    These taste great but are definitely a bulking recipe, NOT to be a staple during cutting!!

    2 cups rolled oats
    1/2 cup barley malt syrup
    1/3 cup almond butter (or other nut butter)
    1/2 teaspoon cinnamon
    1/2 teaspoon vanilla extract
    1/4 cup almonds or walnuts or pecans or hazelnuts or any other nuts or a combination of any kind nuts, roasted and chopped

    Place all ingredients in a big bowl.
    Moisten your hands and mix all ingredients thoroughly (can also use mixer).
    Moisten your hands to prevent sticking, and form the mixture into equal sized balls or press into a pan and slice into bars.

    You don't have to bake these, they are the right consistency to eat right away...and you should keep 'em in the fridge to make sure they don't get too soft.

    These are more cutting-diet friendly, as a carb/protein snack...but they have to be baked. Here's what you need:

    3 1/2 cups quick oats
    1 1/2 cups powdered non-fat milk (any supermarket has this)
    4 scoops low carb protein powder (I like chocolate or vanilla for this...)
    1 cup sugar-free maple syrup (any brand you like...)
    2 egg whites, beaten
    1/4 cup orange juice
    1 teaspoon vanilla
    1/4 c. natural applesauce

    Here's what you do:

    1. Preheat oven to 325 and spray a baking sheet with pam.
    2. Mix oats, powdered milk, and protein powder in bowl and blend well.
    3. In separate bowl, combine eggwhites, orange juice, applesauce, and the sugar-free syrup and blend well.
    4. Stir liquid mixture into dry ingredients until blended. The consistency will be thick and similar to cookie dough.
    5. Spread batter onto pan and bake until edges are crisp and browned.
    6. Cut into bars and store in fridge or freezer.

    Have I got a bar for you

    3 cups rolled oats (or quick oats, not steel cut)
    1 cup non-fat dry milk
    1/3 cup oat flour (or whole wheat flour)
    1 scoop vanilla protien powder
    1 tsp. baking powder
    2/3 cup splenda
    3 tbs. cinnamon
    1 cup chopped dry apples
    1 cup unsweetened applesauce
    1 cup fat free cottage cheese
    1 cup egg whites
    2/3 cup sugar-free Torani's vanilla syrup (or 2 tsp. vanilla extract and 2/3 cup water)

    Mix all dry ingredients in a large bowl. Add dried apples and toss to coat. Add remaining ingredients and blend well. Spray a 10x13 pan with non-stick cooking spray. Spread batter into prepared pan and bake for 30 mins. at 350 degrees. Cool completely and cut into 10 bars. Each bar is 195 calories, 2g fat, 34g carbs, 5g fiber, 15g protein

    You can cut these into fewer, larger bars depending on your dietary needs, or add more protien powder, just add more water. These are sooo yummy.

    maybe, I've never tried it. I know I used steel cut the first time I made them and they were like bricks...and not good bricks...you could play around with it though
