Ingredients:

  • 1 cup almond butter
  • 3 ounces vanilla protein powder
  • ½ cup maple syrup
  • 2 eggs
  • 2 cups rolled oats
  • ½ cup unsweetened coconut
  • 1 teaspoon baking soda

Preheat your oven to 350 degrees. Spray a 9 by 11 inch pan with non-stick spray. Mix almond butter, protein powder, and maple syrup in a small bowl with an electric mixer, then beat in the eggs. Stir in the rolled oats, baking soda, and coconut and mix well. Pour the mixture into the baking dish and firmly press it down into the pan with the back of a spoon. Bake the bars for 12 minutes or until the top gets slightly brown. Let them cool, then cut them into squares. Store them in an airtight container and grab one and go in the mornings!

Enjoy this yummy, filling, and easy breakfast!
