Homemade protein bar

I have a little recipe for you today!

If you’re trying to reach a certain amount of protein per day without too much calories and carbs, you should like this one.

The main ingredient being tofu, you get a lot of protein and very little carbs.

You will need:

  • 1 package of tofu (454g)
  • 1/2 cup of egg whites
  • 2/3 cup of protein powder ( I use GNC whey iso burst chocolate)
  • about 2 tbsp of sweetener ( I use brown sugar Splenda)
  • 1/2 cup of oats
  • 1/3 cup of whole wheat flour
  • 2 tsp ground flax seed
  • 1 tsp vanilla and 1 tsp cinnamon

Mix everything together with a mixer until a thick batter forms. Spray in 8 x 8 pan with cooking oil and spread the mixture. Cook at 350 F for about 20-25 min, or until the top is firm but the inside is still soft.

I get about 6 portions of  215 calories (11g carbs, 25g protein, 8g fat and 1g sugar)

The first time I tried the recipe I was a bit skeptical, but I played around with the ingredients and the measurements and I give the final and best recipe I think!

Hope you like it!
