Pumpkin Chip Protein Bars
Break out the can of Libby’s pumpkin for this one!! It’s tasty, has chocolate, & a nice dose of protein & fiber… plus, fall flavor. No added sugar – slightly honey sweetened. What’s not to love about that?

Pre-heat oven to 350 degrees F. Coat an 8x8" baking pan with non-stick spray & set aside.
Ground oats in a food processor or blender until they're a fine powder & set aside. In a medium bowl, combine egg, protein powder, pumpkin, & honey. Mix well. Add in the oat flour, almond flour, chia seeds, & spices. Mix well.
Lastly, mix in the chocolate chips & baking powder.
Pour mixture into the baking pan & pat down evenly. Bake approximately 25 minutes, until a toothpick inserted in the center comes out clean.
Let cool, then cut into slices & store in the refrigerator. Enjoy!
