Whole wheat, Pumpkin, Oatmeal, Protein Bar-ish things

Maaaaan, not again.  This is the second time I’ve laces snap on me like this and its really annoying.  Now I have to go find some laces before tomorrow workout.  Plus, these laces were pretty fly too–the neon green on black look.

 And while I was outside, I grabbed this shot for yall… 



 I was hanging out a friend of mines house last night, and another friend, Abby, brought over Jo-Ann’s Power Bars, a recipe she got from Allrecipes.com.  

So maybe Melissa and I hinted very strongly that we would like to give these a try…  They were really good though!

They were a little bit soft, so I popped them in the oven for a few minutes when I got home to crisp them up. 

Of course, I ended up saying that I would make some “trail mix-like scones.”  Well I made something…I wouldn’t call them scones, thought.  I call them Whole wheat pumpkin protein oatmeal bar-things.  Here is the recipe: 

  • 1.5 cup flour
  • 1.5 cup oats
  • 1 cup Kashi Go Lean Crunch
  • 1 can Pumpkin
  • 1 6oz. yogurt
  • 2 scoops protein powder
  • 1 little box of raisins

Bake for 20 minutes at 400 degrees 

 Here is the total break down1750 calories, 15g fat, 73g protein, 331g carb.  I sliced these into 9 bars, making each: 195 cal, 1.7g fat, 8g protein, 37g carb 

These are very low fat, too low, missing all the benefits some seeds, nuts, or nut butter would have added. But, I plan to eat them as fast snacks before workouts, or fuel for during long workouts.  Here’s what they looked like from start to finish:

Haven’t tasted them yet, but I’ll comment tomorrow after I try them!
