  1. used almond milk instead of regular milk; vanilla flavored whey; use an 8X8 glass pyrex . They were great. I did mash banana prior to putting in with liquids. easy to pour and 35 mins was good cooking time. will make again. Tonight but instead of banana I used chopped pink lady apple and cut make the cinamon to 1 TBS. will let you know..... Keeper even husband liked
  2. I substituted sunflower seeds with a higher quantity of chia seeds to obtain similar nutritional benefits with more fiber, but with significantly fewer calories. Apple cinnamon flavored oatmeal has been the tastiest for me, especially adding banana, raisins and tiny walnut pieces, along with vanilla flavored whey protein. Easy to make, reasonable amount of calories and carbs for the nutritional benefits, protein and fiber.
  3. Taste Great! I added Apple sauce and used almond milk. It holds me over for a couple hours after a light workout. I have to be careful, I can snack on these all day long. Definitely a great protein bar ! I cut it into a tad smaller portions.
  4. 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
  5. 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.


  1. 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!
  2. OK. I learned 1 important lesson from this recipe - if you use a flavored protein powder, make sure you like the flavor. I used WF Vegan Plant-based protein in the Vanilla-Cinnamon flavor, which tastes horrible (to me). I thought it would go nicely with the cinnamon, raisin oatmeal, or would at least be hidden. Huge thumbs down. The plant-based protein powder flavor completely over-powered everything else. My fault for using it in the bars just to get rid of it. Batch 2 was very different. I used Jay Robb Vanilla Whey - much better flavor. Also using whole eggs (#2) vs. egg whites (#1) made the batter a little wetter & pourable. I also used 1 cup almond milk and 1/2 cup of unsweetened applesauce, which created more moistness. The end result was a much better flavor, moister protein bar. I love nuts, dried fruit and seeds, so my batches included walnuts, sunflower seeds, raisins and dried cherries.
