Protein Snacks!

As promised, here is my recipe for protein bars/muffins.

The recipe is based off Jamie Eason’s Lemon Protein Bars, although I did modify it a bit.  If lemon isn’t your thing, I encourage you to simply Google “Jamie Eason protein bars” and you will find an array of recipes.  She has chocolate, carrot cake, pumpkin, and all kinds of flavors I have yet to try because I love these lemon ones so much!

1 C. oats or oat flour

2 scoops vanilla whey protein powder

1/4 tsp. salt (to help activate the baking soda)

1/2 tsp. baking soda

1/4 C. lemon juice (I buy the frozen containers of Minute Maid lemon juice, but fresh works best)

4 egg whites

5 packets Stevia

1 C. applesauce

2 Tbsp water

Preheat oven to 350 F.  If using oats, process in a blender or food processor until a fine powder.  Combine all dry ingredients together in a bowl, then add in the egg whites, applesauce, water, and lemon juice; the batter will be somewhat thin.  Pour into a greased 8×8 pan, or muffin tins and bake for 20-25 minutes or until set and a toothpick comes out clean.

These are best kept frozen or refrigerated.  The recipe makes 16 squares, and a serving is 2 squares but I have a hard time keeping myself from eating them all!

Give them a try, you won’t regret it!
