Preheat oven to 350 degrees F.
I use food processor with a blade. It turns the rolled oats into flour.

Mix well and slowly add the skim milk.
Once mixed spoon or pour into a greased or parchment lined 9 x 9" cake pan.
Smooth with a knife.
Bake for 15 or 20 minutes or until toothpick comes out clean.
Cut into 8 bars when cooled.
I wrap individual bars in saran wrap and store in a ziplock bag in the refridgerator. Good snack for on the road or after your workout.

    Nutritional information is for the whole recipe. Need to edit the recipe and put in how many servings. Then it will calculate correctly per serving. - 1/20/11

    These were very good. Almost like eating a brownie. I added 1 semisweet morsel on top of each square which made them even better. - 5/18/09

  • After buyig some high-priced protein bars the thought entered my mind to make my own. I can use the flavors and ingredients that I like/need and help me to clean out the cupboard of spices and flours that don't get used enough and then there is saving time and money. - 9/20/13

  • When I converted the recipe, I got
    7oz oats
    3.5 oz of milk
    which made the batter SOOO thin.
    So I altered the recipe to be
    1 cup Grams Rolled Oats
    2 tbsp Protein Powder
    3 Tbsps PB
    And baked it an extra 20 minutes. http://somewhatgourmet.blogspot.com/2012/0

  • These are awesome! I have had a jar of brown rice protein powder that is just icky. This recipe is the first I have found that you can't taste the nasty chalk flavor. I added 2 tbl of carob powder + 1 tsp instant coffee toake the carob pop. They passed the 5 year old test :) thanks - 9/21/10

  • I made up a batch of these today and the flavor is great! Unfortunately I didn't bake them quite long enough so the middle bars were still a little doughy and stuck to the wax paper. I'll be making them again for sure! Even the pick hubby liked them.... just don't tell him it's a "protein bar" - 8/29/10

  • Tasty, but perhaps you need to take a look at the calorie content. Don't believe that is quite accurate. :0) - 7/14/10

  • I was feeling lazy so whipped the whole recipe up in my food processor, to which I received the response, "You're done baking already? Wow, fast." These are fast and delicious! I sprinkled coconut flakes over the dough which was a nice addition. My apartment smells great now, thanks! - 1/10/10

  • These were tasty. I'm always on the lookout for granola/protein bar recipes. I didn't have chocolate protein powder so I used cinnamon oatmeal flavor. Yum! - 5/16/09
