Why healthy high protein bars is a must have for any weight loss plan?

Simply put, you weight loss or muscle gain plan is much more likely to fail when you don’t have proper foods readily available for you to eat at a snack or meal time. Most of the people, though, hate to plan and cook in advance. So when the time comes to eat, nothing healthy is available. They either skip the meal or buy something unhealthy or something that is too high in sugar. By the way, most of the commercially available energy bars provide way too much sugar in its most unhealthy form. Weight loss slows down. People lose motivation and start cheating more, feel guilty and abandon weight loss plan all together once again.

If you make your own healthy high protein oatmeal bars in advance and have them with you wherever you go, then it is easier for you to stick to your diet. It will take you 10 minutes to prepare 12 bars for a week, which can be 12 snacks for an average woman on 1500 or 1200 calorie diet . They can also serve as both pre-workout and post-workout snacks, and thus cover 4 resistance training workouts ( 1 bar prior, 2 bars after) which is typically maximum you should do in a week anyway.

I found this recipe on the Sarah Fit Blog . They were baked, but I decided that there is no reason why I cannot make a high protein bar using a dehydrator. I changed the recipe a little bit, and the bars still came out really tasty. As you will see, my variation includes flax meal and almonds, which both are a part of LSA mix that provides healthy fats and proteins to your diet.


  • 1 cup Unsweetened Vanilla Almond Milk (may use regular milk, coconut milk, soy milk)
  • 2 tbsp honey
  • 2 tbsp flax meal
  • 1 banana
  • 1 1/2 cup of old fashioned rolled oats
  • 1/2 cup almond meal or grated almonds
  • 3 tbsp shredded coconut
  • 2 tsp cinnamon
  • 2 servings Vega Sport Vanilla or any other VEGA protein product
  • 1/4 cup almonds
  • 1/4 cup raisins

  1. Mix oatmeal and flax meal with almond milk and let is soak while you prepare other ingredients
  2. Using a fork, mash banana and put it on top of the oatmeal mix
  3. Mix all other ingredients. If you have whole almonds, you can grate them using Vitamix or just a roller pin.
  4. Add dry mix to the soaking oatmeal, banana and flax, and mix well
  5. Spread the mixture over Excalibur dehydrator flexsheet, about 1/4 inch thick
  6. Make cuts to separate it into 12 bars
  7. Place into the dehydrator at 63 degrees Celsium (165 F) for about 12 hours.
  8. (optional)Flip the bars about 3 hours after dehydrating start. To flip the bars, pull the plastic sheet from under the flax sheet, cover your bars, and turn upside down. You will see that they are still wet on the bottom which now becomes top. Remove flax sheet and place bars back into the dehydrator
