Scooby Poo-Bars

Healthy Meal Replacement Bars for Students And Other Busy People

Most of you understand that for gaining muscle its very important to have frequent small well balanced meals but many of you are too busy to cook 6 meals a day. These protein bars are quick and easy to make and they taste great too! Lets get this out of the way right now – YES, these protein bars look gross – They look like Poooo! They’re Poo-Bars! These 100% natural homemade protein bars are not only way cheaper than any protein bars you can buy, they are WAY healthier too! These meal replacement bars are easy to make and convenient to eat between classes or on the job. They are true meal replacement bars and each is a well balanced meal having fruit, vegetables, protein, fiber, complex carbs and omega III fatty acids.

These are meal replacement bars, don’t overuse them! These Poo-Bars are infinitely better than fast food or something out of the vending machine but not nearly as good as one of my quick healthy meals. If you like this recipe please try my ScoobySnak Bars too! If you want more protein bar recipes, consider buying the excellent bodybuilding cookbook that I reviewed.

Who wants Scooby-Poo? I do! I do!

I’m not making this up, this recipe is as fun to make as it is to eat. No cooking, no cutting, and its not that critical that you measure things. In short, its something that even I can make! You don’t need any kitchen gadgets, just a big mixing bowl. You don’t even need a kitchen to make these, you can do it in your dorm room if you want!

OK, ready for the instructions? Its pretty complicated!

  1. Dump everything in a bowl and squish it together with your hands. Only put about half the milk in to start and only add milk enough to wet the ingredients, it should be like concrete, not batter. Do NOT use a spoon, you will break it.
  2. Roll dough in your hands to make 15 poo shaped bars. This dough doesn’t stick to your hands like the ScoobySnak bars do, no idea why.
  3. Roll them in ground flax
  4. Put in refrigerator, cool 30-120 minutes before eating.

Store them in a covered container in the refrigerator, they keep a week. You can also store them covered in your freezer, they keep for months there!

No more excuses for not eating healthy on the go, at work, or at school!!!

  1. Scooby, why are the bars so sticky? Could you share with us what brand of oats you use? I used instant rolled oats – could this be the problem? THANKS!

  2. Just tried making these myself, they were really sticky to me making them. I think I messed up on it though and poured the flax in the mix instead of rolling…ooppps. Although it tastes amazing, looking forward to seeing what it looks like after I get them out of the fridge. I work in hard labor so this is great for me!

  3. Brilliant recipe. I’m making these to take on my upcoming trip. They will keep me out of trouble when I’m faced with nothing but fast food options.

  4. Not quite sure why there are no comments showing, given the industry created around healthy eating, weight loss and the mystical 6 pack abs. This is a gem of public domain information, good data and once I get the right protein/jam combo happening – great tasting. Thanks for the share . . . .

  5. If you place the dough inside a zip bag, put it in the freezer with a heavy book on top, you can then cut them into proper cuboids.

  6. I am a busy student and I only have about 4 minutes to eat at lunch….proteins bars are so expensive…I'm broke now…! But with these Scooby Poo-bars, I'll get big and rich at the same time!!! ^^ Thank you very much.

  7. Thanks Scooby
    Thanks for all the effort you put into Informing people like us. your effort to help others shows.

    hopefully I can figure out how to stop over training now.

    like the scooby pooh bars idea. I bet I will give it a try.

  8. I've been making batches of these for the past few weeks and they're great. They definitely look like dog turds before the flax stage though!

    If the mixture is too powdery, add a small amount of extra milk and it soon gets sticky.

  9. I tried making the last ones and there was way too much powder (i followed the directions closely) and was not sticky at all.

    Was just a powdery mess. Anyone else have this problem?

    Also I use flavourless natural protein powder so I'm probably only going to put in a couple of cups next time. Cheers.

  10. @Majid, you call it a statement? I was obviously being facetious… that's called making a joke not being serious :P

  11. @ gareth you call it marketing? he is providing everything for free.. thats called giveaways not sellings

  12. Is there a cheaper substitute I can use to replace the protein powder? I'd be willing to use beans or lentils instead regardless of taste.

  13. Hey Scooby,

    Here's something that I've been wondering about. As of late, I've gotten into fruit-sweetening my homemade food. One way that I do it is by grinding up dried fruit (like prunes) with a small amount of water. I grind it with the blender into a smooth paste. So sometimes, instead of honey or maple syrup (which is much healthier than it's given credit for), I use fruit. What's your take on this?
