Gluten Free Protein-Oatmeal Snack Bars

Hello friends! I was searching for a recipe today to make as a snack for the week! I’m juggling two jobs- one as a front desk receptionist at Body Structure Medical Fitness Facility, and one as a nanny to 3.5yr old triplet boys! Last week, I made a gluten free version of the Double “P” Puppy Treats for myself (they’re human friendly and quite tasty when rolled in sugar+ginger powder prior to baking!)

I thought about making another cracker sort of treat for this week, but alas, I was out of gluten free flour! I was checking out a few blogs last night and found a recipe for GF Oat Squares, but my Google search today didn’t lead me to that same recipe so I made this one up!

Ingredients

  • 2 cups steel-cut gluten-free oats (I used Bob’s Red Mill)
  • 1/2 cup milk (used skim)
  • 2 eggs
  • 3 scoops of vanilla whey protein powder (I used the “Smart Sense” brand found at Kmart, we had a gift card)
  • 1/3 cup honey (local and raw!)
  • 1.5TBSP ground cinnamon
  • 2 tsp vanilla extract
  • 1/2 tsp salt

Directions

  1. Preheat oven to 350.
  2. Whisk wet ingredients together
  3. Add in the protein powder & whisk.
  4. Add in the oats, mix. (The batter will be pretty runny)
  5. Pour into an 11x7in oiled pan (or use foil and oil the foil!)
  6. Bake at 350 for about 20 minutes or until edges are browning and center isn’t jiggly.

These have a wonderful vanilla flavor! I can imagine stirring in coconut, nuts, raisins or chocolate chips and peanut butter into the batter for a sweet treat!

My recipe yielded 14 bars, I stored half away in the freezer and I’ve got half sitting in the fridge- ready to grab as I dash out the door!
