Apple Cinnamon Oat bars
- 3 cups Rolled Oats (about 275 grams)
- ¼ cup Whole Grain Oat Flour (about 30 grams)
- ¾ cup Unflavored Protein Powder (about 90 grams)
- ¼ cup Light Brown Sugar (about 50 grams)
- 2 tsp Baking Powder (about 10 grams)
- 1 tbsp Ground Cinnamon (about 15 grams)
- ⅛ tsp Sea Salt
- 2 Apples diced, granny smith or your favorite apple(about 225 grams)
- 3 tbsp Unsalted Butter melted
- ¾ cup 2% Milk (about 4 oz)
- 2 Large Whole Eggs
- 1 tbsp Pure Vanilla Extract
- 1 tbsp Honey (about 20 grams)
- Pre-heat oven to 375° and prepare a 9×12" inch pan with parchment paper, leaving a little overhang on the sides to make it easy to remove the bars from the pan.
- In a large bowl mix together all of the dry ingredients: Oats, Flour, Protein Powder, Brown Sugar, Baking Powder, Cinnamon, Salt, and Apples. Stir until everything is evenly combined, and the apples are coated.
- In a smaller bowl whisk together all wet ingredients: Melted Butter, Milk, Eggs, Vanilla, and Honey.
- Once the wet ingredients are well incorporated, pour the wet ingredients into the dry ingredients, stirring together to combine.
- Pour the mixture into your prepared pan and bake for 20-25 minutes at 375°, until cooked through and the top is golden brown.
- Remove from the oven, let cool, then remove from the pan to cut into bars. Grabbing the parchment paper overhang you can put the one complete bar out of the pan and place it on the cutting board. This makes it easier to now cut into euqal 12 bars.
