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!
