Chocolate Protein Bars

I can’t believe I haven’t shared this recipe with you yet. This was the first clean eating recipe I made last January, and it’s definitely a winner. Whenever I’m about to make these bars, and need the ingredients, I google my blog recipe page and realize – oh yeah, they’re not on here.

Well, now they are!

chocolateproteinbars3Jamie Eason’s recipes are the best. You can find the recipe for her pumpkin protein bars HERE.

I use an 8in x 8in glass Pyrex dish for this recipe.

Makes 16 bars.

Ingredients:

  • 1 cup oat flour
  • 2 scoops whey protein powder (I use chocolate)
  • 3 tbsp baking cocoa
  • ¼ tsp salt
  • 1 ½ tsp baking powder
  • ½ cup truvia or splenda
  • 4 egg whites
  • 6 oz apple sauce
  • 4 oz water

Directions:

Preheat oven to 350°F.

Mix all of the dry ingredients together in a big bowl (oat flour, protein powder, cocoa, salt, baking powder) together in a large bowl.

Stir wet ingredients (sweetener, egg whites, apple sauce, water) in with the dry.

Spray cooking dish with a non-stick spray and add batter to dish.

Bake in the oven for 30 minutes.

*****

I love to eat these as an afternoon or evening snack, and they really keep you full. Perf with some sliced strawberries [obsessed] or a glass of milk.
