Gingerbread Protein Bars

Earlier this week I tried to make some Gingersneezes gluten free, refined sugar free cookies, after them turning into more of a holiday fail cookie and being thoroughly disappointed in my attempt I decided that I would try my hand at another protein bar recipe with a holiday twist. They unlike the holiday Gingersneezes cookie turn out fabulous!

Gingerbread Protein Bars

GingerbreadServes: 9

2 cups Old Fashioned Oats
2 scoops Chocolate Protein Powder
2 tsp Cinnamon
3 tsp Ginger
½ tsp Nutmeg
¼ cup ground chia seed.
1 egg
½ cup unsweetened Organic Apple Sauce
¼ cup Dark Old Fashioned Molasses
1 tsp vanilla

Directions:

  1. Preheat oven to 350 degrees. Line an 11×7 casserole dish with parchment paper.
  2. In a large bowl combine oats, protein, cinnamon, ginger, nutmeg and chia seeds.
  3. In a medium bowl combine egg, apple sauce, molasses and vanilla, stir together.
  4. Fold liquid mixture into the oats. Stir until all the oats are completely covered in the molasses mixture.
  5. Transfer mixture into the casserole dish; ensure oats are spread evenly in the dish.
  6. Place in oven for 25-30minutes until they begin to harden, be careful not to overcook or the bars will become very hard.
  7. Remove from oven and allow to cool for 10-15minutes, cut into bars before the dish has completely cooled, and ENJOY.

This snack is perfect to take with you as a post gym snack especially if you are pumping some iron these little guys are packed with protein. They are also great as a grab and go breakfast.

Hope everyone is having a great Friday!
