homemade protein Bars (Can be vegan as well)

Submitted by: SAGEAURORA

Introduction

I needed a way to give me a protein boost in the morning, that was low on the calories, and quick for me to grab on my way out. I add 1/3 cup of yogurt, but you can use more apple sauce instead, to make it vegan. makes 12 to 15 bars I needed a way to give me a protein boost in the morning, that was low on the calories, and quick for me to grab on my way out.

Ingredients

    100g of Hemp based protein Powder (I use interactive nutrition's Vegetrian Complete Protein)
    50g Soy Flour (aka soy milk powder)
    2/3 cup Applesauce, unsweetened
    1/3 cup yogurt, plain low fat or skim
    25g unsweetened coconut (not really needed but I like the flavour)
    1cup water
    1/3 cup peanut butter (or other nut butter try hazelnut)
    5 cups of a favourite cereal like corn flakes (I used my homemade cereal which has freeze dryed strawberries, dry cranberries, bran flakes, corn flakes, rolled oats, almonds, and hemp seed, just to give you an idea of other things you can add to the mix to change the flavour)

Directions

put the dry powders (protein powder, soy flour) in a large mixing bowl, slowly add the apple sauce, yogurt, and water (you may need more or less that a cup depending on your protein powder) to make a thick paste, add coconut, and peanut butter, mix, then add cereal cup but cup as you mix it in.

put in a square silicone baking pan, and bake at 350 for 20-30 mins or till golden brown.

  • I've just started baking with soy flour, it's so great for a protein boost to baked goods!! Gives them some sort of redeeming value :)

    Just to add, they do make soy yogurt, I'm sure that would work too! - 10/28/08

    You could add a sweetener if you like, I'm not really a fan of sweet things first thing in the morning, but you could try adding dried fruit, to make it sweeter. ^_^ I also like bran muffins lol
