Make Your Own Protein Nutrition Bars

By

Looking for a good protein bar recipe? This makes a meal replacement bar at a mere fraction of the cost of packaged protein bars and none of their glycerin, preservatives, or sugar, these low-fat bars are rich in fiber and taste great with a light spread of natural peanut butter across the top. Served with a protein drink, they make a well-balanced meal.
Difficulty: Easy
Time Required: 20 Minutes

Here's How:

  1. Preheat over to 325 and spray a baking sheet or 9x12 baking dish with non-stick spray. The 9x12 baking dish will yeild thicker bars.
  2. Mix oats, powdered milk, and protein powder in bowl and blend well.
  3. In separate bowl, combine eggwhites, orange juice, applesauce, and the sugar-free syrup and blend well.
  4. Stir liquid mixture into dry ingredients until blended. The consistency will be thick and similar to cookie dough.
  5. Spread batter onto pan and bake until edges are crisp and browned.
  6. Cut into 10 bars and store in airtight container or freeze.

Tips:

  1. If you find you want a moister bar, use 1/2 cup of natural applesauce.
  2. Kitchen Tip for Lowfat Baking:

    Did you know you can replace the oil in a recipe with an equal amount of applesauce? Applesauce will add the same moisture of fat but not the added calories and it won’t alter the flavor.
