New Recipe! Oatmeal Raisin Protein Bars

If you know me, you know I LOVE OATMEAL RAISIN COOKIES!  I was going to make my typical breakfast cookies, but decided to switch up the ingredients and make a more cake-like bar cookie with fewer carbs, since I’m currently very low carb at the moment.  This recipe is simple, so I thought I’d share it with you all to enjoy!

Oatmeal Raisin Protein Bars
(makes 9 large bars)

Ingredients:

  • 1/2 cup light butter (I use Land o’ Lakes Light Butter)
  • 5 tbsp Truvia brown sugar blend
  • 1/4 cup Splenda for baking
  • 1 egg white (46g liquid egg whites)
  • 50g fat-free greek yogurt
  • 2 tsp vanilla extract
  • 2 scoops (80g) vanilla protein powder (I used 1st Phorm Vanilla Ice Cream)
  • 1 1/2 cups old-fashioned oats
  • 28g coconut flour
  • 2 tsp cornstarch
  • 1 tsp baking soda
  • 1/4 tsp salt
  • 2 tsp cinnamon
  • 80g raisins

Directions:

  1. Preheat over to 350 degrees.  Grease a 9×9″ baking dish.
  2. In a large bowl, cream butter with Truvia and Splenda.
  3. Add egg whites, yogurt and vanilla.
  4. In a medium bowl, sift together the protein powder, coconut flour, baking soda, salt, and cinnamon.
  5. Slowly add the dry mixture to the wet ingredients and combine.  Be sure not to over-mix.  Note: The dough will be thick.
  6. Add raisins and stir to evenly distribute throughout the dough.
  7. Pour into the prepared baking dish and press to fill the edges.
  8. Bake for 15-20 minutes or until a toothpick comes out clean.  If you want a more cookie-like bar, bake for 12-15 minutes.
  9. Cool, slice, and enjoy!
