Make and share this Oatmeal Raisin Protein Bars recipe from Food.com.
- 2 1⁄2 cups oatmeal
- 1⁄2 cup walnuts

- 1⁄2 cup raisins
- 2 tablespoons cinnamon
- 2 eggs
- 1 banana
- 120 g whey protein
- 1 1⁄2 cups milk

- Mix dry ingredients in a mixing bowl, then mix in milk and eggs.
- Pour ingredients into an oiled 8x8" baking pan.
- Bake for 30-35 minutes.
Properly the easiest thing I've ever made and they taste amazing. I tend to snack on these and have them after gym. I also added 5 scoops of strawberry whey which made it taste even better
I didn't have the whey protein so made them without it - thus I guess they weren't 'protein bars'. There's no mention of the banana in the instructions. I was in a hurry and tried to mash them in the batter and that didn't really work well. They'd probably do better in pre-mashed or pureed. It is an unusual recipe, but seems to be a good one for healthy carbs.
Wow, I am suprised and impressed with this recipe! I did not expect good results, as the "batter" wasn't in any way pourable, as the instructions state. I ended up spreading my batter into a 9x13 and baking for about 25 minutes. The changes I made were as follows: no walnuts, currants in place of raisins, 3 egg whites instead of full eggs, almond milk in place of milk, and plain soy protein isolate in place of whey. I also added a bit of vanilla extract, and some Stevia herb to sweeten. These bars tasted GREAT, had a chewy/soft texture, and are so healthy. Thanks for posting this!
