Serving Size: 1 bar
Prep Time: 10 minutes
Total Time: 25 minutes
Nutrition Facts: 142 calories / 17g carbs / 6g protein / 6g fat
1 ½ cups quick cooking oats
4 scoops unflavored collagen peptides
¼ cup raw slivered almonds
¼ teaspoon salt
¼ teaspoon cinnamon
3 tablespoons honey
3 tablespoons melted coconut oil
2 tablespoons egg whites
¼ cup dried cranberries
Preheat the oven to 325 degrees. Prepare a 8x8-inch baking dish by lining with parchment paper or foil and spraying lightly with nonstick cooking spray.
Mix the first 5 ingredients (through cinnamon) together in a medium bowl. Add the honey, coconut oil, and egg whites and mix well with a fork or spatula. Stir in the cranberries.
Pour the oat mixture into the prepared baking dish and press down firmly to create a packed, even layer. We find that using a silicone spatula or spoon is easiest!
Bake for 13-14 minutes or until lightly browned. Remove from the oven and let the pan cool completely on a cooling rack.
When the bars are room temperature, remove the bars from the pan by using the parchment paper or foil overhand. Place on a cutting board and slice into 12 squares.
The bars keep well for up to 5 days at room temperature, up to a week in the refrigerator, or up to 3 months in the freezer.
We used “Vital” brand unflavored collagen peptides but all brands of unflavored collagen peptides should have identical macros.
