Make Your Own High Protein Healthy Bars

Thread starter #1
Healthy Protein Bars
Makes anywhere between 10-20 bars, depending upon how big you cut them
Ingredients:
2 cups peanut butter (or almond butter)
1 3/4 cups raw honey (or use agave-low glycemic)
2 1/4 cups protein powder (chocolate tastes best with this one)
3 cups regular oatmeal
1 tbls cinnamon
1/2 cup almond slivers
9 x 13 inch pan
Preparation:
Microwave almond (or peanut) butter and honey until smooth. Stir.
In another bowl, mix the rest of the dry ingredients.
Add the almond (or peanut) butter and honey. Mix with hands (It’s way easier that way!)
Press the mixture into the pan and place in fridge. Keep in fridge for at least an hour

Very good recipe, Im hooked! I use a natural chunky style peanut butter, It adds some additional nut factor, and tasty too!

Interesting. I was wondering about making my own bars. High calories though. I think 2 cups of peanut butter has about 3000 calories. The honey about 1800 calories. These two items alone are ~4800. Divide by 15 bars is about 319 calories per bar for just these two ingredients. About 400 calories per bar total with the other stuff. I bet they are good though. Do you think I could cut back on the peanut butter and honey?

Yes but would the decreased SHBG offset the dramatically lower testosterone levels on a 25-30 percent protein diet. Also, if SHBG declines with a high protein diet, you would also have higher free estradiol levels.

Men on trt would not have to worry about higher protein lowering testosterone.....now for a natty man excess protein along with a low fat diet would have a negative impact on testosterone levels.

Regarding nutrition extreme dieting (too much of a calorie deficit), or low fat diets would have be detrimental to testosterone production.
