Looking to mix up your morning oatmeal routine? Or looking for a mid afternoon snack option? How about a protein packed Blueberry Coconut baked oatmeal bar you can easily prepare ahead of time? There are so many flavour combinations to try! Here’s our first of many to come.
Blueberry Coconut Oatmeal Bars (makes 12):
1/2 cup of unsweetened, shredded coconut
2 cups of quick oats
2 scoops of vanilla protein powder (we used whey but you could sub in a vegan friendly option but the macros will change)
1 1/2 cup unsweetened vanilla almond milk (we use Silk)
1/2 cup frozen wild blueberries
2 tbsp dried blueberries (optional)
1/3 cup egg whites
3 tbsp honey
3 packets stevia (powdered)
1) Combine all wet ingredients in a large measuring cup or bowl.
2) Mix all dry ingredients together in a larger bowl (minus the frozen blueberries). Then add the wet ingredients to the dry ones and once combined, fold in 1/2 cup of blueberries (don’t over mix).
3) Grease a 9″x11″ baking dish (I used coconut oil) and scatter a few berries on the bottom, pour the mixture over top and spread flat, then top with a few more frozen blueberries.
4) Bake at 400 degrees for 20-25 mins or until slightly browned along the edges. Cool and cut into 12 bars or serve warm in a bowl with warm unsweetened vanilla almond milk on top!
