Pumpkin Protein Bars

Instead of spending tons of money on protein bars, I experimented with making my own!  You can eat these in the morning for breakfast, as a midday meal, or a pre-workout meal.  I even eat these protein-filled little treats as a dessert :)

Protein Pumpkin Spice Cake


  • 1 cup whole wheat flour
  • 2 scoops vanilla whey protein
  • 2 tsp cinnamon (or more!)
  • A pinch of nutmeg
  • A pinch of allspice
  • 1/2 tsp baking soda
  • 1/4 tsp salt
  • 4 egg whites
  • 1/2 c honey, or other sweetener
  • 1/2 c canned pumpkin
  • 1/4 c water
Mix dry ingredients in a bowl.  Mix wet ingredients in a bowl.  Pour wet ingredients into dry ingredients.  Add walnuts or pecans if desired.  Bake at 350 degrees F for 20-30 minutes.  *For a moist cake, cover immediately with foil after taking it out of the oven.  It will contain all the moisture.
