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!
Jamie 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.
- 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
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.
I think they expand in your stomach or something.
Thanks as always to Jenn @ Peas and Crayons for hosting What I Ate Wednesday!

Those look tasty! I would probably use regular sugar but even if I did, they would still count as “healthy” in my books. Thanks for sharing!
Maybe I’ll use regular sugar next time. It would be great to cut the sugar out completely. I’ll have to figure out a good substitute! Maybe agave nectar?
these look delicious!
I’m not sure they’d be able to last around our home… and I’d be the only one eating them 🙂
Haha, that’s about how long they last around here too.
anything that involves chocolate in protein form is bound to be good!
