Clean Eating Protein Bars


  • Protein Powder
  • Brown Rice Flour
  • Oats
  • Sunflower Seeds
  • Flax Seed/Meal
  • Wheat Germ
  • Greek Yogurt


Spray 9x13" pan with canola cooking spray. Preheat oven to 350.

1 1/2c whey or soy protein powder (make sure there is no additional sugar added)
1/2c quinoa flour, spelt, brown rice, amaranth, millet, kamut...your choice, I use brown rice flour or spelt flour
2c rolled oats-not instant
1/2c sunflower seeds, raw
1/2c coarsely chopped flax seed or flax meal
1/2c wheat germ
3/4c coconut, dried unsweetened
1TB sea salt
1tsp cinnamon
1/4 tsp nutmeg
1/2c honey, agave nectar or sucanat
Mix all of this together in a large bowl.

In a separate bowl mix
1/4c unsweetened apple sauce
1/4c canned pumpkin
1/2c peanut butter (or any other natural nut butter, no sugar added)
2c greek yogurt (non-fat)
1/4c canola oil
2TB olive oil
1 tsp vanilla

Add both mixture together.

Add 3/4c dark chocolate (chopped), 1/2c dried cranberriers/raisins any other dried fruit of your choice. Mix well, I use my hands.

Place mixture into prepared pan. Press it down and even out the top. Bake on the middle rack for 15 mins. Remove from the oven, let cool and cut into bars (you pick the size). Place the cut bars on a sheet tray lined with a Silpat and bake again for another 15 mins. Transfer to cooling rack. Place in airtight container. I freeze them and stick in micro for 15 seconds when I would like to have one.
YIELD: 25-30 depending on the size you cut
COOKING TIME: 30 minutes
