Jamie Eason's LiveFit Recipes: Low-Carb Apple Cinnamon Protein Bars

Apple, cinnamon, protein â?? these are a few of my favorite things. Here I combine them into a recipe thatâ??ll make your snacking healthy, portable and delicious!

To me, there's nothing more useful or yummy than an awesome protein bar. This one doesn't just taste great - it's also loaded with healthy ingredients, including almond meal, whey protein powder, cinnamon, egg whites and fat-free cottage cheese.

I love bars because they're not only a great stay-at-home snack but also the perfect grab-and-go alternative. So join me in the kitchen. This will be fun!

Sorry such a late response but I just read this. I am a pastry student and using whole wheat pastry flour in substitute for almond flour is not a good idea. It will taste better don't get me wrong but the almond flour is denser and supplies the nutrients you need from almonds and less carbs. As for the pastry flour it has more protein to create more gluten in essence more carbs. I hope this helped again sorry so late.

I made these today. They're okay but taste a little bitter to me. Maybe I did something wrong. But I love the carrot cake protein bars!

I agree! I made them twice because I thought I messed up the first batch but the second was even worse. The carrot ones are awesome!

I didn't really like it either. I don't know if it was the almond flour or the whey that made the texture strange. I think the chocolate ones that Jamie makes are bomb though. The ones that use pumpkin puree are the best; so moist and cakey with just enough sweetness!! I used Cellucor Cinnamon Swirl in this recipe with Xylosweet and it was way too sweet. I also ground my own almond flour in the VitaMix with the Blue Diamond Coffee Almonds so there was a lot of flavor going on but the texture was off. I wouldn't make them again.

Cooking whey denatures it, wouldn't casein powder be better as this doesn't happen?

How many bars of the apple cinnamon protein bars equal one serving? Four pumpkin protein bars equal one serving... Is it the same with these bars?

Just made these...I had to substitute some things...like chocolate whey instead of vanilla and splenda instead of stevia. They turned out okay...kind of bland but not too bad. I should've put some walnuts in the mix...they would've tasted better with them. I wanted to make the pumpkin bars but can't find pumpkin anywhere right now! (stationed in Germany and can't seem to find it!...anyone know of a good substitution for the pumpkin?)

just made mine a little sweet for my liking, and the almond meal makes them a little dry, maybe i didnt add enough cottage cheese (not really a fan of Cottage Cheese). love the other recipes so might stick to them. great idea these protein bars though :)

Are we suppose to use baking powder or baking sodal Her other protein bars says to use baking soda? Maybe instead of almond flour just use oat flour like in her other bars. Already bought all igredients to make these. Maybe will use the baby apple sauce instead of fresh apple.

I love them!!! The only thing I did different is ground my own almonds that could make a difference.

Mine turned out EXACTLY the same as yours. I couldn't even eat them. I am just going to stick to the other recipes.

Just an FYI, we use LITE Apple sauce instead of grating an apple. They still came out great!
PS- We cut them into 18 squares...lol!

Yes you can use almonds and grind them yourself. I made this last weekend and grinded the almonds myself and they turned out good.

These are not good. Way to dry for me. I really do like the other recipes from Jamie, but not this one. If you do make these, make sure you have a big glass of water with you just to get them down your throat.

I made these today......Hmmm not a fan! They sound great in theory....but too dry and too sweet.....they need more moisture, apple and cinnamon flavour.....and taste less than dry baking powder....I might try it again at a later stage....but with a few adjustments......sooo sad....because they sounded yummy!
