Oats on the Go?

Hey…

Does anyone have any good recipes for oatmeal bars that I could take to school and wherever with me? I’m ideally looking to have about a cup of oats per bar (thats before cooking). Thanks guys.

These bars provide a nice snack, and they?re good for that second post-workout meal after your shake.

Ingredients:

2 cups raw oat bran
2 cups rolled oats
1 cup whole wheat flour
1 cup egg whites
1 cup nonfat milk
2 cups chocolate whey protein powder
? cup granulated Splenda
5-6 scoops maltodextrin (180 grams)
1/2 tsp salt
1 tsp cinnamon
1 tsp vanilla extract
2 tablespoons oil (canola or olive)
Instructions:

Mix it all together in a big bowl, then spread it out on a large nonstick cooking tray. Add some cooking spray, or wipe a little olive oil on the pan with a paper towel. Bake for 25-30 minutes @ 350 degrees.

Cut into 10 pieces.
