Pumpkin Protein Blondies


I know it’s not fall yet but I cracked the Pumpkin open! These yummy squares are high in protein and low in fat. Delicious!


•1 Cup Whey protein powder (I used Allmax cookies & cream Hexapro)
•1/3 Cup ground oats
•1 tsp baking powder
•1/8 tsp each nutmeg, ginger, cloves, allspice
•½ tsp cinnamon
•Pinch Himalayan pink salt
•1-1/4 Cup pure pumpkin puree
•½ cup 0% greek yogurt
•4 egg whites (½ cup)
•2 tsp pure vanilla extract
•1 Tbsp xylitol
•¼ cup chopped dark chocolate or chocolate chips

Preheat oven to 350ºF. Line 8×8 pan with parchment and grease with coconut oil.  Combine protein powder, oats, baking powder and spices in large bowl until well combined.  In separate bowl whisk pumpkin, yogurt, egg whites, vanilla and xylitol until well incorporated.  Stir into dry ingredients and pour into prepared pan. Bake for 25-30 minutes.  Cool in pan.  Melt chocolate in double boiler or microwave and drizzle over the cooled loaf, chill for another 10 minutes until chocolate set and slice into 12 bars. Store in fridge. Enjoy!
