Looking for a quick way to get some extra fiber in your diet? Try these homemade Protein Pumpkin Fiber Bars! This baked protein bar recipe is loaded with seasonal flavor, easy to make your own, and packed with great macros.

Start this one by taking out either a food processor or blender and making your own homemade oat flour. If you don’t have either, here’s a link to the food processor we’ve been.

Homemade Oat Flour

To make homemade oat flour all you need to do is process or blend 2 cups (or however much you need) of rolled oats until they look like flour. Easy, right?

Don’t have rolled oats or oat flour? Use whatever flour you have!

Pumpkin Bars

Add into your food processor the oat flour you just made, 3 extra large egg whites or 4 large egg whites, 2 teaspoons of vanilla extract, 2 teaspoons of ground cinnamon, 1/4 teaspoon of salt, 1/2 teaspoon of ground cloves, 1 1/2 teaspoons of ground ginger, 1/2 teaspoon of ground nutmeg, 1 teaspoon of baking powder, 1 teaspoon of baking soda, 1 15 ounce can of pumpkin puree, 1 1/2 tablespoons of chia seeds, 1 tablespoon of honey, 1/2 banana, 1/2 cup of unsweetened apple sauce, 1/2 cup of unsweetened milk substitute or fat free milk, 1/4 cup of your choice sweetener, and 3 scoops of a vanilla or natural flavored protein powder.

Process or blend all of those ingredients together until your protein pumpkin fiber bars mix is smooth.

Did you know that chia seeds are a great source of fiber with 5 grams per serving!

Optionally lightly mix/fold into your mix some chocolate chips, dried fruit, sprinkles, nuts, etc.

Take out a baking dish, coat it with some non-stick cooking spray, and pour your mix in. I used a 9 1/2”x13 1/2” dish today.

Remember to adjust your cooking time accordingly if you’re using a bigger or smaller dish. Keep in mind that the thicker your bars are, the longer they’ll take.

Optionally top your bars with some chocolate chips, dried fruit, sprinkles, or nuts like we did today.

Put your protein pumpkin fiber bars into the oven on 350F/176C for around 30-35 minutes or until they pass the toothpick test!

Remove them from the oven, let them cool, and top them! Peanut butter, jelly, cream cheese, Greek yogurt, or give your bars even more protein by topping them with some High Protein Frosting!

    Love these! Absolutely love them – they are an ongoing favorite at our house for 3 years now. We use 2 whole eggs instead of just whites and it still turns out great.

      One of my older recipes getting some love! Thanks Jamie! Now I need to whip these up again…

    I was wondering are flax eggs ok instead of egg whites?

    I did 1/4 cup of honey instead of the sweetener and they ended up not sweet enough for me. I think next time I’ll add more honey or more banana. The texture is great, though.

    These are awesome! I didn’t add the 1/4 cup sweetener, and they were still so yummy. Next time for a sweeter treat I will add it. I have to try really hard not to eat these all day long because they are so good! The texture is perfect and so satisfying. This was the first recipe I have tried from your website and I can’t wait to try more!! So glad I found your amazing website!

      Love it! Glad to hear they were still good too. Thanks for the awesome comment 🙂

    I was looking for home made proein bars to make and found your recipe. Before making it I wanted to be sure about a couple of the ingredients. You said “2 scoops” of rolled oats …and “3 cups” of vanilla protein powder. both seem off to me. could you please clarify. I’m guessing that I should use 3 “scoops” of protein powder and possibly “2 Cups” of oats. Thanks!

    • Derek Howes on June 5, 2013 at 12:00 am

      Thanks for the post! Wow, those are some weird typos I made! Must have been really tired. 2 Cups Oats and 3 Scoops of Protein Powder is correct. Much appreciate you telling me this. Fixed it!
