Lemon Cake PrOATein Bars

These came out SUPER moist and cake-like. Fresh lemon zest and lemon juice make these bars burst with clean, delicious, lemon flavor. Perfect to take on-the-go or to add to your protein fro-yo :)



Lemon Cake PrOATein Bars

Ingredients:

1 scoop vanilla whey protein powder
1 tablespoon coconut flour
1/4 cup oatmeal
3 tablespoons powdered stevia (or to taste)
1 tablespoon sugar-free lemon pudding mix
Zest of one medium lemon
1 tablespoon fresh lemon juice
1/2 cup egg whites
1/4 cup Greek yogurt
1/4 cup cottage cheese

Directions:

1. Preheat oven to 350.
2. Blend all ingredients together in a blender.
3. Pour batter into a loaf pan coated with cooking spray.
4. Bake for about 20 minutes, or until knife comes out clean.
5. Let cool, then cut into four pieces.

If you'd like to add "frosting", just mix together 1 tablespoon greek yogurt with 1 tablespoon vanilla whey. If you want to get real fancy, throw some more zest on top.
