Pumpkin Maple Energy Bars


Recommended Posts

I'm not big on breakfasts especially during the school year, but I decided I need to eat something to keep my energy up until lunch. Also, as a vegan, I want to make sure I'm getting enough protein during the day to support my workout routine. Here is an adapted recipe from a blog I follow (No Meat Athlete).

 

Ingredients:

1 can navy beans (15 oz)

1 can pumpkin puree (15 oz)

1/2 c. maple syrup

pumpkin pie spice

salt

1.5 cups steel cut oats

1/2 cup crushed pecans

1 c. protein powder (This is optional. I use the vanilla Vega Sport Performance protein)

 

Drain beans and either mash by hand or run through a food processor. In large bowl, combine beans, pumpkin, syrup, and seasoning. Mix until smooth. Add oats, nuts, and protein powder and combine well. Transfer to a oiled 9x13 baking dish and bake for 15-18 minutes at 350 F. Cool and cut. These can sit on counter for up to 4 days or can be refrigerated and used for 7 days. They also freeze pretty well. thumbsup.gif
