Protein Lemon Bars

These tangy lemon protein bars are a perfect dessert that’s light on sweetness and macros, but high in protein and flavor. These bars taste MUCH better after they have rested overnight in the fridge, so feel free to make ahead for the week. We suggest to portion and tightly wrap in saran wrap to preserve freshness and flavor.


  • 80g Oats
  • 75g Ascent Lemon Sorbet Whey
  • 1g Salt

  4. Combine wet and dry ingredients.
  5. This recipe uses the apple sauce as sweetener but you can add additional sweetener to taste if you prefer your squares to be less tart.
