Protein Pumpkin Bars

I have been wanting to try recipes for so long, but just never do it so I decided I was going to take the leap and START this week! It actually is really hard in NYC because getting groceries home is a huge to-do with carrying it all back!

Let's get right to it! 

INGREDIENTS

  • 1 cup oats
  • 2 scoops vanilla whey of choice
  • 1/2 cup unsweetened almond milk 
  • 1 whole egg
  • 1/2 cup canned pumpkin 
  • 1 teaspoon baking powder 
  • 1 teaspoon pumpkin pie spice 
  • 1/2 teaspoon cinnamon 
  • Optional: chocolate chips (those were added for the picture actually haha)

DIRECTIONS

  • Mix all ingredients in blender (should be cookie consistency) 
  • Let dough sit in fridge for 30 min to 1 hour 
  • Preheat oven to 300
  • Spray loaf pan (9x5) and fill it up! 
  • Bake for 15-20 minutes 

NOTE: Serves 8 

All recipes that I make, I have no idea how they are going to turn out. This could have been a total bust and I actually thought it might be when the dough was cookie like. Cookies normally take 6-8 minutes at 350 to cook, but since I made a loaf I set the baking to a little lower temperature but for longer and just stuck a fork in it to make sure it was done. I don't do timers on things (but maybe I'll start for recipes for you guys lol). I'm hoping one day to not have to use measuring spoons/cups either. I always think that's a sign of an awesome cook! 

Hope you enjoy! Let me know if you try it! Tag me and all that fun stuff! 

With love and pumpkin, 

Katie
