Apple and Cinnamon Protein Bars
½ cup rolled oats ground into flour
½ cup vanilla whey protein isolate powder (available in our online store)
½ cup coconut sugar
½ cup sultanas or raisins
2 teaspoons ground cinnamon
1 teaspoon baking powder
2 peeled and grated apples
2 tablespoons coconut oil or butter
Preheat oven to 170°C and grease or line a 20cm x 20cm baking dish with baking paper. Add oat flour, protein powder, sugar, sultanas, cinnamon and baking powder to a large mixing bowl and stir to combine. Add the grated apple then stir it through until it is all separated and covered in the dry ingredients, this will ensure that you have an even distribution of fruit throughout the bars. Make a well in the centre then add the eggs and oil and stir then together to break up the egg then gently fold through making sure not to over mix the dough. Spoon into the prepared baking dish and bake for 35-40 minutes or until a skewer comes out clean and dry. Allow to cool before cutting.
