Recipe Ingredients for peanut butter protein bar with chocolate and raisins

8 oz Designer Whey protein powder, chocolate
1 cup whole wheat flour
2 cups rolled oats
1/2 teaspoon cinnamon
4/5 teaspoon salt
1/4 cup packed Splenda brown sugar
1/2 cup chocolate chips
1/2 raisins
12 3/10 oz cup silken tofu
1/2 cup peanut butter
2 teaspoons vanilla extract

Recipe Directions for peanut butter protein bar with chocolate and raisins

  1. Preheat the oven to 350 degrees F (325 degrees F for a glass pan). Lightly spray a 9- by 13- inch baking pan and a baking tray with nonstick spray.

  2. Mix together the protein powder, flour, oats, cinnamon, and salt in a large bowl. Crumble in the brown sugar, rubbing it with your fingers to break up any clumps. Stir in the chocolate chips and raisins.

  3. Measure the tofu, peanut butter, and vanilla into a blender, mixing until well combined. Add the wet mixture to the dry, and mix patiently until thoroughly blended. (You may have to use your hands -- it will be a thick batter, verging on a dough.)

  4. Transfer the mixture to the prepared pan, patting it evenly into place with your hands. Bake in the center of the oven for 15 minutes, then remove from the oven and cut into 34 evenly sized bars . Place the bars on the prepared baking tray and bake for another 15 minutes, or until golden around the edges. (For extra-crunchy bars, turn off the oven and leave them in there for up to 45 minutes longer.) Remove the bars from the oven, and place them on a rack to cool.

  5. Eat the bars within a few hours, or seal them in a heavy zip-style plastic bag and store in the freezer. For maximum crispness, "refresh" them in a toaster oven after defrosting.
