Delicious Homemade Protein Bars

4 ounces protein powder (I use whey, but you can use soy or hemp if you like)
1/2 cup oat bran
1/2 cup whole wheat flour
1/4 cup wheat germ
1/2 tsp kosher salt
3/4 cup dried cranberries
3/4 cup chopped walnuts
1/2 cup bittersweet chocolate chips (I use Ghiridelli’s)
12.3 ounce package soft silken tofu (make sure it says soft)
1/2 cup apple juice (I use Martenelli’s)
1/2 cup packed dark brown sugar
2 large eggs, beaten (egg can be replaced with ground flax seed-mix 1 tbls ground flaxseed with 3 tbls water per egg)
2/3 cup natural peanut butter ( I use Naturally more with flaxseed in in, yum!)
canola oil or spray for pan

Preheat oven to 350 degrees
Line bottom of a 13 x 9 inch glass baking dish with parchment paper (insures even cooking and pops out of pan easier) and spray with canola oil. Set aside.
In a large mixing bowl, combine protein powder, wheat flour, what germ, oat bran and salt. Set aside.
Coarsely chip cranberries and walnuts and place in small bowl. Set aside.
In medium size bowl, whisk tofu until smooth. Add apple juice, brown sugar, eggs (or flax) and peanut butter, one at a time, whisking to combine after each addition. Add this mixture to the protein powder mixture and stir well until combined. Fold in cranberries, nuts and chocolate chips until incorporated. Spread evenly into baking dish. Bake at 350 degrees for 35-40 minutes. Remove from oven and place on a cooling rack. Cool completely before cutting into squares. Store in airtight container.
