Pumpkin Protein Bars
You've probably tried some of our other protein bar recipes but these Pumpkin Protein Bars are a great secret. These are an adaptation of the bars that Jamie Eason created and they are perfect for that fall snack (or really anytime during the year!).
Pumpkin Protein Bar Baking and Storing Tips:
- This Pumpkin Protein Bar recipe calls for a brown sugar blend. One of our favorites is the Truvia brown sugar blend which is a natural stevia and brown sugar blend. Half a cup provides the same sweetness as one cup of regular brown sugar.
- Use our review of clean eating protein powders to choose which one you want to bake with and avoid the unnecessary sugar and other added ingredients in most protein powder.
- As with our other protein bar recipes, this one must be stored in the refrigerator because it does not contain any preservatives.
- This recipe is a little different than our others as it makes 24 bars instead of 16. We typically eat four at a time so this recipe makes six servings.
