Raise your hand if life has been crazy busy for you lately! If you didn’t raise your hand, can you please teach me your ways? It seems like I’m always ranting about how busy life is and being on-the-go all the time, but you guys, the struggle is REAL. Maybe one day I’ll just accept the fact that as much as I’d like to be, I’m not a slow pace type of girl! If your schedule is madness like mine, then this post is just for you, sis. Today we’re talking No-Bake Oatmeal Protein Bars and what I take with me in my go bag, like LIFEWTR, found at 7-Eleven!
So by “go bag,” I really mean purse. Sometimes it’s my camera bag or gym bag, but mostly it’s my purse. Aside from basic things like keys and wallet, you will always find lip gloss and a miniature bottle of lotion in there because NECESSARY (obvs). On days where I have several back-to-back errands to run, taking snacks and a water bottle is crucial! We’ll talk about those delicious No-Bake Oatmeal Protein Bars in a sec, but let’s talk hydration first. I might be a little bit obsessed with my latest discovery. Have you guys tried LIFEWTR at 7-Eleven?
Y’ALL. Let’s talk about this. 1. The bottles each come in a 1 liter size, which means you can stay hydrated all day and through hours of errands. This is especially amazing for me as summer in the south is quickly approaching! (There is also a 700mL size.) 2. LIFEWTR tastes amazing – pH balanced, and so refreshing. 3. Just look at these beautiful and creative bottle designs!
Like I said…obsessed. I love how inspirational the LIFEWTR bottles are and the fact that I can head to 7-Eleven, grab a few of them, and take them everywhere with me. So easy and WINNING, ya know? If you’re looking for ways to stay hydrated and inspired while you’re on-the-go, be sure to swing by 7-Eleven and grab a bottle of LIFEWTR!
I also keep protein or granola bars in my go bag at all times, but especially on days when I’ll be out running errands. Sometimes I just buy bars from the store, but I also love making my own. These are especially easy to make!
Here’s a quick tutorial on how to make No-Bake Oatmeal Protein Bars:
No-Bake Oatmeal Protein Bars
Refined Sugar Free, Gluten Free
- 2 cups rolled oats
- 3/4 cup almond butter
- 1/4 cup honey
- 1/4 cup protien powder
- 1/4 cup chocolate chips
Place the almond butter and honey in the microwave for about 10-15 seconds (or until softened). Mix together.
Mix the rolled oats and protein powder together in a mixing bowl. Add in the softened almond butter and honey. Mix thoroughly and evenly.
Mix in the chocolate chips. Place the entire mixture in an 8x8 or 10x10 cake pan covered with wax paper. Freeze for about 20-30 minutes.
Cut into small bars, package in sandwich bags, and take on-the-go!
To keep the bars from crumbling, ensure that the almond butter used is firm and doesn't contain oil separation.
