Banana blueberry protein bars

I was a bit lazy with food prep for lunches this week. I usually do brown rice and chicken and then only have to add veg to take for lunch but didn’t do it yesterday. I didn’t have any bars made up either. This was basically due to not going to the supermarket for extra ingredients. (This may be TMI but it’s THAT time of the month and I knew if I went shopping I’d end up caving and getting something I’d rather not. Like ice cream….. Mmmmmmm……). Anyways, I did intend to make the same carrot cake protein bars as last week, but since I was avoiding the shops I changed it up and made blueberry banana ones- and they’re delish! I always have peeled and chopped bananas in the freezer, as well as blueberries, and other berries,( and mango’s, spinach etc) for smoothies. So I put together pretty much the same protein bar recipe, changed slightly because I didn’t check the recipe and made it from memory.
I used 3 frozen bananas (I’m sure you can use fresh too)
1/4 cup Greek yoghurt
3 egg whites
1/2 cup frozen blueberries
1 cup oat flour (I just blended up rolled oats to make my own)
1/4 tsp sea salt
1/2 teaspoon baking powder
2 scoops vanilla protein powder (I like Define Vanilla)
Preheat your oven to 175 degrees Celsius or 350 F.
Mix all the wet ingredients. I actually put my bananas and yoghurt in the food processor because the bananas were frozen. (On a side note, this was so yummy!! I’m going to do it again, and re-freeze for banana fro-yo. I loved it, had to remind myself I’m actually trying to prepare for the week, not just scoffing food!). Then fold in egg whites. Fold in dry ingredients. I had used a little coconut oil on an Pyrex dish, then I covered it with bran so the bars didn’t stick, and in my head they were going to be cheese-cakeish so I thought a bottom would suit. They aren’t, and the bran didn’t make much of a difference. They came out really easily, but so did the carrot cake ones from last week. Anywho, bake this in the oven for about 40 mins, or until you get a clean skewer. My oven is super hot so I got them out early, keep an eye on them when they brown on top. Enjoy!
