protein bar

Submitted by: APRILFIREFLY


Number of Servings: 10

Ingredients

    4 oz plai or flavored soy or whey protein

    1/2 cup unbleached all-purpose flour

    2 cups rolled oats

    10 packets of Stevia Plus (natural sweetener from plants)

    1/2 teaspoon cinnamon

    1 cup raisins or mini-chocolate chips

    6 oz nonfat plain yogurt (may need more)

    6 oz nonfat Greek yogurt

    1/4 cup applesauce

    2 teaspoons vanilla extract

Directions

# Preheat the oven to 350 degrees F (325 degrees F for a glass pan). Lightly spray a 9- by 13- inch baking pan and a baking tray with nonstick spray.

# Mix together the protein powder, flour, oats, wheat germ, and cinnamon in a large bowl. Add in the Stevia. Stir in the raisins or chocolate.

# Measure the yogurt, applesauce, and vanilla into a second bowl, stirring until well combined. Add the wet mixture to the dry, and mix patiently until thoroughly blended. (You may have to use your hands -- it will be a thick batter, verging on a dough. If you need to add more yogurt, please do so.)

# Transfer the mixture to the prepared pan, patting it evenly into place with your hands. Bake in the center of the oven for 15 minutes (or until firm enough to cut without crumbling apart), then remove from the oven and cut into bars of any size or shape. Place the bars on the prepared baking tray and bake for another 15 minutes, or until golden around the edges. (For extra-crunchy bars, turn off the oven and leave them in there for up to 45 minutes longer.) Remove the bars from the oven, and place them on a rack to cool.

# Eat the bars within a few hours, or seal them in a heavy zip-style plastic bag and store in the freezer. For maximum crispness, "refresh" them in a toaster oven after defrosting.
