How to Make Meal Replacement Bars


There are three reasons for using meal replacement bars: 1) Dieters use them to maintain a healthy, balanced diet while cutting calories. 2) Bodybuilders use them to maintain a healthy, balanced diet while adding calories to bulk up. 3) They're convenient when there is not enough time to prepare a regular meal. The following recipe is good for reasons number 1 and 3.

Things You'll Need

  • 3 cups rolled oats
  • ½ cup natural peanut butter
  • 1 cup skim milk
  • 4 scoops protein powder
  • Dash of cinnamon
  • 2 cups fruit (blueberries, strawberries, bananas, etc.)
  • 4 to 8 packages of Splenda (optional)
  • butter or oil
  • mixing bowl
  • 9-by-13-inch baking pan
  • Mix all the ingredients in a large mixing bowl until a sticky batter is formed.

  • Coat a 9-by-13-inch baking dish with oil, butter or margarine to prevent the bars from sticking.

  • Spoon the batter into the baking dish and spread evenly.

  • Cover with foil or waxed paper and place in the refrigerator for 3 to 4 hours.

  • Cut into eight equal portions.

Tips & Warnings

  • Homemade meal replacement bars can supplement your diet, providing protein, fiber and nutrients. You can customize the ingredients to your taste. However, meal replacement bars are not a permanent substitute for regular meals, which are a time to relax and interact with others. They should be limited to once per day, two or three times a week.
