Ingredients

  • 2/3 cup (100g) rolled oats or Instant Oats
  • 1.5 cups (150g) Pumpkin Pie Impact Whey Protein
  • 1 tsp. cinnamon
  • 1 tsp. ground ginger
  • 2-4 tbsp. milk
  • 2/3 cup (100g) pumpkin puree
  • 1 tbsp. coconut oil (melted)
  • 1 cup (100g) dark chocolate cubes

Method

1. First, blend the rolled oats until you get a powder. If you’re using Instant Oats, you don’t need to blend them. Add the protein powder and spices and pulse to combine.

2. Add the milk and pumpkin puree and pulse again, then pour in the melted coconut oil and blend until fully combine and a dough forms. If the mixture is too dry to form a dough, add a little more milk, tablespoon by tablespoon. If it’s too wet, add a little more whey protein.

3. Line an 8″x8″ square baking tin or a loaf tin with cling film and press the mixture firmly down using the back of a spoon. Refrigerate to set for at least 45 minutes.

4. Once set, cut into bars. Melt the chocolate and coat each bar with chocolate. Place back into the fridge to set for 10-15 minutes.
