Ingredients

    Pears (or apples)
    3 medium-sized pears, peeled, cored, and cut into a 1/2 dice
    1/4 cup all-purpose flour
    3 TBSP packed brown sugar
    1 1/4 teaspoons ground cinnamon
    1/2 teaspoon salt

    Crumble
    1/2 cup (1 stick) unsalted butter, softened
    1/2 cup unsweetened applesauce
    1 1/2 cups whole wheat flour
    2 scoops vanilla protein powder
    1/3 cup granulated sugar
    1/2 teaspoon baking powder
    1/2 teaspoon salt
    1 large egg

    Icing
    3/4 cup powdered sugar
    2 1/2 Tbsp protein powder (1/2 scoop)
    1 1/2-2 tablespoons milk
    1/2 teaspoon vanilla extract

Directions

Preheat the oven to 350F. Lightly grease an 8~8-inch pan and line with parchment paper. Set aside.

For the pears:
Place the pears, flour, brown sugar, cinnamon, and salt into a bowl and toss to coat until the ingredients are evenly distributed. Set aside.

For the crumble:
In a large bowl, blend together the applesauce, butter, flour, protein powder, sugar, baking powder, and salt using a pastry cutter until the butter is incorporated and there are crumbs the size of peas. Add the egg and lightly stir until just incorporated.

Reserve 1 heaping cup of the crumb mixture. Pour the rest of the crumb mixture into the prepared pan and gently press the mixture into the pan to form a level crust. Next, evenly distribute the apple mixture over the crust. Sprinkle the reserved crumb mixture evenly over the apples. Bake for 60 minutes, or until the crumble is golden and the apples are soft. Remove from the oven and let cool completely in the pan.

In a small bowl, sift the powdered sugar. Add the milk, protein powder, vanilla and whisk until a creamy glaze forms. Pour the glaze into a small plastic bag. Snip off a small corner of the bag and gently squeeze and drizzle the icing over the bars. Let the icing set for about 10 minutes then serve.
