Protein bars

These protein bars are perfect after an intense workout or as an afternoon snack and they are really easy to make.


1/2 cup  of almonds – blended into a flour

1/2 cup of gluten free oats – blended into a flour

1/2 cup of vegan sun warrior vanilla  protein powder

1/2 cup  of cashew butter ( you can use almond butter if you prefer)

2 teaspoons of raw honey or maple syrup

1 teaspoon of vanilla essence

A splash of almond milk

For the chocolate topping

2 tablespoons of melted cocnonut oil

1/4 cup of raw cacao powder

1-2 tablespoons of raw honey or maple syrup depending on how sweet you like it.

I used measuring cups that I purchased from amazon for this recipe. Start by blending the oats and almonds until a flour forms,  then add the rest of the ingredients and blend. If it is too dry add a little more almond milk. Once it is nice and smooth press the mixture into a tray lined with parchment paper and place it in the freezer for 2 hours.  For the chocolate blend the ingredients and drizzle over the tray and place in the freezer for another 15 minutes then cut into slices and enjoy!
