Homemade Protein Bars Recipes 1

Makes 6 homemade protein bars

* 1 cup raw oatmeal
* 5 scoops of strawberry protein powder ( 90g of protein)
* 1/4 cup fat free cream cheese
* 1/2 cup non fat dry milk powder
* 2 egg whites
* 1/4 cup water
* 1 1/2 bananas, mashed
* 2 tsp. canola oil (this is the secret to moist bars instead of the traditional dry bar)

Preheat oven to 325 degrees. Spray a 9x9 square pan with cooking spray & set aside. In a medium bowl combine oatmeal, protein powder & dry milk. Set aside. In another bowl beat together with an electric hand mixer, cream cheese, egg whites, bananas, water & oil. Add the oat mixture & continue to beat until the two are combined. Pour batter into the prepared pan & bake for 30-35 minutes or until toothpick comes out clean.
