Cranberry Lemon Protein Bars

14 Dec



2 cups uncooked oatmeal

3 scoops lemon flavored protein powder (I use Xtreme UltraPeptide ‘Lemon Cream Pie’ protein powder)**

1/3 cup splenda granulated (NOT splenda for baking)

1/4 cup walnut butter (any nut butter would probably work)

1 cup egg beaters

1/4 cup water

zest of one lemon

3/4 cup Low Calorie Apple Cranberry Sauce (You can use any cranberry sauce. Just know that it will change the stats a bit)

Directions: Mix first 7 ingredients well. Spread in 8X8 pan sprayed with Pam. Top with cranberry sauce. Bake in 350 degree oven for 15-20 minutes. If you over bake, they will be too dry.  Let cool, and cut into 8 bars.

You can also refrigerate this and eat it raw. I like it a lot this way!

**If you don’t have lemon protein powder, try substituting lemon zest and some lemon extract.

This makes a very nice breakfast treat, and kept me full all morning.

Makes 8 servings. Per serving: Fats: 6.8g  Carbs: 16.5g  Fiber:2.6g   Protein 15.6g
