High-Fiber, High-Protein Breakfast Bars

High-Fiber, High-Protein Breakfast Bars

SavedByGrace

"I came up with this recipe when my doctor told me I needed to eat more fiber, and I was sick of eating store-bought protein bars for breakfast in the car between the gym and work. Ingredients such as wheat germ, flaxseed, protein powder, peanut butter, and oats make this a healthy way to start the day!"

  • Prep

  • Cook

  • Ready In

  1. Preheat oven to 375 degrees F (190 degrees C). Line an 8x8-inch baking dish with aluminum foil, letting foil hang down over the sides of the pan; spray pan with cooking spray.
  2. Stir oats, wheat germ, flax seed, protein powder, cinnamon, and salt together in a bowl. Mash bananas in a separate large bowl and stir 1/4 cup Jif(R) peanut butter, honey, and vanilla extract into bananas, mixing well. Stir dry ingredients into banana mixture and spread into the prepared baking dish.
  3. Bake in the preheated oven for 20 minutes. Spread 1/4 cup natural peanut butter over top.
  4. Continue baking until lightly browned on the edges and set, 10 more minutes. Let cool in the pan and lift bars onto a work surface using aluminum foil as handles. Cut into bars, wrap in plastic wrap, and store in refrigerator.

Footnotes

  • Cook's Note:
  • You can use any type of protein powder. I use hemp because it is high-fiber. If you use a very sweet powder, I'd suggest lowering the amount of honey. I typically use a brand-name peanut butter inside the bars (Jif(R)), and then all-natural to spread on top. After they are cooled, I cut them into individual servings and cover in plastic wrap for a grab-and-go breakfast.
  • Tip
  • Aluminum foil helps keep food moist, ensures it cooks evenly, keeps leftovers fresh, and makes clean-up easy.

A few notes from the creator of this recipe: 1) Bake temp should be 350 degrees F. 2) I now use 1/2 cup flaxseed for gluten free. 3) Sometimes I use 2 bananas and 1/4 cup applesauce for a lit...

Not offensive, but no great flavor either. All my kids rejected them. Will keep looking for a healthy and delicious bar.

I love that this recipe is pure protein, fiber, and energy, with no added sugar. The banana & honey give it a slight sweetness, and my only cheat was to use Skippy dark chocolate peanut butter....

Thanks so much for this recipe--we love it! From the ingredients I was pretty confident it would be a hit, so I doubled it the first time out and baked in a 13x9 glass dish lined with foil as re...

I made this recipe and both my kids and I loved them! I made it with a chocolate flavoured protein powder, but it wasn't very chocolaty. We take these with us to swimming lessons and have them...

Nice, healthy protein bars. These really only make 9 in an 8x8pan. Love my bars moist, so I use extra huge banana's. I use a 50/50 combo of Regular oats and Steel cut. I have used a pre-done Fl...

I really haven't tried this yet - only because I have a batch of my own in the freezer right now - but I will - because by reading the recipe I can tell they will be good. The only thing I will ...

Yum! Just made these and the family is sampling. They really are tastey and so easy and I always have these ingredients on hand! One exception.....didn't have quick cook oats so used extra thic...

I'd been looking for a recipe that included most/all of the healthy ingredients listed in this recipe. I couldn't find anything other than granola which usually has oil, syrup, and brown sugar i...

YUMMY dense and very filling. I loved these bars and felt full from 8:00 - 1:00 in the afternoon. I added more flaxseeds and I use whole flax instead of the ground because I like the nutty fla...
