Cashew Coconut Oatmeal Bars

Looking for a quick protein packed bar that doesn't taste like a candy bar? I've been meaning to make some kind of oatmeal bar and came up with this recipe. I just used what I had in the fridge and pantry. I used leftover Coconut milk from smoothies, dates in the fridge and an open bag of cashews and an overly ripe banana JB nor I dare to eat...

You can make these with whatever you have in your pantry- just be creative!

Cashew Coconut Oatmeal Bars

Preheat your oven to 350.

1. Mix together:

  • 1 egg
  • 1 C. light coconut milk (skim, almond or rice milk works too.)
  • 1 Ripe banana - mashed
  • 1/2 t. vanilla

2. Mix in:

  • 1 scoop or protein powder (I used plain- vanilla would work too.)
  • 2 C. Rolled Oats
  • 1/2 t. cinnamon
  • dash salt
  • 2 T. Wheat Germ
  • 1/2 C. chopped cashews (any nut would work)
  • 5 chopped dates (optional)

3. Pour into a 9x9 baking dish lined with parchment paper for easy removal.

4. Bake at 350 for 20-25 minutes.

5. Cut up into squares and enjoy!
