Homemade Protein Bars

Homemade Protein Bars

We all have those busy weeks or months at work with not much time to eat during the day. But missed meals and lack of adequate protein can cause your testosterone level and muscle mass to suffer.

This recently happened to me over the past few months. I went to the convenience store to buy protein bars as a quick fix. I was shocked to see all the garbage in the ingredients like corn syrup and soy that we know reduces testosterone! There were literally dozens of brands but all with the same junk in them.

But I still needed a way to get all my protein in without carrying a shaker bottle full of sludge around the office.

While searching for a solution, I came across this simple homemade bar recipe that bodybuilder Dave Ruel (and now friend) came up with. It’s simple and all of the ingredients are really healthy (just make sure your protein powder doesn’t have a lot of sweetener, I prefer to cook with unsweetened protein).  You can also substitute coconut milk for the 1% milk or different nuts if you’d like to experiment.

The crazy thing is these bars are a fraction of the price of store bought. I saved almost $90 in just one month making these myself compared to eating a single store bought bar each day.

Let me know how they turn out. I’m having fun experimenting and creating new variations of different flavors.
