Ingredients


1 cup whole wheat flour

2 cups oatmeal
(We used Quaker Oats.)

1/2 cup Splenda
(We used the box that measures cup for cup like sugar.)

4 scoops (1 1/3 cups) protein powder
(We used GNC Pro Performance 100% Whey Protein Vanilla Flavor.)

1/4 tsp baking powder

1/2 cup pineapple juice
(From the can of pineapple.)

1/2 cup water

7 Egg Whites

2 tsp vanilla extract

1 tsp lemon extract

1 can (20 oz.) unsweetened pineapple chunks, drained
(Juice used above.)

1 package (.2 oz.) unflavored gelatine


1. Preheat the oven to 325 degrees Fahrenheit. Spray the trays of an 8-mini-loaf baking pan with fat-free cooking spray.

2. Combine the first 5 ingredients, whole wheat flour, oatmeal, Splenda, protein powder and baking soda in a mixing bowl.

3. Pour the next five ingredients, pineapple juice through lemon extract in a separate bowl and whip together. Stir the pineapple juice mixture into the flour mixture until it's thoroughly combined. Don't over mix or the loaves will come out too firm.

4. Divide the mixture evenly into 8 trays of the mini-loaf pan. (Each mini-loaf is composed of approximately 1/3 cup plus 1 tablespoon mixture.)

5. Cut the pineapple chunks up. Put them in a bowl, pour the package of gelatine over the top and mix the gelatine and pineapple together. Divide the pineapple and place equal amounts on top of each of the mini-loaves.

6. Bake for 25 minutes or until a wooden toothpick inserted in the middle comes out clean. Cool in the pan on a wire rack. Remove from the pan and serve.

Yield: 8 Servings


 Pineapple Protein Bars

This is a Freezer Friendly Recipe!

Freeze bars for easy re-heating later. Make sure they're tightly sealed inside freezer safe bags or plastic containers.

Microwave each bar for approximately 1.5 to 2 minutes. To make sure it comes back moist, put the frozen bar in a microwave safe bowl. Cover the bowl with a damp cloth or paper towel. It'll taste just like it came out of the oven fresh.
