Ginger Cinnamon Protein Bars!

Protein bars are a part of my every day diet, so making sure I have an option that is high in protein, moderate in carbs and LOW in sugar is crucial to keeping my eating plan on track — and these home made treats are rewarding and satisfying, without being a ‘glorified candy bar’ like store bought protein bars┬áBelieving that credit should always be given where it is due, this recipe was inspired by Jamie Eason’s protein bar recipes, which I highly recommend. She has some wonderful flavors!

Ginger-Cinnamon Protein Bars

  • 1 cup oat flour (Blended oats)
  • 2 scoops vanilla whey protein
  • 1/4 tsp salt
  • 1/2 tsp baking soda
  • 4 egg whites
  • 6 oz baby food applesauce
  • 4 oz water
  • ~2 tbsp each of cinnamon and ginger (to taste, I like lots)
  • Optional: crushed walnuts or almonds
    Optional: 1/2 cup of preferred no sugar sweetener
Note: I often make a double batch of these; as a serving size is two ‘muffins’, they go very quickly in my house.
These can be baked in a cake tin, but I prefer to do mine in a muffin/cupcake pan. I find they cook more evenly this way, and are perfectly portion sized!
Directions
  • Pre-heat oven to 350 degrees F
  • Mix wet and dry ingredients separately, mix thoroughly
  • Combine ingredients, add optional nuts if desired.
  • If using a muffin tin, line with cupcake holders or a very thin coating of olive oil to prevent stick.
  • Place thoroughly mixed ingredients in the cake pan or muffin tin
  • Let bake for 20 minutes, then perform a quick check to ensure they are cooking through. Cook for another 5-10 minutes as needed.
  • Let cool before removing from pan or cutting.
  • Enjoy!

**Stick these in the fridge! They CAN, and WILL go bad otherwise. Remember, there are no preservatives!
