Peanut Butter Protein Bars/ tomorrow Dam to Dam 20k race

 Jess at  Blonde Ponytail had posted a recipe for Peanut Butter Protein Bars. What I liked was that the recipe only had 4 ingredients and I had all of them in my house,  so I didn't have to go buy anything.   Every morning I think I will make a protein shake, but I'm just not a breakfast eater and  I'm just to lazy to get the blender out.  I would rather just have something I can grab and go with.   

I couldn't resist

The recipe called for 2-C- peanut butter, 1 3/4 -C- honey, 1-C- oats and 2 1/4 vanilla protein powder.
I didn't have vanilla protein, but I did have chocolate flavored protein powder.  So, that is just  what I used.  I thought maybe by using chocolate flavor It might  taste like a peanut butter cup. Couldn't wait to see how it came out. 

It's hard to take a picture of myself eating the Protein Bar.  It was so YUMMY

OMG! It was better than a peanut butter cup.  Talk about good they are so yummy.  They literally tasted like a No Bake Cookie to me, which happens to be one of my faves.  I don't eat a lot of No Bake Cookies anymore, because I can't just stop at one.  When I took my first bite, I  thought I was in heaven.  Do you know how long it has been since I have had a No Bake Cookie?  One heck of a long time.   I ate one and that was enough  to satisfy me.  They are YUMMY.  
Here is the link to Jess at Blonde Ponytail for the Peanut Butter Protein Bars recipe.HERE

Tomorrow is the DAM TO DAM 20k.  I went to the Dam to Dam expo.  I was surprised that their were not more vendors there.  They did serve food though. They had sub sandwiches, assortment of chips, assortment of cookies, peanuts, m&m's. I have never been to a expo were they served food. It was great.

The shirts this year are tye  dye cotton shirts.  Check them out.

Of course I got the pink.  I was lucky and they  still had my size, but  some of the other colors were running out of different sizes.  Ya, baby I got my PINK.

                                      Are you running a race this weekend?

                         Have you made Protein Bars before?
