Ingredients

  • 1 1/2 cup oatmeal (divided)
  • 3/4 cup crisp brown rice cereal
  • 1/2 cup raisins
  • 1/4 cup + 2 tablespoons unsweetened whey protein powder
  • 3/4 teaspoon cinnamon
  • 1/4 teaspoon sea salt
  • 1/4 cup coconut oil
  • 1/4 cup date syrup (or sub honey)

Instructions

  • Preheat oven to 350 degrees Fahrenheit.
  • Take 3/4 cup oatmeal, and process using a blender or a food processor until oats form a flour.
  • Add oat flour, oatmeal, brown rice crisp, raisins, whey protein, cinnamon and sea salt to a bowl, and mix together.
  • In a microwave safe bowl, add coconut oil and date syrup (or honey). Microwave for 20-30 seconds (or longer, if coconut oil was solid), until mixture is warmed but not too hot.
  • Pour liquid, warm coconut oil and honey mixture into the dry mixture, and mix together well.
  • Line an 8x8 pan with baking paper or grease with coconut oil.
  • Pour protein bar mixture into the pan, and use a pastry roller to press down into an even layer. A pastry roller really helps make a nice looking, compact layer. If I didn't have one, I would use a pint glass or something similar.
  • Bake for 12-14 minutes, until the bars are lightly golden brown.
  • Cool completely (in the refrigerator), and then slice into bars. I store these and enjoy them right out of the freezer (they get really crunchy when frozen), but cut them before freezing. Frozen bars are difficult to cut and will split.
