Pumpkin Pie Protein Bars

I don't know about you but whenever I find healthy brownie or muffin recipes once I have cooked them they tend to turn out more like bullets than anything that is likely to win friends and influence people with it deliciousness but these I can proudly say are an exception to that rule

Heres what you are going to need

500g Pureed Pumpkin
150g Apple Puree (you can use baby apple food also)
1/2 Cup Splenda
2 Tsp Cinnamon
1.5 Tsp Ground Ginger
1/2 Tsp Ground Clove
1 Tsp Baking Powder
1 Tsp Baking Soda
1/2 Tsp Salt
2 Tsp Vanilla Essence
4 Large Egg Whites
2 Cups of Oat Flour (finely blended Oats)
2 Scoops Plain or Vanilla Protein Powder
1/2 Cup Almond Milk (or Dairy)
(optional add Crushed Walnuts, I didn't add as the baby was having these too)

Method
PreHeat over to 175C
Line a Pyrex dish with Baking paper
Mix the first 11 ingredients until well combined
Stir thru the last 3 (4 if you add nuts) ingredients and pour into the dish
Use a glass dish if you can as it will help stop the mixture from cooking too quickly
pop the Dish into the oven on a middle shelf and cook for about 30 min or until a knife comes out clean
Once cooked remove from oven and allow to cook a little before cutting into squares, without the walnuts 2 squares is about 100 Calories
