Homemade Protein Bars: 2 c. Uncooked old fashion/quick oats 1/2 c. natural peanut butter (I softened 1 min in microwave) 4 scoops Protein Powder (I used chocolate Muscle Milk) 4 T. Milled Flax seed (I didn't have any so omitted them..lol) 1/2 c. Water 1 threw in a tablespoon of mini chocolate chips & unsweetened coconut flakes. I also added about 1T local honey but you could use splenda,stevia or agave. Mix well & press into an 8x8 sprayed pan (you may need to wet your fingers to do this) until even. Place in fridge for 1/2 hr. Cut into 8 even bars and wrap in plastic wrap (I put mine into individual snack bags). Each bar : 192 calories|16g carbs|8g fat|15g protein|3g fiber The nutritional facts may be slightly off because of the changes I made.
Is it Sugar Free?-I would have to have sugar free as I am diabetic. I know that it will be quite a while after the surgery before I can try a recipe like that(a tiny bite) and it will have to be sugar free at that.
I am looking for especially recipes to write down that I could use in my early weeks and on after the surgery.

I think this is an old Weight Watchers recipe - can of crushed pineapple in juice added to a box of dry angel food cake mix. Bake in 9 x 13 and when cool or as being served - add sugar free Cool Whip. I usually just try to eat small portions of healthier food, as opposed to diet recipes. Have a great holiday season.
