After a trip to pick way more apples than we could get through, I knew the perfect use for some of the hand-picked apples – my healthy apple pie protein bars!

The combo of apple sauce + apple chunks gives it a nice apple flavor while keeping it moist too.

These bars are easily kept gluten-free by using oat flour. You and make your own oat flour at home – watch how!

  2. In a large bowl mix together the oat flour, protein powder, cinnamon, nutmeg, clove, ginger, allspice, baking powder, and sea salt.
  3. In a smaller bowl mix together the apple sauce, apple, maple syrup, egg and vanilla extract.  Stir the wet into the dry until just mixed.
  4. Pour into the baking dish, and bake for 25-28 minutes, or until a toothpick comes out clean after being inserted into the center.  Allow to cool fully before cutting.

How to store homemade protein bars

After the bars are cooled off completely, cut them into 9 pieces.

Wrap the bars in parchment paper, then place them in a sealed bag or container. You can store them in the fridge for 5 days, or freeze them for up to 6 months! Simply place it in the fridge or on the counter to defrost.

Now they really are grab n go bars!

I always leave our bars in the fridge too! I think they taste better that way. These sound great. 80 is such a kick butt release! Love

Oh yes, fridge bars tend to stay moister for me too. What’s your 80 launch theme? We’re doing 80s 🙂

Those sound delicious! I’ve recently stopped getting any “brand name” protein bars because they’re just so processed – this seems like a perfect alternative! Thanks!

This looks amazing! I really need to buy some protein powder. I don’t know anything about protein powder, where do you buy it? I’ve seen it at Trader Joe’s but I don’t know if it’s good or not. Where do you buy yours? This is a great grab and go breakfast and would love to make it!

I picked it up at Fred Meyers in the nutrition section. They don’t have a very big selection for protein powder, but Freddies is super convenient for me since I do most of my grocery shopping there. I’ve got some at whole foods before, but never really looked into it at TJs. You’ll have to tell me what you find!
