Chocolate Protein Bars…recipe post

The first ones I made were the Pumpkin Protein Bars…and I LOVED them!!  Now, I cannot find canned pumpkin anywhere!  I found the Chocolate Protein Bar recipe and decided to give that one a try as well!  These  were AMAZING!!  I swear they taste like a mixture between cake and a brownie!  These do not taste like a healthy treat, they taste like an indulgence!  I usually enjoy these in the morning with an apple as part of my mid-morning snack!  So here we go:

Chocolate Protein Bars

1 cup oat flour (I grind up a cup of oatmeal to make my own flour)

2 scoops of whey protein powder

1/2 cup sweetener (agave, sucanat, or splenda brown sugar blend)

3 Tbsp raw baking cocoa powder

1/2 tsp baking soda

1/4 tsp salt

4 egg whites

1/2 cup water

1 cup no sugar added apple sauce

Preheat oven to 350 degrees.  Grind up your oatmeal to make it into a flour, then add the rest of the dry ingredients to the food processor and grind them all together.

Add in the wet ingredients and mix well.  Pour into a 9×13 baking dish sprayed with cooking spray.

Bake for 20 minutes and let cool in the pan.  Cut into 16 squares, wrap up into servings of 2 bars, and then refrigerate!  So easy and SO yummy!!

If you want an extra special treat, freeze a banana, blend it up to make banana soft serve ‘ice cream’ and serve on top!  I like to add some Wax Orchards Fudge Fantasy Sauce to the mix…oh, so good!!!
