These bars are cheap, easy to make, taste great and are an ideal snack for those of you short on time. Just grab one, put it in a ziplock bag and throw it in your purse. You always want to have something healthy on hand when you are out and about to avoid reaching for something unhealthy when hunger strikes.
2 cups traditional oats
3 scoops of protein powder (I used 1 1/2 scoops of both Optimum Nutrition 100% natural casein and whey)
