How to Prepare:

  1. Mix oats, protein powder, and peanut butter in a bowl.
  2. Slowly add the water as you mix the contents.  If the contents are too dry you can add a small amount of additional water or peanut butter.  Avoid using too much water as this will make the bars soggy.
  3. When the ingredients are thoroughly mixed, pour the contents into your 8 inch by 8 inch pan and press the mixture into the shape of the pan.
  4. Refrigerate the contents for one hour to let the mixture set up.
  5. Cut into 2 inch by 2 inch squares.
  6. Enjoy!
