It looks like a big batch of sugar-laden brownies, doesn't it? These aren't brownies...these are Jamie Eason's Chocolate Protein Bars! Try them, they are delicious! Many store-bought protein bars are loaded with sugar and other artificial ingredients. Try making your own so that you have something clean to grab when you are running short on time! You can read more about when we eat these protein bars in the post about our daily food.
Chocolate Protein Bars
- 1 cup oat flour (substitute gluten free oat flour)
- 4 egg whites
- 2 scoops of vanilla protein powder
- 1/3 cup (or less) Stevia in the Raw
- 1/2 tsp baking soda
- 1/4 tsp salt
- 8 oz berry flavored baby food
- 3 tbsp baking cocoa
- 4 oz water
1. Preheat oven to 350 degrees.
2. Mix the following together in a large bowl:
- Oat Flour
- Protein Powder
- Baking Soda
- Baking Cocoa
3. Mix the following together in a small bowl:
- Egg Whites
- Stevia in the Raw
- Baby Food
4. Combine the ingredients from the small bowl into the large bowl and mix together.
5. Spray 8X8 dish (I use Pyrex) with non-stick spray & add batter to the dish.
6. Bake for 20-30 minutes in oven.
Makes 16 squares
He & She Tips: We bake ours for 23 minutes so they are "gooey" like brownies. Once the protein bars have cooled, separate them into Ziploc bags or Saran Wrap so you can grab-and-go! You MUST store these in the refrigerator or freezer as they will spoil because they have no preservatives!
