Vanilla Chai Granola bars

I haven’t had the best luck in the past making granola bars, but this time I was determined. I changed the recipe slightly to accommodate for missing ingredients but the result was amazing. These bars are the perfect mix of cinnamon and vanilla, and are amazing warmed up on these chilly winter days! Recipe adapted from the cookbook “Racing Weight” by Matt Fitzgerald and Georgie Fear.

Ingredients:

  • Cooking spray

  • 1/2 tsp baking powder
  • 1/3 cup vanilla, or chocolate protein powder
  • 1/3 cup sugar

Spices:

  • 1 tsp ginger
  • 1/2 tsp ground cloves
  • 1/2 tsp allspice (optional)
  1. Preheat oven to 375 degrees
  2. In a large bowl, mix egg whites, yogurt, vanilla, oil, and spices
  3. Stir in baking powder, sugar, and protein powder
  4. Finally pour in oats and mix until combined
  5. Pour and spread mixture into an 8×8 greased pan
  6. Bake for 15-16 min. (you can bake longer if you want them less chewy)
