Protein Pumpkin Granola Bars

It's certainly sometimes easier to purchase foods like granola bars from the grocery store. I get it. But have you ever made your own? It's like comparing canned fruit to fresh fruit. Fresh fruit always wins, in my opinion. These granola bars taste so much better than store bought bars. I encourage you to try them out and see what I'm talking about. Plus, pumpkin and chocolate chips are a match made it heaven! 











Ingredients

¾ cup canned pumpkin
¼ cup all-natural almond butter
¼ cup honey
2 scoops Lean Body For Her vanilla whey protein powder
½ teaspoon ginger
½ teaspoon nutmeg
1 teaspoon cinnamon
2½ cups gluten-free rolled oats
2 tablespoons sugar free chocolate chips

Method

1. Preheat oven to 350 degrees F. Line an 8x8” baking dish with parchment paper and set aside.

2. In a mixing bowl, whisk together the first 7 ingredients until smooth.

3. Add oats to the mixing bowl and gently stir until well combined.

4. Spoon mixture into baking dish and smooth down with the back of a spoon.

5. Bake in the oven for 25-28 minutes. Let cool for 30 minutes.

6. Melt the chocolate chips in the microwave, at 20-second intervals, & stir until smooth. Drizzle chocolate on top of cooled bars. Once chocolate hardens, slice into 12 bars and serve.
