Pumpkin Protein Bars

Ingredients

Instructions

  • 1 1⁄2 cups oat flour
  • 1⁄2 cup old fashioned oats
  • 1 cup vanilla protein powder
  • 1 teaspoon baking powder
  • 1 teaspoon baking soda
  • 1⁄2 teaspoon salt
  • 1 tablespoon pumpkin pie spice
  • 1⁄2 cup blackstrap molasses
  • 1 cup canned pumpkin
  • 1⁄2 cup unsweetened applesauce
  • 1 teaspoon vanilla
  • Splash of almond milk
  • 10 drops liquid stevia
  1. Preheat oven to 350°F.
  2. Spray a 9 X 13 glass Pyrex dish with non stick spray.
  3. Stir together the dry ingredients including flour, oats, protein powder, baking powder, baking soda and pumpkin pie spice.
  4. In a separate bowl, combine the wet ingredients including the molasses, pumpkin, applesauce, almond milk, vanilla and stevia.
  5. Gently stir the dry mixture into the wet ingredients and stir until well combined. The batter tends to be kind of thick by the end so stir hard. If it’s too thick, you can add a splash more of the almond milk.
  6. Spread batter evenly into the 9 X 13 dish and bake for about 20 minutes.
