Units: US | Metric
- nonstick cooking spray
- 1 cup powdered soy protein concentrate
- 1/2 cup unbleached all-purpose flour
- 2 cups rolled oats
- 1/2 cup oat bran
- 1/2 teaspoon cinnamon
- 3/4 teaspoon salt
- 1/2-2/3 cup packed brown sugar
- 1 cup semi-sweet chocolate chips
- 1 1/2 cups plain yogurt or 1 1/2 cups vanilla yogurt
- 1/4 cup canola oil
- 2 teaspoons vanilla extract
- 1Preheat the oven to 350°F (325°F for a glass pan).
- 2Lightly spray a 9- by 13- inch baking pan and a baking tray with nonstick spray.
- 3Mix together the protein powder, flour, oats, oat bran, cinnamon, and salt in a large bowl.
- 4Crumble in the brown sugar, rubbing it with your fingers to break up any clumps.
- 5Stir in the chocolate chips.
- 6Measure the yogurt, oil, and vanilla into a second bowl, stirring until well combined.
- 7Add the wet mixture to the dry, and mix patiently until thoroughly blended.
- 8(May use your hands-- it will be a thick batter, almost like a dough.) Transfer the mixture to the prepared pan, patting it evenly into place with your hands.
- 9Bake in the center of the oven for 15 minutes, then remove from the oven and cut into bars of any size or shape.
- 10Place the bars on the prepared baking tray and bake for another 15 minutes, or until golden around the edges.
- 11(For extra-crunchy bars, turn off the oven and leave them in there for up to 45 minutes longer.) Remove the bars from the oven, and place them on a rack to cool.
- 12Eat the bars within a few hours, or seal them in a heavy zip-style plastic bag and store in the freezer.
- 13For maximum crispness,"refresh" them in a toaster oven after defrosting.
- 14You can make the main recipe with any combination of the following adjustments: Replace the canola oil with 1/2 cup peanut butter or almond butter (softened in a microwave).
- 15Replace the flour with quinoa, ground to a powder in a blender or an electric spice grinder.
- 16Replace the yogurt with mashed silken tofu (soft or firm).
- 17Add 2 to 3 tablespoons powdered egg whites.
- 18Add up to 1 cup chopped nuts and/or sunflower seeds.
- 19For nondairy bars, replace the yogurt with unsweetened applesauce, canned pumpkin, or mashed banana.
- 20Add an extra pinch of salt if using pumpkin or silken tofu.
