Does anyone have a recipe for high protein, low carb/sugar protein bar?
July 16, 2012 10:20 AM

3 scoops vanilla protein powder
3 tsp baking powder
8 tsp Splenda
4 eggs
1/4 cup of Flax Seed oil (or olive oil)
1/4 cup water
1 cup cranberries
2 tsp vanilla extract
2 tsp lemon extract
2 tsp banana extract

Mix together dry ingredients.
In separate bowl mix together eggs, oil, and extracts & beat well.
Add to dry ingredients to second mixture, combining well.
Add water and cranberries. Should be a wet consistency like a cake mix.
Pour into Pam-sprayed square cake pan.
Cook at 325 for 10-15 minutes until a toothpick comes out clean. Sometimes may take longer to cook, depending on type of protein powder used.
Cut into four squares. Each square has about 20 grams of protein, 4.13 grams of carbs.

This is a base protein bar recipe in which you can add you own flavors.

1.5 cups oat flour (I grind my own oat flour in my food processor or blender from old fashioned oats, but if you are in a rush you can just use old fashioned oats instead of oat flour, the bars will just be a little chewier)
3 scoops vanilla whey protein

1 Tbsp baking powder
1/2 tsp salt
1/3 cup Splenda

3 egg whites
1 cup unsweetened vanilla almond milk

1/3 cup unsweetened applesauce or 1 3.5oz container of fruit flavored baby food (whatever flavor extract you use will determine what you want to use here, such as banana extract and banana baby food)

¼ cup fat freeGreek yogurt
2-3 tsp of extract of your choice (you could do 1/2 and 1/2, i.e. 1 tsp almond extract, 1.5 tsp orange extract)
Any other flavors/nuts of your choice (nuts, peanut butter, unsweetened cocoa powder, instant coffee, etc)

Preheat oven to 350. Spray an 8 X 8 inch Pyrex dish with non-stick spray.


In a large bowl combine: (whisk together)

oat flour + vanilla whey protein

baking powder

tsp salt

Stevia in the Raw or brown sugar xylitol/regular xylitol (I like Ideal brand)

In a medium bowl combine: (whisk together & add to lrg bowl)

egg whites

unsweetened almond milk (Almond Breeze)

fruit flavored baby food or unsweetened applesauce if you don't have baby food handy

Plain Greek yogurt

-Any other flavors or nuts you are adding to recipe.

Mix dry and wet ingredients well. Pour into prepared pan. Bake for 25 to 30 min or until knife comes out clean when placed in center. (Mine was closer to the 30 minutes but this will vary depending on your oven). Let cool for 10 min. Bars will be dense.

Thanks ladies!!

BUMP for the lemon-cran-nanner one.

Here's my go-to 5-min no-bake:

2 cups oats
5 scoops choco or choco chip protein powder
8 tbsp natural PB
1 tbsp milled flaxseed
1/4 cup water

Mix all ingredients together, folding my hand (very sticky). Line 9 x 9 pan with wax paper. Mash "batter" into lined pan; make sure to mash it into the corners and try to make it flat. Freeze for ~2 hours. Cut and keep in fridge.

I get 12 bars out of this at:
174 cal
13 carbs
7 healthy fats
15 protein
2 sugar (awesomely low!)
78 sodium

bump for the 5 min no bake one. smile

the best protein bars you will ever make, i guarantee it. Not my recipe, but i have made these once before and they are AWESOME!!! can be a little expensive to get all the ingredients but well worth it in my opinion

I got a low carb and a high carb one

-1c milk or 1c unflavored almond milk (higher v lower carb)
-1.5 scoops casein - COOKIES AND CREAM
-80g Blueberries - They taste the best IMO; have tried strawberries and mixed berries.

Tastes like blue berry cake batter ice cream

It is like 26g CHO/5g fat/46 protein vs 14g CHO/5g fat/38g Pro.

This one is from the same guy, but a little different in ingredients and also size

-3c milk or 3c almond milk
-6 servings Kashi GoLean or you can use several cups of oatmeal but I like how I get the soy protein with go lean and also the crunch factor it adds.
-12 servings CHOCO PB MYO - Please don't be a dumb **** and use something else!
-4 servings casein - I like C n C or Choco PB ON, but don't think it matters much so long as you got the choco pb myofusion
-2 servings Natty PB or Almond PB

I recommend mixing the protein powders and the milk/almond milk before the other ingredients or else you will find it nearly impossible to get all the powder mixed. I also sometimes add a bit of water if I am having trouble mixing. I keep track of how much every ingredient weights then divide the total by 10 which equals how much each bar should weigh if I want 10 bars.

Macros should be roughly 20g CHO/8g Fat/48g PRO per bar with the entire recipe yielding 10 - usually my first bar is me licking 170 grams of ingredients out of the mixing bowl lol.

these bars are suppose to be frozen!!!

i'll say it again, i am not the creator of these recipes but i have made them before and they tasted like snickerdoodles!!!
