Pumpkin Protein Bars

Today's Mid-Morning "meal" was QUITE DELICIOUS!

Vanilla Chai tea with (4) Pumpkin Protein Bars. There were 4, but as soon as I put them on the plate, I couldn't help myself and devoured the first one immediately!

Jamie Eason's Pumpkin Protein Bars

1/2 C brown sugar blend
1 4oz. jar baby food applesauce
2 tsp. ground cinnamon
1 1/2 tsp. ground ginger
1/2 tsp. ground clove
1 tsp. baking powder
1/2 tsp. salt
2 tsp. vanilla extract
4 large egg whites
1 15oz. can of raw pumpkin
2 C oat flour
2 scoops vanilla whey protein
1/2 C almond milk
1/2 C chopped walnuts (optional)

preheat oven 350 degrees F. Spray 9x13 dish w/ non-stick spray.

Combine first 11 ingredients and mix well.

Add the final 3 ingredients (or 4 if you're adding walnuts) and mix until well blended.

Spread the batter into the 9x13 dish and bake for 30 min.

Makes 24 squares

This nutritional fact sheet isn't exactly correct, The Daily Plate didn't have the exact ingredients that I used, but it's close enough and gives you an idea of the protein and calories-ish. I calculated it on my own and I got the squares to equal about 65 calories/square, as opposed to the 76 calories estimated in this nutritional sheet. But 10 calories off isn't THAT BIG of a deal. So just take that into consideration.
