The "Scooby Snak" Recipe

According to Rapunzel (who has now lost all of her hair), homemade protein bars are known as "Scooby Snaks". Here's a simple recipe I've found, that I think is pretty tasty.

1 1/2 cups rolled oats
2 scoops chocolate whey protein powder
2 tablespoons flaxseed meal
1 cup skim powdered milk
1/4 cup peanut butter
1/4 cup water (I needed a little bit more)
1 teaspoon vanilla
1/2 raisins or other dried fruit (I used Cranberries)

Basically, you mix all of the dry ingredients together. Mix all of the wet ingredients together and then combine the two. It makes a big sticky dough ball which you then press into a 20cm slice tray (make sure you line the tray with baking paper).

Put it in the fridge overnight or in the freezer for an hour if you're in a hurry. Cut into squares and stuff your back pockets for the Saturday morning smash sessions - just make sure you can get them out of your pockets to eat along the way!!
