Janet's Protein Bars

Janet's Protein Bars
I've made my own in the past. My recipe is not very exacting, so modify as you like. Try this:

4-6 bananas that have been allowed to ripen to black
1 cup protein powder (I use one that is 50g protein/half cup)
4 egg whites
1 cup dried fruit (I like pineapple)
1 cup raisins
1 cup nuts

Mash bananas. Mix in egg whites, protein powder, then fruit, raisins and nuts. Add oatmeal, one cup at a time, mixing until you get a rather wet "cookie dough." Press mixture into glass baking dishes. Bake at 350°F for 30-45 minutes, until lightly browned. Cool thoroughly, then cut into 1-1/2" x 4" bars. Yield for me is usually 24 bars, IIRC.

Every time I've put this recipe through a calorie calculator the bars work out to about 250 calories with about 10-12 g protein in each. You might try adding flax and/or hemp seed to the mix, for additional Omega fatty acids.
