Amy’s Morning Glory Squares

Morning Glory Squares
(you could also bake these in muffin tins)

2 1/2 c oats
1 c Splenda granular
1 Tbs cinnamon
2 tsp baking soda
1/4 tsp salt
1 c grated carrots
1/2 c chopped walnuts
3/4 c raisins
5 c eggbeaters
2 tsp vanilla
1 small apple, diced
1/2 c unsweetened organic reduced fat coconut

Mix all. Pour into 9×13 dish sprayed with pam. Bake at 375 for 35-40 minutes. As with all these oat bars, let cool and store in fridge. They don’t taste good warm out of the oven (they taste “eggy”) but taking out of the fridge and eating toasted or at room temperature they’re delicious.

Although these are delicious (seriously, these are my favorite to date) I’m not thrilled with the macros on these yet, next week I will add vanilla protein powder to up the protein content but not enough to change the texture/taste. As is, makes 12 servings and each serving:

203 calories
5 g fat
25 g carb
14.5 g protein

    any – is it really 5 cups of eggbeaters?

    I’m wanting to play with your base recipe to replace the coconut, but I’m terrified of the 5 cups of eggbeaters instruction!

    Congratulations on your move 🙂 I have deck envy now.

    Salma – Yes, really 5 cups of eggbeaters. Good luck with the recipe alteration, let me know if you come up with something good.

    FWIW, the coconut really makes it taste gooooood 🙂

The origin of the name Amyella.

Here's my deal. It's wicked exciting!
