I would like to make prottein bars out off chocolate flavour whey protein and also include some natural oats as the main ingreadient. Would like them to have at least 20g of protein per bar and not too much sugar or fat

WARNING!!! Do not make these on a cut; I swear to god you will eat the entire pan when you do make them, so make sure it's on a bulk or a cheat!!
Protein Bars (Jake’s)
1/3 c Chocolate protein powder
1/2 c quick oats
1/4 c dry skim milk powder
2 tbsp cocoa
12 packets sweetener*
1 tbsp low fat cream cheese
1/2 c natural peanut butter(Pb)
1/3 c black brewed coffee
about 1/4 cup skim milk
Mix dry ingredients together. Cream Pb and cream cheese together. Warm in microwave for 45 seconds -Mix in coffee. Stir dry ingredients a bit at a time into wet ingredients. Mixture will be difficult to stir, use a fork and mash it together. It'll get crumbly. Now add milk, a few drops at a time and mix well after each addition. I think I used about 1/4 cup, but not sure. You want a gooey, kind of crumbly texture. Press into pan sprayed with Pam and set in fridge. Makes 8 bars.
***Each bar has: 80.5 calories - 3.9 *Protein - 7 carbs - 4.2 fat
***The above breakdown does not include the protein powder, because everyone uses a different powder, I just broke down the other ingredients. Make sure you add your own protein powder breakdown to the counts to get the true numbers!
*I used Equal, you can use whatever you normally use or none at all if you like, especially if your protein powder is sweet. Replace the coffee w/ a tbsp of cream diluted w/ water to the required amt. I used flavored coffee, so you might want to add an extract for flavor...almond or vanilla...
You can also and raisins and/or chopped nuts for variation

Hey thanks for that I will definately give it a go. Its just what I was looking for. I will skip the sweetners first time to see what its like. I think Ill also add some peanuts in the mix too and possibly the raisens you mentioned.
P.S. If theres anymore recipes along these lines I would appreciate them also just to make a few diff ones. thanks

I found this recipe seem really easy to make.....
It is so simple-
takes about 10 minutes max to make 1
I use 1 bar of wheetabix- I prefer this to oatmeal
1 scoop of whey protein
1 tbl honey
1 tbl peanut butter
mix all together in a bowl, it will be a little dry/ powdery but just add very small amounts of skim milk or water so that the consistency is firm, similar to a flapjack or such like
You can then shape the bar with a cooks knife really easy by pressing down on it firmly and cutting it to the desired shape
The weight of the bar is usually about 100g and I assure you, they are filling and take a few minutes to eat through!
