home-made protein bars

Uncategorized

I made protein bars last night for the first time in a while. They turned out delish!

Ingredients:
4    scoop vanillas protein powder
1/2 cup coconut flour
2    heaping tbsp cinnamon
1/4 tsp ground cloves
1/4 tsp nutmeg
1/2 tsp baking soda
 
2    4 oz container of apple blueberry baby food
1.5    4 oz container of water
4    egg whites and 1 whole egg
2    tbsp coconut oil
1/2  cup non-fat greek yogurt
*You can use any flavor you like and if you use unflavored just add some vanilla extract or cocoa powder.
**Also as a reminder – the original recipe (found here) had sweetener in it. I personally do not like really sweet things but if you do I would recommend adding either vanilla extract or a sweetener like honey or truvia. Otherwise this might be too bland for you.

Directions:
Preheat oven to 325.
Whisk dry ingredients together.
Whisk wet ingredients together
Fold wet ingredients into flour mixture.
Pour into a greased pan or muffin tin and bake for 15-20 minutes or until toothpick comes out clean. (I actually put parchment paper in the pan so they wouldn’t stick from the coconut flour)

It makes 16 bars so I use 2 to make the nutrients similar to this original one.
2 bars:
Calories: 165g
Carbs: 12g
Fat: 9g
Protein: 18g
I also store mine in the fridge in a large ziplock bag with a paper towel inside to absorb excess moisture without drying them out.
