Healthy Protein bars -choc banana flavor
i like protein bars for convenience but hate all the sugars, fats, colouring and preservatives they put in them to make them nutritionally shite
this is a healthy recipe for a protein bar mixture - it actually comes out more looking like a cake but u can cut them into pieces and take them with you to work nice and easily as they stick together well and dont crumble everywhere
300g banana (raw)
1 tsp ground cinnamon
2 tbsp unsweetened cocoa powder
12 large egg whites
4oz skim milk
200g whole grain oats
1/3 cup splenda
90g chocolate whey
mix all into large mixing bowl. pour into non stick cake pan - bake at 150 degrees Celsius until firm (around 25mins). leave until cold then cut to size
i cut mine into 8 slices
NUTRITIONAL INFO per slice (if cut into 8slices)
FAT: less than 2g
they dont taste as good as regular pro bars but they are a hell of a lot healthier and very easy to make

3 small banana's came to exactly 300g as luck would have it - otherwise i wouldve had to mess around with cutting them in half and what not

Thanks Guys im deff gona try these
BUT what about calories????
09-29-2005, 02:23 PM #8
I'm thinking cals would be roughly....
21 g of pro x 4 cal/g = 84 cals come from pro
27 g of carb x 4 cal/g = 108 cals come from carb
I'll say 2 g of fat x 9 cal/g = 18 cals come from fat....
Total cals = 210 approximately

Thats based on the info from G-Force...suggestion of 8 slices...but, how big they are...I'm not sure...
As far as I can tell...if its 8 slices...the calories would be for one of the eight slices

Boosting the Cals and Flavour
i found a nicer way to eat them - tastier and more cals
i heated up one slice in the microwave and added 200g non fat Bio-Yogurt, a handful of blackberries and one scoop of whey (i used butter cream toffee which is amazing)
the totals for this dish were:
i had this for breakfast this morning - really nice
give it a try
