    Flax Blueberry Bars w/ LG's Lipotropic Protein


    I refuse to cook with straight-up whey or milk derived proteins - anything baked ends up rubbery and inedible. However, other proteins, Genus especially, lend itself very well to many recipes.

    This is what I've been eating for breakfast recently. It's quick, easy, enjoyable, and I can eat it in class without mess.


    1.5C Fresh Ground Flax Meal (I use my coffee grinder)
    6 Eggs
    5 Scoops Lipotropic PB Protein
    1.5 tsp Baking Powder
    1 Tbsp Cinnamon
    ~1 tsp Stevia (play with this to suit your taste, different brands require different amounts)
    5 Tbsp Peanut Butter
    2 Tbsp Oil of your Choice (I've been melting EVCO)
    2 C Frozen Blueberries
    Edit: ~3/4 C Water

    Preheat oven to 350 degrees. Mix dry ingredients in a large bowl, crack in the eggs and add the PB and oil. With a spatula, turn the dough until it forms a dense ball, adding water until you get a nice thick consistency - now fold in the blueberries a bit at a time.

    Line a square baking pan (~9"x9") with foil and spray with Pam. Spread dough (batter, whatever you want to call it) evenly over the surface. If you have some erythritol, sprinkle that over the top - it'll make a nice caramelized "icing" without adding any significant amount of calories or carbs (1-2g at most).

    Bake for 15-30mins. Check on it every few minutes past the 15min mark, and remove from the oven once a knife inserted into the middle comes out clean.


    Makes 6 bars, each with:
    ~30g Fat
    ~28g Prot
    ~10g Carb (+10g Fiber).

    If 10g CHO is too much, just drop the blueberries - you then have a CKD friendly bar that easily satisfies a craving for "breads" without ruining the diet.

    If you're gonna use Chocolate Protein, I'd add a Tbsp or two of cocoa powder. I've kept them over a week in the fridge without issue - stayed nice and tasty.

    I think some wheat gluten might help the recipe as well. You can buy it pure at health food stores or even in the natural section in grocery stores. The great thing about it is the fact that it is almost pure protein for a flour.

    You've probably had it though. It is the main ingredient in almost any "low Carb" bread or wrap. It's texture is like a really fine flour and it has a flour taste with almost a slighty nuttiness too it. You can add it to any recipe and it's great for making things more flexible and pliable. I make pancakes out of straight gluten as well. It is the protein of wheat and that is why some people are allergic too it. Here is the label off of Bob's Red mill version.

    These do sound good. It actually reminded me of something I posted years ago: Banana Flaxseed Muffins

    Some of the stuff in this thread could easily be applied to the the muffins that I posted about too...it might actually make them better.

    As I said in another thread, I now use some almond meal and carbalose flour as well, so it's not just flax meal. Makes for a moister bar.

    I might try and adapt my protein muffin recipe with something like that. The muffins in my recipe taste like regular muffins, but it would be nice to have something different in the arsenal.
