Jamie Eason's LiveFit Recipes: Pumpkin Protein Bars

Jamie Eason sets out to prove that pumpkin desserts can be delicious and nutritious - both peacefully coexisting in one pumpkin protein bar.

Who hasn't experienced the guilty pleasure of a tasty pumpkin scone, cheesecake, or bread at the local coffee shop? Unfortunately, they're pretty unhealthy, but they're so darn delicious! If only there was a healthy down-home pumpkin piece of heaven that someone on a diet could enjoy...

Well, there is?and I've got the recipe! You might not have guessed, but pumpkin is a very nutritious fruit offering a bunch of great health benefits. Unfortunately, those benefits are usually offset by adding too much sugar, simple carbs, and fat. However, this edition of LiveFit Recipes proves that you can throw a whole mess of healthy ingredients together to make a pumpkin protein bar that's soft, supple, and sinfully delicious.

Doesn't seem like a lot of protein for "protein bars" Is it just me?

I thought the same thing.
Better than a giant pumpkin muffin from a diner though.

I have mixed almond milk and pumpkin spice into my protein shake. Delicious!

i agree but keep in mind, you're eating protein at every meal plus you should eat 4 of these at one mid-meal. so 4 servings of these(4 squares) so thats technically 14.8 g protein and 16 g protein with walmuts! not bad i dont think considering you're consuming protein at every serving.
