Starbucks may have coffee right, but not oat bars

We've all tried and fallen in love with the Starbucks Oat Bars at one point or another, once you realize what goes into them, the love affair often ends.
Not only are the OatBars loaded with sugar, they also have somewhere around 45grams of fat per bar.
Here's a recipe that should satisfy the craving and leave you feeling a million times better!

Michele's OatBars

2 scoops protein powder (used plain soy)
2 cups oats
1/2 cup flaxmeal
1/2 cup coconut
1 cup raw sunflower seeds
1 tsp nutmeg
2 tsp cinnamon

1 cup applesauce
25 dates (chopped)
juice of 2 lemons
rind from 1 lemon

Mix the wet ingredients with the dry and put in 9x11 pan that has been sprayed with PAM.

Bake at 350 for about 20 minutes, let cool, cut into squares and enjoy!
