{Recipe} Chocolate Protein Bars

In bad blogger fashion, I totally forgot to take pictures of these, but just know that they. are. delicious.

I was definitely skeptical after reading the ingredients, but these turned out to be seriously so good. They are a wonderful little treat and will cure the inevitable chocolate craving. Sometimes you just need a lil' somethin' sweet, ya know?

Ok, so here it is.

Per Serving: Serving Size 2 bars
Calories:  96
Fat:  1.4 grams
Carbs:  12 grams
Protein: 10 grams


1 cup Oat Flour (I just put old fashioned oats in the food processor)
4 Egg Whites
2 scoops Vanilla Whey Protein Powder (I use this one, but any will do)
½ cup Splenda, Truvia, or Ideal (I have used Ideal and Splenda. I like Ideal better because it feels more like sugar. Splenda bakes up differently - I don't care what the package says, but it's a little pricey so, I'm opting for Splenda right now)
½ tsp Baking Soda
¼ tsp Salt
8oz Berry flavored Baby Food 
3 tbsp Baking Cocoa (I like Hershey's Special Dark)
1/2 c. Water


Preheat oven to 350 degrees.
Mix dry ingredients (oat flour, vanilla whey protein, baking soda, salt, baking cocoa) together in a large bowl.
Mix wet ingredients (egg whites, Splenda, Truvia, or Ideal, Berry flavored Baby Food,Water) together in a medium sized bowl.
Add wet ingredients to dry ingredients and mix together.
Spray cooking dish with a non stick butter spray and add batter to dish.
Bake 20-30 minutes in oven.
Makes 16 squares, serving size=2 bars.
