Mix the oats, protein powder, flax meal, honey, applesauce, brown sugar, baking soda, and vanilla extract in a bowl. Mix in the remaining ingredients. Spray a cookie sheet with non-stick spray and press the mixture into the cookie sheet. Bake at 325F for 18-20 minutes. Let cool completely and cut into 12 bars.
I made this subbing in similar ingredients when I didn't have the exact (eg LSA for Flaxmeal). I found it really dry. I think I will add a couple of TSP oil next time to moisten it up a little.
I added 2 tablespoons of low fat margarine to this receipe to make it stick together. I put it into a jelly roll pan and baked it the required time and drizzled confectioners sugar mixed with a little water on top and cut it into 24 bars. I estimate the calories at 120 for each bar.
