N is for No-bake

No-Bake Chocolate Protein Bars
6 scoops of chocolate whey protein powder
½ cup dry oat meal (uncooked)
½ cup oat flour
1 cup skim milk powder
5 tbsp natural peanut butter
1 tsp vanilla

Spray an 8×8 pan with a non-stick cooking spray.  Combine all dry ingredients.  Add peanut butter and mix well until crumbly.  Add water and vanilla.  Mix all ingredients until a sticky dough forms.  Spread the dough onto the pan with a spatula that has been sprayed with non-stick cooking spray.  Put in fridge for a few hours.  Cut into 10 squares.  Wrap up bars individually for convenient snacks.  Keep refrigerated.

Good Morning, Tina!
These sound like they would be a great breakfast bar - only I don't have a clue where to get the first item.
Have a great day!

Will have to try these, it sounds a little like a recipe I do, but less messy! (Long story, it's just a tinkery recipe...)
