I love eating a good protein bar, but I always find myself wondering why those tiny little bars have so many calories and are high in fat.
It’s the nuts I tell ya! While nuts are high in protein they are also high in fat, and I never just eat a handful of nuts or just one protein bar.
Cinnamon raisin proteins bars are pretty high in protein, thanks to the oat bran, protein powder, and egg. Instead of just having one tiny bar I can enjoy two!
Cinnamon Raisin Protein Bars Recipe:
1 ½ cups rolled oats
1 cup oat bran
½ cup sugar (I used coconut)
½ tbsp. cinnamon
1 scoop protein powder (I used raw protein)
½ cup apple sauce
½ cup egg whites
1 cup raisins
Recipe Directions: Preheat oven to 350 degrees; grease an 8*8 inch baking pan and line it with parchment paper. In a large bowl mix the dry ingredients; add apple sauce and egg whites to dry ingredients. Stir until the mixture is moist. Fold raisins into the mixture until they are mixed in. Place mixture into baking pan and press down firmly. Place in the oven for 30 minutes or until the top is firm to the touch. Let cool, cut into bars and store in a air tight container.
