Oatmeal Raisin Coconut Squares

Oatmeal Raisin Coconut Squares

This recipe is a cross between a cookie, a cake and a protein bar... I like it!  It has a bit of a spicy flavor as it contains pureed ginger and nutmeg, and a mix of textures with raisins and shredded coconut. It's a satisfying clean treat that I can get behind!

It's very nutrient dense per serving; Each square contains 300 calories, so it's a perfect post-workout recovery snack. Those calories carry 16g of protein, and quick carbs from the bananas and coconut flour. Pack one along with you for post gym, run or yoga session snack-time to restore the glycogen in them muscles. Get at it.

Oatmeal Raisin Coconut Squares

  • 1 cup egg whites
  • 2 bananas
  • 1 1/2 cups vanilla protein powder
  • 1/2 tsp nutmeg
  • 1/2 tsp cinnamon
  • 1 tsp vanilla extract
  • 1/2 tsp ginger puree
  • 1 cup oats
  • 1/2 cup coconut flour
  • 1/4 cup maple syrup
  • 1/2 cup shredded coconut
  • 3/4 cup raisins

Preheat oven to 350*.

In your food processor, combine egg whites, protein powder and bananas. Blend on high until smooth.

Add in nutmeg, cinnamon, vanilla, ginger, oats and coconut flour. Blend until smooth.

Transfer to a large mixing bowl and add in maple syrup and raisins. Stir until fully mixed.

Line an 8" x 8" cake pan with parchment paper; transfer batter to pan and top with shredded coconut. Bake on center rack in the oven for 22 min.

Watch the oven very carefully; over baking this recipe will cause for a very very very dry puck. Using protein powder in your baking causes for a very fine line between done and dusty. When I removed these from the oven, they were sticky on top still, and set once cooled.

Remove and pull from pan using paper edges and place on cooling rack immediately. Allow to fully cool before slicing into 12 squares. Store in air tight container in fridge for up to 5 days.
