Ingredients

  • 2 scoops Chocolate Whey Protein Powder
  • 3 tbsp Peanut Butter, Smooth
  • 2 cups Oats
  • 5 Egg Whites
  • 3 Bananas, Medium
  • 1 ounce Honey
  • 4 ounces Skim Milk
  • 1.5 tsp Cinnamon

Cooking Instructions

Preheat your oven to 350 degrees F.

Place the oats in a blender or food processor and pulse until they reach a flour-like texture. Now place the oats in a mixing bowl and add in the cinnamon and chocolate whey protein powder. Next add in the peanut butter and mix thoroughly.

Mash your bananas and add them to this mixture, along with the honey and egg whites. Mix well. Finally, add the skim milk and mix again.

Pour batter into a 9x9 or 9x13 greased baking pan. You may also use a pan lined with parchment paper.

Bake for 15 to 20 minutes, or until a toothpick comes out clean from the center of the pan. Allow the bars to cool and then cut into 6 bars. You may also cut them into 8 servings if you prefer a lower calories, lower protein bar.

If using a 9x9 pan the bars with be a little thicker. Cooking time may vary.

Serving Suggestions

Makes 6 protein bars.

This looks great, just one question, when you say "2 scoops"....how much is a scoop? I have several different sized scoops...as far as I know a scoop is not a standardised unit of measurement.

Well they are out. Really soft n moist! I think next time one less banana, a handful of some chopped nuts, ans a ill more peanut butter. The banana taste is strong...but when dealing with any type of plant base your going to have to play it by chance. I wanted a more choclate peanut butter taste but it was still much better than anything in the store. Think protein powder makes a difference to. I used syntha 6 chocolate peanut butter and did two scoops of that so will try different powder later.

Cashew butter, almond butter, should be ok since these are tree nuts not legumes. I'd be wary about soy since most people with nut allergies don't seem to tolerate it at all.

Not sure exactly what the picture is of cause mine don't look like that. I don't think the fact that I used almond milk instead of skim had anything to do with it. They are not terrible and way cheaper than buying them. I guess next time I will play around with the measurements.

these are good, but a metric conversion would be a lifesaver, i understand most of your readers must be american but if you are using metric for nutritional info i'm sure it would'nt take long to do the same for the recipe. took me a few attempts to get the quantities right.

I concur, the US is only one country, metric for the rest of the world would be nice. Thanks.

I made this and wasn't too happy with the results. I think it might be the bananas. If I don't add the bananas, would it taste more like a brownie?

Just finished the first batch. 18mins + 5 mins + 5 mins more... now cooling down. Strong taste of banana, the chocolate and peanut butter are minimal. Also when it said a protein bar I expected a more harder and crispier kind of result. But it is actually very soft and moisty. I am an amateur at baking and there is something wrong here.

Million ways you can change or add to this recipe but all and all this is very good for a baked bar/brownie. The protein you choose will make all the difference in taste depending on what your target is. First yes they are very runny and bake times will change depending on size of pan you choose just keep checking to make sure you don’t over cook. If you like the more peanut butter taste try the Jiff whips and us a small amount to lightly top it off as a frosting. Also fyi store in the fridge to keep fresh and last longer.

Mehhh these are super bland and more like a dense cakey texture. I added coconut and chico chips in it, as well as a little nutmeg and stevia but it didn't help much. Instead of regular pb I used PB2 powdered pb. I also added a little bit less banana after reading the comments. I melted some chocolate to spread on top and that really helps, however, it makes it significantly more sugary/carby. If I try again I'll add more pb, maybe the real stuff, some cocoa powder, and who knows what else. Maybe some nuts?
