Updated August 2, 2010

Ingredients

  • 1 package (1 pound 0.5 ounces) lemon bar mix
  • Juice of 1 whole lemon (about 3 tablespoons)
  • 1/2 cup vanilla-flavored protein powder
  • 1 container (8 ounces) fat-free, cholesterol-free egg product
  • Powdered sugar, if desired

Steps

  • 1
    Heat oven to 350°. Press dry crust from lemon bar mix in bottom of square pan (8x8x2 or 9x9x2 inches). Bake 10 minutes.
  • 2
    Add enough water to lemon juice to equal 1/2 cup. Place filling from lemon bar mix and protein powder in large bowl. Stir in egg product and lemon juice mixture with wire whisk until smooth. Pour filling over hot crust.

  • Anne R. Shares her Recipe "The best diet for me includes small meals and enough protein to help me heal and feel good during treatments. I use protein powder to boost the protein in foods that I can eat, as in these lemon bars. For a zestier lemon flavor, I add grated lemon peel to the filling."
  • Low fiber; low residue
  • A Note from Dr. Ghosh These bars are a great snack or mini-meal when you are on the go! A daily dose of light exercise for 30 minutes can help combat your fatigue and lift your spirits.
