    chopped apples (about ¼ inch pieces)

Instructions

  • Preheat your oven to 350°F. Line a 9x9 in. square baking pan with parchment paper and spray with nonstick cooking spray.

  • In a large bowl, combine the oats, quinoa, baking powder, flax seed, and cinnamon and stir until evenly distributed.

  • In another bowl, whisk together the maple syrup, applesauce, AllWhites 100% liquid egg whites, almond butter, and vanilla.

  • Pour the wet ingredients over the dry ingredients and stir until mixed thoroughly to form a thick batter. Fold in the apples and pecans. Pour the batter into the prepared pan and smooth with a spatula.

  • Bake on the center rack of the oven for 25 - 35 minutes until the bars are golden brown and firm to the touch.

  • Remove and cool completely in the pan. Slice into bars and store in an airtight container in the refrigerator for several days, or freeze to keep longer.
