Oatmeal Gold BarsDec 07, 2020
Our version of Oatmeal Gold protein bars available at Popeyes or Supplement King in Saskatoon, Saskatchewan. These bars are loaded with energizing carbohydrates from oats and Kodiak waffle mix.
If you follow us on Instagram, you will know that we love the Oatmeal Gold protein bars in the flavor "Natural." The bars are an energizing on-the-go breakfast and are a fantastic pre- or post-workout snack!
In attempt to increase the protein content of our recipe, we found that the addition of protein powder was the culprit of my many "failed" attempts to "dupe" the recipe! So our version of the Oatmeal Gold bars are substantially lower in protein at 11g total compared to 20g.
That being said, we've received many rave reviews of this recipe. In fact, we had it on our old Vitality blog and had several people reach out and ask that we bring it back. So here we are. We hope you enjoy!

- 1 egg
- ½ cup unsweetened apple sauce
- 3/4 cup unsweetened almond milk (or other milk)
- 3/4 cup egg whites
- 3 tablespoons (60g) honey
- 2 tablespoons (30g) almond butter (or other nut butter)
- 1 teaspoon vanilla extract
- 2 cups (160g) old fashioned rolled oats
- 1 cup (106g) Kodiak Cakes Flapjack & Waffle Mix*
- pinch of salt
*Found at Costco or Coop in Saskatoon.
- Whisk together the wet ingredients including the egg, apple sauce, unsweetened almond milk, egg whites, honey, almond butter, and vanilla.
- Gently stir in the oats, Kodiak Cake mix, and salt until combined. The batter will be quite liquid-y.
- Spray your pan or muffin tin with a non-stick spray. Pour the batter into an 8x8 pan if you would prefer a "bar" shape. Alternatively, portion into 12 muffin cups.*
- Bake at 350F for 30-35 minutes.
- Let cool before removing from the muffin tin or before cutting the recipe into bars.
- We recommend storing the bars in an airtight container in the freezer and thawing or microwaving one when you are ready to enjoy. They are quite moist so they tend to spoil quickly unless frozen! :)
*Note: if you are baking into 12 muffins reduce the cooking time to 25-30 minutes.
