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!
