I'm finding it super-hard to get to 5000 cals if I want to sleep early. I'm usually done eating at 12:00, go to sleep at 1:00.

I want to reduce this by having a high caloric bar or two sometime during the day, so anyone got any recipes?

sorry no recipe for a bar, but why aren't you eating for the last hour before bed if you're bulking? and 5K daily is a ton... you must have incredibly high metabolism

Not a ton of calories but I like the taste of this one, and its EASY

1 cup Natural peanut butter
8 tablespoons honey
1&1/4 cups whey protein powder
1 cup of uncooked oatmeal

Mix the pb and honey in a bowl, microwave on full for 80 secs. Add the rest and mix together (get your hands in man!!) ADD A SPLASH OF MILK IF OVERLY DRY!!! but will be somewhat dry in bowl Can add raisins/nuts etc to taste. Firmly press into 8x8 tray and leave for 20 mins. Cut into 8 to 10 equal bars and wrap and store in fridge!!

Approx Nutrition values of entire recipe.
2800 calories
175 gr protien
200 gr carbs
145 gr fat

can you add more protein powder without ruining the taste/consistency of the bars?

Thanks for the great recipe Genacide! I made 'em up with Strawberry powder and they are fantastic. Even my girlfriend snagged a few for her lunchbox. These are going to become a staple in my diet.

Most people that try them like them a lot!

More protein will make them fall apart easier, their is a bunch of protein in them already.

hmm, I had strawberry protien but thought it might taste horrible in there. i guess ill try strawberry. Vanilla was very good though.

i've been using chocolate soy protein. they are soo ****ing good. every time i go to the fridge i try to convince myself it's okay to have one instead of a 'real' meal, even though they're 30/25/45 carbs/protein/fat

i wonder if they'd hold if you subbed in more protein powder instead of some pb? or maybe if you used low fat pb to even out the ratios a little more?

I was going to attempt this recipe, sounds good. When figuring the Nutritional values for what I yield is it just simple math down the line of all the ingredients or does it alter when everything is mixed, in other words..is there anyway to find the EXACT Nutrition Values in the recipe I yield when I make these bars. :scratch:

excellent recipe, im eager to try it out. Out of curiosity though does anyone have a higher calorie count bar? I remember someone posting a recipe of some 600+ calorie bar awhile ago but I havnt been able to find it.

pruneman

if you just use that recipe and cut it into 8 bars, then 2 bars equals 700cals.

what can i use for protein instead of protein powder?

pruneman
03-24-2005, 07:23 AM
I imagine you could use some combination of egg whites, cottage cheese, or cream cheese. Protein Powder, however, would in most cases be considerably cheaper than most of the other options.

why can't you use protein powder? i guess dehydrated milk wouldn't be too bad. i think it needs to be powdered something tho, because the consistency would get messed up i think. coudl be wrong, i don't make them my gf does.

Ingredients:

1 stick butter or 1/2 cup margarine
2 cups sugar (yes 2 cups ****er)
1/2 cup cocoa
1/2 cup milk
2 and 1/2 cup quick-cooking oats (quick oats aka oatmeal lol)
1 tsp. vanilla
2 scoops protein

Optional Ingredients:

1/2 Cup finely chopped nuts (yuck)
1/2 cup creamy peanut butter (more calories! yay!)

Directions:

Bring butter, milk, sugar, and cocoa to a rolling boil. Be sure to break up the clumped cocoa and keep stirring, don't let it sit, or it'll stick to the pot and burn, the cocoa that is. Once boiling remove from heat, and blend in vanilla, protein, and oats...any other 'optional ingredients'. Drop by teaspoonfuls onto waxed paper and let cool. I drop them by big spoonfuls, so they are bigger cookies. I also don't let them cool all the way, they are better a little chewy, although they willl harden out and be just as tasty.

People, like myself, say this because some wake up with a lot of acid in their throat and a gut wrenching feeling in their stomach. If it doesn't happen to you then go for it.
