High Protein Oat Bars

Oats are an amazing complex carbohydrate to have for breakfast as it digests slower than simple carbohydrates, meaning you feel fuller for longer. This recipe can be made on the weekend and is great for when you’re busy on the weekdays and need a quick pick me up. If you like the Starbucks oat bars, you’ll love these! The addition of protein powder instead of regular flour will also keep you fuller, and when baked, you can’t even tell this recipe has protein powder in it.
