezer for at least 2 hours, but I waited a good 6 before cracking into mine! 

6. Cut into 9 squares and enjoy! I like them cold right out of the freezer! They are fantastic with some peanut butter spread over them!

@phorosnutrition Protein pancake review.
.
1/2 cup svg – 220cal / 3f / 18c / 30p/ 2 fiber
.
.
First off, went to make 2 svgs as it directs a cup of water, but that was to much liquid so I had to add in another half svg to thicken it up. Good looking pancakes after cooked for the most part, but not extremely fluffy, and they cook fast. Definitely not a pancake I would eat plain, but with a good syrup it doesn’t taste bad. It’s a bit dry of a cake, that could be either from the oat Flour, or whey concentrate, and the cake itself could use a bit more base flavor. Macros for the cakes themselves are pretty solid, and similar to brands like¬†@flapjacked¬†, but these are slightly lower carb and higher protein. Yield for a batch is also pretty similar to competitors as well. 2-4 cakes per svg depending on size. Ingredient list is fairly short as only 6 things listed, so you know everything going in which is a plus. Worth mentioning that this blend is 0 sugar! .
.
Overall I gotta go with a 6/10. Macros are good, but taste needs improvement.

GNC Lemon Meringue Lean Bar

I think GNC definitely had summer flavors in mind when creating this guy. Lemon is a perfect flavor choice in the warm months as it’s usually lite, refreshing, and delicious. Read below to see if GNC was able to get it right!

@gnclivewell¬†lemon meringue bar review –
170 cal / 6f / 21c / 15p
Decent macro split here with this bar. Protein could be a bit higher but as long as it’s at least 15 I’m usually happy. Very nice lemon smell to this bar, and has a almost fluorescent yellow rice crispy looking bar with a vanilla dipped bottom. Pretty solid lemon flavor here without being to overpowering. You don’t really get any meringue with this bar unfortunately. Really wasn’t sure how they were going to pull that off. It consistency is very similar to a rice crispy or a cereal bar with just a slight dry grainy finish. Every with that said it’s still an enjoyable eat, and if I remember correctly they have a decent price point.
Overall – 6.5/10

@one1brands¬†maple glazed donut bar review –
220 cal / 8f / 24c / 20p –
60g bar weight so standard but seemed short and small to me for some reason. Doughnut filling with a maple Glaze that really does give off a strong maple flavor that I enjoyed. Bar has a nice chew but no real texture support. The only flavor I get with this bar is maple and wouldn’t know it’s a ‘doughnut’ bar. Maple is a bit artificial tasting but passable, and does chew smooth as it melts in your mouth. I did find it finished a bit dry, and a tad grainy the more you chew it. Macros on the bar are pretty standard, so I’m not complaining there.
Overall – 7/10
