{tute-sweet tuesday} Recipe day!

We are overly excited to have Liz here with us from Pedersen's Kitchen Diary
She seriously has been such a trooper working with us.
We asked her YESTERDAY if she'd join us for {tute-sweet tuesday},
we're a lil' *cough* un- prepared sometimes ;)
And her being her great self so graciously agreed. 
She is even out and about traveling the world!!
(and by world I mean Japan, wowza!)
She had this great recipe on her blog and it goes PERFECTLY with our 
{Exercise week}
This is a recipe that we can't Wait to try. 
You're all in for a real treat.... 
Take it away Liz!!
(aren't they just the cutest couple you've ever seen??)

Hey Everyone! I feel so honored that I get to be a part of exercise week. When Rozalynn asked if she could have my blog/recipe featured, I of course said yes! My name is Liz and I recently started my blog mainly for myself because I seem to always lose my favorite recipes and I thought this way I not only can find them easily and always have them on hand, but I can share them with friends and family. My husband is a health nut and so when I saw this protein bar recipe that was on my cousin's blog, I just HAD to try it. It is definitely a new favorite in our house because they taste like no-bake cookies, but they're LOADED with protein. I hope you all enjoy it as much as we did! :)

2 1/2 c. peanut butter (I like the natural kind because its runnier- i.e. Adams brand)
2 c. honey (I like the raw kind taste better) or agave
2 c. protein powder or powdered milk (I like the chocolate protein powder-makes it taste like no-bake cookies)
3-4 c. oats
1/4 c. wheat germ
2-4 Tbsp. ground flaxseed

Mix in bowl. Press onto a cookie sheet. Stays together better if placed in the fridge. Great healthy snack!! Enjoy!
What's YOUR favorite post-workout snack?
