So I set on out on a mission to make my own protein bars! Healthy, low glycemic, and packed with protein, healthy fats, and fiber. They can be made raw and/or vegan, or not.
Are they any protein bars on the market that you love?
Vanilla Chocolate Chip Protein Bars
2/3 cup blanched almond flour
1/2 cup vanilla protein powder of choice*
1/3 cup + 1 tablespoon psyllium
6 tablespoons shredded coconut
6 tablespoons almond butter
5-6 tablespoons coconut nectar
scant 1/4 cup coconut flour
2 tablespoons water
2 teaspoons vanilla
4 tablespoons melted coconut oil
6-8 tablespoons chocolate chips
In a bowl or food processor combine all but the coconut oil and chocolate chips (I used a bowl).
Add the oil.
Stir in the chocolate chips.
Press into the bottom of a regular size bread pan lined with plastic wrap, or container of your choice.
Chill in the fridge for a few hours. Slice into bars.
*I use stevia sweetened whey protein powder but you can use a vegan protein powder.
Remember, today is the last day for the Arbonne sea salt scrub giveaway HERE!!!
