LEMON CHIA SEED PROTEIN BARS
Easy to make protein bars with plenty of delicious lemony taste minus the high fat and sugar. Great for a healthy breakfast or snack.
about 1 cup rolled oats
scoops vanilla protein powder
for gluten-free use a brown rice or hemp protein powder
Greek nonfat vanilla yogurt
(juice from about 2 lemons)
(zest from 2 lemons)
Preheat oven to 350 degrees. Grease a 9x9-inch baking dish with coconut oil.
Using a food processor or blender (I use my Ninja blender and it works great), pour in 1 cup rolled oats and blend until it looks like a flour. It will produce about ¾ cup oat flour.
In a large bowl, blend all dry ingredients: flour, protein powder, salt, baking powder, chia seeds and stevia.
In a medium bowl, combine remaining wet ingredients.
Blend wet ingredients into dry and mix well.
Pour into prepared baking dish and bake for 40 minutes. Cool then turn out on board and cut into bars.
When cool, I wrap each bar in plastic wrap and place in freezer. Whenever I want to bring one to work for an afternoon snack I just grab and go. This way they will keep for a few months.
