Protein Lemon Squares!

So today I was having the biggest craving for my Mom’s homemade lemon squares! Normally I’d just text her and ask for the recipe, but since I’m on prep for a bikini contest….that’s a big no. So I got the new 1Up Nutrition Liquid Gold out and made a healthy version and OMG my taste buds are doing a happy dance!

Looks like it would be full of fat and sugar right? Wrong! Here’s how to make them!

1 C Oat Flour

2 Scoops 1 Up Nutrition Liquid Gold Protein Powder

1 T Stevia in the Raw

Dash of Pink Sea Salt

1/2 C sugar free Applesauce (optional! I added some almond milk instead)

Lemon Zest

•Heat oven to 350°

•Mix Dry and Wet Ingredients separately then combine

•Spray a small square baking pan (mine was 6×6) with cooking spray

•Put the mixture in the pan and press it down so it’s flat, or as flat as you can get it!

•Bake for 20 min. Be careful you don’t overcook them or they will get dry!

•Remove carefully and cut into 12 “lemon squares”

•Transfer to plate

•Garnish with lemon zest

•Drizzle with “frosting”

•Garnish with a lemon slice for a pretty presentation!
