Our teen son no longer needed his huge container of chocolate protein powder. At my husband's request, I made this power bar recipe. I t is a good, quick breakfast or cookie alternative.

  • Stir oats, flour, protein powder, and cinnamon together in a large bowl.

  • Mix egg whites, applesauce, olive oil, and peanut butter together in another bowl. Add to the oat mixture and mix well. Fold in chocolate chips and sunflower seeds; batter will be quite thick. Spread into the prepared pan.

  • Bake in the preheated oven until golden, about 30 minutes. Remove from the oven and let cool, 20 to 30 minutes. Cut into bars.

Cook's Notes:

One scoop of protein powder seems about right. I have tried to add more, but ended up with a rubbery bar.

You can substitute 2 whole eggs for the 4 egg whites.
