Cinnamon Protein Bars

Yesterday I enjoyed clean eating meal prep with a client. This is where she selects two recipes and a side and we cook together. I also give a 2 week meal plan along with the recipes. Jessica selected Chicken Fried Rice, Kristi's Healthy Hot dish and my favorite Cinnamon Protein Bars! 

Cinnamon Protein Bars
2 1/4 cups oats (roast in the oven for 10-15 minutes)
1 c. all natural peanut butter (or sun butter)
1/4 c. honey
1/2 unsweetened apple sauce
2 tbsp. dark choc chips
1 c. whey protein (NO SOY) (unflavored or vanilla)
1 tbsp. cinnamon
2 tbsp. chia seeds or flax seeds.

Roast Oats, once cooled mix all ingredients, spray 8X8 pan with canola oil, spread mixture into pan. Bake at 350 for approx 20-25 min. 
Let bars cool and wrap individually in plastic wrap then store in fridge.  By do this you can add a apple and you are ready for a quick clean meal on the go!! (pictured above it a double batch and below is all bars ready for the fridge)
I hop you enjoy!


  1. I just made these and they baked up quick and easy - definitely will be making them again! substituted almond butter
    Thanks for the great recipe!

  2. If you made this recipe and put it in the 8x8 pan and cut into 8 servings, the nutrition info is this: 427.5 calories, 21.2g fat, 42.7g carbohydrate, 16.4g protein. If you cut into 12 servings it would be 285 calories, 14.1g fat, 28.5 carbs, 10.9g protein. I found this out by entering all the ingredients into's recipe calculator.

  3. looks yummy but is that the calories per bar or the pan thats a ton of calories if for a bar ;(
