Eggology Egg White Recipe of the Day: Homemade Oat Protein Bars

Healthy Homemade Oat Protein Bars


10 tbsp natural peanut butter
3/4 cup Eggology egg whites
5 scoops whey protein (I used 3 chocolate and 2 vanilla)
2 cups oats
1/2 cup reduced-fat crunchy peanut butter
1/2 cup soy milk (or fat-free milk)


1. Mix the peanut butter and Eggology egg whites in a bowl.
2. Microwave on high for 30 seconds, and mix well (so that the mixture appears smooth).
3. Repeat 4-5 times until all traces of egg whites have dissolved into the peanut butter, and your mixture is a smooth consistent one.
4. Gradually add the protein (one scoop at a time) and stir into the mixture.
5. Next, add the soy milk and follow with the oats. Continue mixing until a thick 'sticky' mixture is present.

Smooth the thick mixture into a 13x9 or so tray and leave for 20-30 minutes in the fridge. Cut into 12 equal size bars.
