Blueberry Chocolate Protein Oatmeal Bars
Although I love Quaker Oats and still buy some of their products from time to time, I can't help think, "Why can't they add some protein bars to their product line?" So I set out to re-make these beloved bars with protein powder. These bars taste exactly like Quaker Chewy bars, but with ADDED protein to keep you fuller longer! Enjoy!
- 2 cups of jumbo oats
- 1 cup wheat bran
- 1 scoop chocolate protein powder
- 1 packet Milk Chocolate Ovaltine (see notes for substitutions)
- 1/4 cup sugar free maple syrup
- 1/4 cup water
- 1/3 cup blueberries
Level of difficulty Easy
Cost Budget Friendly
Preheat oven to 350 degrees. Puree blueberries with water and syrup. Then combine all ingredients. Bake in a large square pan (about 11x11) for 20 mins, or until just golden brown.
Notes: you can use 1 packet of regular or diet hot chocolate, or 3 tbsp Nesquick, or 3 tbsp cocao powder + 2 tbsp sweetener, or experiment with any sort of chocolate powder!
