Bake a batch of these soft and chewy Banana Protein Baked Oatmeal Bars with all the sweet flavor of protein bar without fat or added sugar! The perfect high protein breakfast, snack or post workout meal.These bars are kinda like a cross between baked oats and a protein bar. They’re basically oatmeal that’s baked in the oven, but has protein powder and egg whites in it for a protein bump!Kill 2 birds with one stone I guess!Another reason I really liked these is coz they’re freezer-friendly. This was actually the first time I actually froze some of my meal-prep snacks/breakfast add-ons.I usually just eat them in like 2-3 days, but these went on for week!
