Fat Loss Foods - 5 Steps To Homemade Protein Bars

One of the most important things to consider when selecting the right fat loss foods is convenience. You want to know exactly what you are eating and don't want to spend hours in the kitchen preparing it. I have the solution for you right here: Follow these 5 steps and you will be making your own homemade and customized protein bars in no time!

1. Protein Powder + Flour - First you will have to select your protein powder and flour. I prefer to use plain protein powder, as you can then flavour it to your own liking. When selecting the flour, be sure to pick one that can be eaten raw, such as coconut flour or almond flour. However, this is up to you.

2. Bind the Powder and Flour - You will be using milk as the binding agent. You again have a lot of choice when it comes to what kind of milk to use: Anything from regular cow's milk through to nut milks. The goal here is to end up with a dough-like consistency that can then be used to shape the bars using your hands.

3. Shape the Mixture - After you have achieved the right consistency, you can begin to shape the bars into whatever shape you desire. The key here is to not to let the mixture get either too dry or too wet. However, if the mixture does become too dry, add more milk, and if it becomes too wet, add more flour.

4. Add Chocolate - You will want to melt the chocolate beforehand and leave in a bowl. Simply dip your bar into the chocolate until it is completely covered. It is best to use dark chocolate here, as you will have the added health benefits of the antioxidants, but this is up to you also.

5. Place in Freezer - Put the protein bars in the freezer for a minimum of 30 minutes and they will be ready to go: That's it. I bet you see now how easy this is to make and why it is one of my favourite fat loss foods. From start to finish, you should be finished and eating well within an hour.

I strongly encourage you to try this recipe out for yourself. There are tons of variations that you can try out and experiment with until you find the protein bar that is perfect for you. Until next time, keep eating plenty of fat loss foods and keep active.
