Peanut Butter Protein Granola Bars


Makes 12 bars

1/2 cup of jumbo oats
1/2 cup of wheat flakes
1/2 cup of rye flakes
1/2 cup of sunflower seeds
1/2 cup of pumpkin seeds
2 scoops of protein powder
1/2 cup dried cranberries
1 cup of peanut butter
1/3 cup and 1/4 cup of honey
1 teaspoon vanilla extract

1. Preheat oven to 180 degrees. Line a baking pan with greaseproof paper or you can use a non stick pan.

2. In a large bowl, whisk together the honey, peanut butter and vanilla extract  Stir in the oats, wheat flakes, rye flakes and seeds, making sure that it is evenly mixed and all of the oats are moistened. Mix in the cranberries, protein powder and a little water until the mixture goes sticky again.

3. Turn the mixture out into the baking pan and press into the pan, making sure it is evenly distributed and tightly packed.

4. Bake for 20 minutes. Remove from the oven and cool in the fridge until the bars are firm, at least 1 hour. Remove from the pan and cut into bars. Store in an airtight container for up to 1 week.
