Banana Oatmeal Protein Bars

These breakfast protein bars are VERY filling and loaded with bananas. You can eat them as is, drizzle some honey on top, or add melted peanut butter and jelly with some sliced bananas! It is great for a snack (or breakfast or dessert) and pretty guilt free. And an 8x8 pan makes only 6 servings, so they are pretty large slices!


1 c. oats
1/2 c. protein powder, vanilla (or 1 heaping scoop)
1 tsp. baking powder
2 medium very ripe bananas, mashed
4 egg whites
1 c. milk (I used Bolthouse Farms Vanilla Chai Tea protein beverage

Preheat the oven to 350 degrees. Line an 8x8 pan with tinfoil and spray with non stick cooking spray. In a large bowl, mix the above ingredients together until everything is well combined.

Pour into the prepared pan and bake for 25-30 minutes until the bars are set and bounce back slightly when pushed. Let cool fully before cutting into bars.

(Makes 6 servings, 3 points plus Weight Watchers points per serving. If you add a drizzle of peanut butter, jelly and a sprinkle of Chia seeds, it goes up to 4 PP.)
