New Studies show Soy Protein can be more harmful than good.

According to recent studies, Soy Protein in general can lead to increased risk of breast cancer,  increased estrogen levels in men, potential for ADHD when fed to infants and the list goes on.  On a positive note Soy Protein is shown to decrease cholesterol levels, but I think the negatives heavily outweigh the positives.  For more information on the risks of Soy Protein consumption check out this article:

NO bake homemade protein bars!

I can’t stand baking so when I found a no bake recipe for protein bars I thought I would give it a try!

Ingredients:

> 1 cup oat flour (you can just grind up the oats in a food processor, that’s what I did)
>  1cup vanilla protein powder
>  1 cup rice chex cereal
>  2 Tbsp chia seeds
>  ½ cup peanut butter
>  ¼ cup almond or regular milk
>  3 – 4 Tbsp honey, depending on sweetness preference
>  1-2 Tbsp water, if necessary
>  3 Tbsp chocolate chips, optional

Directions:

  1. In a large bowl, combine the flour, protein powder, cereal and chia seeds.
  2. In a small bowl, combine the peanut butter, milk and honey.
  3. Microwave for 30 seconds, stir and microwave 15-30 sec more.
  4. Add liquid mixture into dry ingredients and stir to combine.
  5. Add water if necessary to make sure all dry ingredients are moistened. (Mixture will be crumbly).
  6. Use parchment paper to press the mixture into an 8×8 pan (I use a 9×9 and just leave about an inch empty on one side).
  7. Freeze for 20 minute.
  8. Cut into bars (I cut mine into 8 bars).
  9. Store in an airtight container in the fridge or freezer.
  10. Melt chocolate and spread or drizzle over the bars.
