No-Bake Protein Bars

2 cups of uncooked, fast-cooking oatmeal
½ cup natural peanut butter or almond butter
4 scoops of protein powder (I used Muscle Milk Light, chocolate. Vanilla or Banana would work, too)
1 Tbsp. ground flaxseeds
1 Tbsp. cinnamon
½ cup water


  1. In a large bowl, knead all the ingredients together with your hands until it forms a dough.
  2. Line a square 8-inch pan with wax paper and press the dough into it using your fingers. If desired, spread a thin layer of the peanut or almond butter on top.
  3. Freeze for 30 minutes. Remove and cut into 8 squares. Wrap individually, and refreeze or store in the refrigerator.
