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.

Hi! So I tried to modify this recipe to make it more Paleo friendly (not 100%) and cut the oat flour into 1C, and added 3/4C Almond Flour & 1/3C Coconut Flour. Turned out great! AND I also baked it in my mini-cupcake pan so I had a ton bite-size protein treats to take with me everywhere!

This is a must try! I love pumpkin anything. So difficult to find organic pumpkin (in a can) where I live though, but whatever. I'm giving this one a try!

I'm curious how Jamie's suggestion to use xylitol fits in with her direction to eat a clean, natural diet. Wouldn't honey be a better option? I know you will add some sugar calories, but it's at least natural and unprocessed...
