Easy Lemon Protein Squares

These protein squares are quick & easy to make, and quick & easy to eat! Make them Sunday night and have the perfect snack for your busy week days. Rather than grabbing potato chips out of the vending machine at work, bring a bag of your healthier Lemon Protein Squares!!

I found this recipe on Jamie Eason’s LiveFit Recipes on BodyBuilding.com and just made a few minor adjustments: less Splenda (because I’m not a big fan of sweetener) and less lemon flavor (because I didn’t want to over lemon since I was using less sweetener). Feel free to adjust this to fit your tastebuds!

Ingredients:

  • 1 Cup Organic Oat Flour
  • 2 Scoops Vanilla Whey Protein
  • 1/4 tsp Salt
  • 1/2 tsp Baking Soda
  • Crystal Light Pure Lemonade – made w/ Truvia to avoid Aspartame — I used 3 of the single serving packets for 16.9oz water each *Recipe called for 4 packets*
  • 4 Egg Whites
  • 8 oz Baby Food Applesauce (or Regular Unsweetened Applesauce)
  • 4 oz Water
  • 1/4 Cup Splenda/Truvia *Recipe called for 1/2 Cup*

Prep:

Preheat your over to 350 degrees, check that your oven rack is in the center of the oven. Use non-stick spray to coat an 8×8 baking pan or glass pyrex dish (I only had a baking pan). Mix dry ingredients in one bowl, mix wet ingredients in another bowl, then add your wet ingredients to your dry, and mix together. Pour the mixture into your 8×8 pan/dish and bake 23 minutes.  For accurate nutritional count, cut your baked goods into 16 squares, with 2 squares being the recommended serving size. These are 86 cals, 1g fat, 10g carbs, and 9g protein. My version of the recipe had slightly less cals & carbs due to the cut back on Splenda & Crystal Light, but I still thought they tasted pretty good! Try it out and enjoy!!
