Protein Cinnamon Swirl Bars

I love Jamie Eason recipes. 
They are made with simple natural ingredients, 
very adaptable to your personal taste, and of course, delicious. 

These bars are one of them. 

This is truly a dish one may easily devour half of without even thinking.
 Be warned. 

These bars are a perfect after treat to enjoy with some coffee or tea.

These will also make your house smell like cinnamon bliss. 
Not a bad thing at all. 

I did adapt the recipe to the ingredients I had on hand, (you can find the original recipe here), and these are definitely something I plan to keep stocked in my freezer when in need of a sweet treat.

Swirl mixture: 
 1/4  cup truvia ( or 1/4 cup sugar or sugar sweetener of choice)
 2 tsp cinnamon
1 1/2 cups oat flour
2 scoops protein powder ( I used this one)
1 tbs baking powder
1/2 tsp salt
6-7pks truvia  ( 1/4 cup sugar or sugar sweetener of choice)
2 egg whites
1 cup almond milk
1/3 cup applesauce, unsweetened.

Preheat oven to 350 degrees F.
Spray and 8x8 baking dish with non-stick spray.
Mix ingredients for swirl mixture together and set aside.
In a large bowl, mix together all the dry ingredients first, then fold in the wet until  all the ingredients are blended well together.

Pour approx. 1/4 batter into the prepared baking dish.
Lightly coat that layer with 1/2 the swirl mixture.
Then pour the rest of the batter mixture on top of that,
and then rest of the swirl mixture on top of that layer.

Gently poke a knife into the poured layers and draw swirls throughout it, creating a marble affect.

Bake for 25-30 min, until a knife comes out clean.
*About 20 min in, I covered the dish with some aluminum foil to keep the top  from burning.

Let cool for 10 min,
